Possible Egg Allergy?

Hi,

I've been gluten-free for a couple years now, and have recently been noticing sensitivities to other foods. I had to eliminate soy and most dairy because they caused disgestive problems. But today was something new for me.

I tried a new recipe for cheese meringues (just egg whites, grated cheese, salt and pepper). The cheese I used is one that I can handle, so I don't suspect the cheese. But after eating one meringue (about the size of an apricot), both of my ears went all cottony...like they were suddenly filled with cotton, and there was a sort of ringing in my ears. It has been only about 15 minutes, and my ears still feel strange...like I'm wearing ear muffs. And I can't get them unplugged.

Can anyone who has experienced the gradual sensitization to various food groups tell me if they had a similar experience (or am I just going a little crazy here?)

P.S. a note on eggs: I actually despise eggs and rarely eat them....so I can't really say how I normally react to eggs.

I have noticed a sensitivity to a number of foods since being gluten-free 8 months now. I was fine with rice until recently--it seems to bring on my eczema. Soy and tapioca are other things I can no longer tolerate--those cause stomach pain. Eggs, I have had problems with for years--but not my whole life, probably the last 10 years or so. With eggs, I get the worst nausea about 4 hours after I eat them. It lasts several hours. Worse than gluten--just horrible. Needless to say, I avoid them like the plague! You may be becomming sensitive to them--since you don't eat them too much, you may have not noticed it before. Luckily, you don't like eggs, so it shouldn't be too hard for you to avoid them :)

Hi everyone, just wondering how we really detox our bodies of gluten and become suddenly or gradually sensitive to other things. Is it the damage that never really heals that causes this? I keep hearing these horror stories about more and more sensitivities after getting "gluten Clean" what is going on?

My thought on this.

I think MAYBE we all suffer from "leaky gut syndrome" where we get food allergies(in this case) to many foods because the gut lining has become leaky and is allowing these foods into the system. Look it up online...

I have studied it a bit and this is my theory. If you don't heal the gut lining completely by avoiding these offending foods for a period of time and avoiding any processed foods, coffee, sugar, chocolate which by the way are very irratating to an already sensitive system as celiacs have. Also start taking L-glutamine and other gut healing herbs before your meals. Another HUGEly important supplement is proteolytic enzymes and hydrochloric acid to be taken with meals also. This really helps to keep allergies dampened down too because it helps digest the food better. (you are probably wondering why so many supplements but I think again with our digestive sytems malfunctioning we had best do this all our lives.....

If we have Celiac disease (my thoughts are being presented here and I'm not saying I'm 100% positive :rolleyes: ) and realize that 80% of our immune system is in our gut lining (which is why we are more sensitive to other autoimmune disorders... then the leaky gut thing on top of it......

It is not as much fun to eat such a simple diet of veggies, fish, chicken etc.....but it is really where we need to be especially if you are running into all these other allergies and #1 find a GOOD naturopath with specialty or great understanding of celiac disease and allergies. I have one and I am so thankful.

I was told that all allergies whether to grass or pollen or foods are caused by the digestive/immune system

sorry for the dissertation :rolleyes:

regards mj
