Anyone Know If Eggs Can Cause Intestinal Gas?
0

11 posts in this topic

I had two very plain scrambled eggs (no milk or anything) yesterday and today i have intestinal gas like something is alive in me. Does this make sense to anyone? I know besides gluten, dairy really gives me intestinal gas...but what about eggs??

You could have egg (white and/or yolk) allergies. If your celiac symptoms were misdiagnosed for many years, you can develop other IgG or IgA antibody mediated allergies, in addition to gluten intolerance. Consider getting an ELISA blood test panel for IgG allergies to 100 commonly eaten foods. Or eliminate all egg, gluten and dairy products and observe whether intestinal gas disappears.

Oh yes--eggs can definately have that effect! I get gas, and terrible nausea from eggs. I find that I can only eat them if they are a small part of a recipe--I could never eat them plain.

Ahhhhhhhhh...that makes sense to me! The gluten/dairy free bread i buy has a tiny amount of eggs in it and it never bothers me, but the regular eggs seem to bother me. Does anything else bother you? Thanks for your help!!

Unfortunately, I have many intolerances! They would include:dairy, soy, legumes, coconut, and tapioca. I figured them out, with the help of my allergist, who suggested an elimination diet.

Do all of these intolerances have the same effect on you?

They all cause various degrees of GI problems--the worst being soy (cramping, gas) and tapioca (D, nausea, stomach pain). I suspect the legumes may have been the cause of my long standing eczema because after I cut those out, it went away, and has not returned.

The intolerances tend to only cause physical symptoms for me--gluten, on the other hand, causes both GI and neurological issues.

Yeah eggs mess me up something fierce too. I can handle things with eggs in them, like bread, but just eating an eggs or something that is mainly egg takes me out for about a day. Feirce stomach cramping/nausea pain without the ability to pass anything. UGh.

I also get gas, diarrhea, joint pain, brain fog and extreme exhaustion from eggs. When I tested eggs in January (after not eating them for 3 months), I went to bed at 10:00 PM (I was suddenly awfully tired), and didn't wake up until 3:00 PM the next day! I thought the clock must have stopped. Those eggs just put me right out. And I only ate a few bites of the scrambled eggs I made for my family.

Am I remembering correctly that you got glutened or ill or something a few days ago? Sorry I can't remember for sure .... there are so many people on the board ...

If you were, maybe that is causing you to be sensitive to eggs -- I know my tummy is sensitive when it's upset. You might cut them out for a week or two, then test. Or else do the allergy testing that someone recommended.

I used to be able to eat eggs every three days, but not anymore. They give me horrible gas and bloating immediately now. I can have them in a cake or something though. Marcia

    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
