Consider allergy?: Perhaps there can be some type of allergy you have with eggs? My suggestion would be to keep a food diary of everything you eat along with how you feel after those meals. See if there is a correlation with eggs and your symptoms. You may find it could be something else you are eating as well! ...Read more
