Allergy Question, Anxiety

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm not sure where to put this so I'm going to post it here. Please let me know if there would be another more appropriate forum.

Just starting today I've cut out dairy and wheat because I'm nearly certain that one of the two is giving me problems. Anyhow, I went a fried myself an egg this morning and minutes after I ate it something odd started to happen. I got shaky and all anxious feeling. I don't mean to say that I feel anxious over any particular thing as my head is calm and nothing's occurred to make me anxious. I'm just jittery, a little shakey. (I've only had a little coffee this morning.)

What the heck is going on? Can this be a reaction to the egg? I've never heard of having that type of reaction to a food, and it's really the only thing that's going on. No rash, no swelling or any other such symptom.

Thanks in advance, guys!

did you only have an egg, what oil did u use. I get like that when i was on the 6wbm, but i would have an egg, oatmeal and fruit. Also did you have any gluten residue in the pan that u fried your egg on. Also how much is just a little coffee. Even an sip makes me jittery but i havent done caffeine for yrs.

I only had one egg fried in canola oil spray. There may have been gluten residue on the pan, but I scrubbed it pretty thoroughly before I used it.

I usually have maybe 1.5-2 cups of coffee daily, but this morning I only had about a half a cup. I have it every day also, and it really doesn't effect me at all anymore.

Basically, I'm just wondering if that feeling can be attributed to anything I've eaten, because it seemed to spring up for no reason. (I had some mayo for lunch, and I noticed the jittery feeling seemed to pop back up aferwards.)

Does anyone have this kind of reaction to a food other than coffee?

Well,

Doesn't sound like an anaphylactic response so I would repeat the exercise with the fried egg and see if you get the same effect. If so, perhaps you have developed an allergy to an egg protein or egg lipo-protein. Development of food allergies, by the way, is a well known and common by product of Celiac disease. Damage to the intestinal mucosa allows proteins to leak into the blood stream where they are detected as invaders by the immune system which then produces antibodies. Thereafter, your body will treat them as an allergen. These protein molecules are too large to pass though a healthy gut lining. This is called "leaky gut syndrome."

I started my gluten-free diet in September and started eating more eggs as a result. One morning I made myself a nice big omelet with sausage and everything. I felt anxious, flushed, and a faster heartbeat. I took a food sensitivity blood test and tested very sensitive to eggs. You might also be sensitive to eggs at this point in your life. I don't know if my newly discovered food sensitivities are related to the onset of my gluten-intolerance symptoms, but the timing is uncanny, so I am on a rotation diet that excludes eggs for several months.

Ah, thank you Steve! This would explain my increased food sensitivities - I never had so many weird symptoms in my life after meals but after my gluten problems surfaced, I have had to change my diet completely, including taking a food sensitivity test. I feel better but anxiety is a by product of all this.
