Ever since having my daughter 8 months ago, I can't eat eggs or tilapia without a ridiculous amount of stomach pain. The pain is right in the area where my ribs meet my sternum and the pain is a deep, constant pain, which results in tons of bloating (almost making me look pregnant). On average, the pain lasts 5-7 HOURS straight, despite taking Tums or Zantac, drinking milk, drinking water, eating carbs (before or after), etc. The pain doesn't really feel like heart burn, because it's not really burning and it's so low.
I've tried eating just egg whites, just 1 egg, scrambled eggs/over easy, etc - all resulting in the same thing. I've only ever tried baking the tilapia.
I can eat tuna just fine, as well as other seafood. I drink coffee without issues. I can have tomatoes and other acidic fruits (pineapple) and not have any issues.
Anyway, I need to see a doctor after we move (military move yay), but I'm just wondering if anyone has ever heard of such a thing and whether it sounds like an allergy or some other GI issue? I'm sort of baffled that pregnancy could create a food allergy.
Obviously, the answer right now is to just avoid those foods (which I've been doing), but I'd love to "fix" this issue eventually since I miss eggs...a lot.
