Quoth Senegoid:

Data point: Myself. MSG sometimes affects me this way. It appears to be only large doses, as Chinese food was often reputed to contain. Foods like Campbell's canned soup or other such prepared foods have never bothered me, even though they often list MSG among the ingredients.
So, foods that contain loads of MSG don't affect you, and therefore you must be susceptible to MSG?

There's a hole in this thinking. OK, maybe there is something in Chinese food that isn't found in other food that you have a bad reaction to. But it can't be MSG, because MSG is not something that isn't found in other food.
