Avoid pork: While you do not have an allergy, you may have a sensitivity to either some of the proteins or how it is prepared and i would avoid eating it. If you started noting headaches after eating raw or undercooked pork, you should know about cystercicosis, which can effect brain tissue as well.If you notice any changing neurologic signs, ask your primary to assess this very rare but possible disease.
