Hello everyone!
 
Ever since i was little i loved to eat chicken. When i grew older however, something weird occurred when i ate it. It would feel as if my throat would close and open, pulsing every 5 minutes. I also notice phlegm in the back of my throat. It goes away after an hour or so but the pain is horrible. No one in my family believes this, neither do my friends. I stay away from chicken all the time now, but i get tempted to eat it sometimes! I also notice this starting to happen when i eat turkey. Could this be an allergy to poultry or something like acid reflux? Thank you!

Poultry allergy is actually quite common and everyone can have different symptoms as well as severity. It's good that you are avoiding it for the time being but you should see a doctor to confirm your suspicions. Better safe then sorry :)

26 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

Hi,

I have a 91/2 month old daughter and we have been experimenting with solids recently. The first time we tried chicken (about 2 weeks ago) she projectile vomited once about 4 hours later followed by an hour of vomiting. The poor thing had nothing left in her tummy by the end of it! She had also been sick with a bad cold and chest cough at the time and the d/octor put it down to a virus rather than an allergy. I tried a tiny bit of chicken again recently and the result was the same, although not as intense as the first time. Is this a normal reaction for an allergy? I thought most food allergies resulted in a rash of some kind . . . could it be something to do with her age and stomach not being ready rather than an allergy to chicken? If anyone has any info or suggestions I would appreciate it  . . needless to say we are keeping away from chicken!!!

Thanks

It could be that her stomach is just sensitive to it right now. Allergies come in all shapes and sizes. There is no ONE standard rule on how someone is going to respond to an allergen. What type of chicken have you used? Did you try the pureed chicken pate' (baby food) to see if she responds the same or did you just give her cooked chicken like an adult would eat? Store bought chicken has so many additional things (antibiotics, growth hormones etc) in them that maybe she is responding negatively to that instead of the chicken. If you gave her just plain cooked chicken, you can try maybe puree'ing free range chickens (these chickens are grown naturally with none of that "junk" in them - they can be found at most stores) to see if she can tolerate that. Maybe start small and see how she reacts. If she has the same symptoms, you can try taking her in for testing. If she keeps vomiting every time you give her chicken, it's best not to push the matter because it can make her allergy worse and cause more complications.

I found out I was allergic to chicken at age 27.  I worked for an industrial chemical company in the middle of many oil refineries in Corpus.  The only fast food place to eat was Whataburger.  I ate all different types of chicken after getting tired of burgers.  I started becoming violently ill after lunch everyday.  I had to go to the restroom immediately after eating.  My stool was a bright yellow liquid that looked like straight bile.  I started skipping lunch and decided it must be stress. After getting to about 90 pounds, my family insisted I go to a doctor.  I started with a colonoscopy and was referred to an allergist.  I found out that I was allergic to chicken and peanuts.  Both were major parts of my diet.  I feel much better now but cannot eat anywhere that food is fried in the same grease as chicken or I have the same reaction.  I still have other symptoms such as adult acne and frequently get migraines and see dark floaters in my eyes.  Are these related to other possible food allergies?  I am down to eating red meat and salads.
