i think i may be starting to have a problem with corn. we have been using so many more corn products since my girls were diagnosed with celiac that i think maybe i have either started an intolerance, or i am using enough of it now to bring an as-of-yet-unknown tolerance out into the light. did that make sence? when i eat corn products i get a thick, yucky feeling in the back of my throat that can last for hours---like i am having sinus drainage that is originating just below my sinuses. does this sound familier to anyone?

Chrissy,
I don't have the same symptoms that you do, but I cannot tolerate any corn whatsoever! Yes....you are making sense. It is confusing.

If you are looking to see if it the problem, try taking corn out. However, to get it truly out, it is really difficult. It is the obvious--tortillas, chips, baking mixes, canned corn, etc...and the less obvious-medicines, soft drinks, seasoning packets, enriched rice, etc etc.

Let me know if I can help in any way. www. cornallergen. com (without the spaces) has been a good resource for me in learning about corn.

Hope this helps-let me know what happens!

I don't have that reaction to corn, though I do to blueberries. It sounds like an allergic reaction. Does it happen within 2 hours of eating corn (usually within 15-20 minutes)?

if you end up needing this, it was recently updated (taken from a member of the Delphi corn forum):

If it happens right after, please stop eating corn. Look into avoiding corn. Corn derivatives etc. I'm not sure what you had for dinner, but most likely there was some form of corn.

From what you're describing it could be a start of your throat swelling. Tests for corn allergy are not all that accurate, avoiding and trying it again later is the only real accurate way to "test" for it.

But to avoid it is hard.
