I was wondering who among you use MSG in your cooking?

I'd be surprised if people still use msg for non-commercial cooking
I've gotta be honest, I didn't know that anyone outside of food "manufacturers" and crappy restaurants (well, and probably some not-so-crappy places too, unfortunately) used actual MSG powder. It was only fairly recently that I even noticed that jarred MSG was available at the supermarket, right with all the other dried herbs and spices. Kind of shocked me that it was available and sold that way.
Oddly enough, I think I might have had an MSG reaction last night. It was French/Cal food, not Chinese, so I am kind of skeptical about it being MSG, but I've had them before, and the symptoms were identical. Sfield, are high end places using this **** now?
there is only one easy way to UMAMI and thats MSG.
could any of these reactoins(thirsty e.g.) be a simple Salt reaction from the sodium in MSG? my mother adds MSG to vegetables but i am not sure if she adds it to anything else.
