For a long time (10+ years) I have had a reaction to eggs. It used to just be uncooked yolks that would cause me to visit the washroom about 20-30 min after eating them and involved some cramping. It was more an inconvenience than anything else and I could prepare for it. It gradually has gotten to the point where the whites affect me in the same way as well.
In the past few weeks I have also noticed what I believe is a new symptom. Achiness and muscle fatigue to the point where I have some trouble walking around without muscle relaxants. I had attributed this to being obese and a general result of eating poorly, but I think this symptom may just be tied to eggs. Because I can now look back and see what I have eaten back to October 9, 2015, I can see my egg consumption. And it overlaps with my physical symptoms that I am talking about.
Now, let me be very clear. I love eggs. I love them fried, scrambled, poached, over-easy, on burgers, in noodles, stone bowl, omelet – every which way. They are full of healthy and yummy goodness, and I am quite sad over this development.
So I am going to go three weeks without eggs, starting on February 15. Why wait you ask? Well Christine is heading away for a week and I will looking after the kids full-time and I don’t want to add the burden of different breakfasts in that time. I also don’t know if this includes eggs in baking as I don’t think I have the same reaction.
I know of one other person who has egg problems, are there more of us?
