Egg Allergy?

Recommended Posts

I have been suspecting an egg allergy for a while. Yesterday morning, I made scrambled eggs for myself and my toddlers. I haven't eaten plain eggs for a while. We went to the store shortly after we ate, and I couldn't make it through the trip w/out going to the bathroom. I was so embarrassed because the cleaning guy showed up just after I did, and he let me go in. Well, I took a few minutes while he waited outside. I know he was wondering what was taking so long. :o

Well, all day yesterday, I had mild diarrhea. Starting around 3am this morning, I have had BAD D and gas. And I keep burping and is smells like a rotten egg or something.

Does this sound like an egg allergy? I have eggs in other cooked products like bread, muffins, etc and I dont' get D. But I can't seem to eat them alone. Any ideas?

Thanks!

It sounds more like an intolerance to me. I'm the same way--I can not eat eggs plain, but do fine if there are one or two in a recipe.

I get nausea about 4 hours after--and I've had allergy skin-scratch testing, so I'm sure I'm not allergic.

I have a delayed allergy to eggs, fairly high number on the test and when I eat eggs I get sick to my stomach, dizzy, out of sorts and fumble around a lot. It's rather weird and disconcerting but still there.

Yes, it sounds like an intolerance to me. When I was younger I could eat eggs without problems. Then slowly, I developed more and more problems to them. First it was with eggs by themselves, then also with dishes with appreciable egg in them. Now I seem to react to every bit of egg.

The only time I had egg for 7 years was in baked products, and this was very occasional (like holidays). But Enterolab testing still showed me as reacting by creation of antibodies, even though I didn't notice a reaction in terms of symptoms.

I have an egg allergy. I can't eat even a speck of egg. Become very ill. Throwing up and coming out the other end as well. The first time I eat an egg, it seems to take about 16 hours for me to get sick. But if I am fool enough to eat an egg again the day after, I will get sick about 30 minutes later. This happened to me before I confirmed the allergy. I became so sick though that I vowed never to eat another egg after the 2nd such incident. The first time I passed it off as food poisoning. Wrong!

I have the same thing. I can't eat eggs straight but can eat things with some eggs in them, liked baked goods. I don't test positive to egg allergy. I get horrible stomach cramps and constipation that last for most of a day. Its more painful than gluten actually.
