I my stomach has sharp pains/ feels gassy and is follwed by diahrrea after I eat out at a restaurant, not always, but with increasing frequency. Until the other day, it had never happened at home. I’m wondering if I could be allergic to something that I’ve been eating, but I’m having a hard time narrowing it down. Here is what has made me feel sick:
months ago: Eating at Chili’s- Fried chicken, (fried) southwest eggrolls, and spinach artichoke cheese dip (with chips). I figured at this point that it was just that I was eating so much bad/fried stuff when i normally don’t eat that stuff. Also I had a styrawberry margarita.
Two days ago: Eating at a local (non-chain) italian restaurant- Red wine, a pasta dish that contained: duck confit, goat cheese, green apples, squash, pecans, homemade pasta, and a butter sauce.
Yesterday: Eating at home- boxed freezer-section chicken eggrolls, ingredients include: chicken, cabbage, celery, vegetable oil (soybean and/or cottonseed oil), sugar, onion, soy flour, sesame oil, wheat flour, eggs, and a bunch of things nobody has heard of.
It has occured previous occasions, but I don’t remember the details.
I’m at a loss here. It seemed like the common thread might be vegetable oil (oil is often used to make pasta), because I always use canola oil at home, but vegetable oil is often mostly soybean oil, and according to the internet it isn’t considered an allergen.
My next guess would be the chemicals likely found in chain food like chilis and also in the boxed rolls, but why would there be such chemicals in the food at the local place, who I think makes everything from scratch?
I’m not allergic to gluten, since I can eat bread and feel perfectly fine. Same with dairy and eggs. It’s not food poisoning, since it occurs anywhere from 10-30 minutes after I’ve eaten, which is too soon for that.
Any suggestions? Thanks bees! I’m eating the other two egg rolls from the box now as a test.
