Does Anyone Else Experience This?

Recommended Posts

I am not sure why this happened but the other day I ate some gluten free chicken salad that had a little bit of spice to it. As i was eating it, my scalp and the back of my neck started to burn and I felt this weird sensation like pins and needles. Then today i ate some eggs that I made-and I had a smiliar sensation but not half as bad. Anyone else experience this or know what might be causing it??

Any chance you are taking any kind of cold medicine? I've had pins and needles in my head from cold medicine. I think it was sudafed. It was a long time ago.

I had that feeling at times when I was eating chicken a while ago (am otherwise a vegetarian). I tested negative to skin prick allergy for it, but each time I ate it the sensations got worse. I also has the big D and swelling of the lips that got worse each time I ate it, and I got some throat tightness the last time, so I gave up.

I also had a lesser but noticable reaction to eggs, lip tingling primarily but also face flushing and skin sensations.

At the time I considered that it might be due to chemicals in the chicken, but even organic chicken made me react. If you are reacting to chicken and eggs in a weird way I would consider an intolerance or mild allergy.

Interesting...thanks for your replies. I am thinking since I have leaky gut syndrome that maybe I am developing other food allergies as well. The gluten free chicken salad I purchased was from a restaraunt so most likely it wasn't organic-normally I don't eat much meat and when I do I only eat organic which doesn't seem to bother me. I have been eating a lot more eggs lately as I was told to up my protein intake. Maybe I need to do a rotation diet? The doctor also just told me I have malabsorption issues so that is probably adding to it.

I have not been taking any cold medicine have only just started an isotonic vitamin, but that doesn't seem to be bothering me.

You may have an allergy to eggs. The mayonnaise in the chicken salad is made from eggs. I would definitely check this out with an allergist asap and avoid eating anything made from eggs until You do so. This sounds like the beginning of a bad reaction to an allergen.

I forgot about the mayonnaise having eggs...I am definitly going to stay away from them until I get tested. I visit the doctor next week-so I will be asking him. Thanks!
