Can quorn make you ill? Watch
So, I'll just get straight to it - basically, I'm a vegetarian and I regularly eat quorn. I had some tonight.. and it's been about 4 hours since I last ate it, and I've got really bad stomach pains, an upset belly and I feel reallyy really sick. I was just wondering if quorn can make you ill, like - if you've not cooked it properly?
I'm feel like I'm burning up, my mouths really dry, and I can't stop shaking I'm not sure if it's the quorn.. or just as a result of some of the rubbish I've been eating recently?
My mum ate the same thing, and she said she feels fine.. so, any suggestions?
Much appreciated, thank you
Could just be a general stomach upset rather than something you've eaten, everyone gets them from time to time.
if you google it a LOT of material comes up. obviously the web isn't the most accurate source of medical information, but there's a compilation of complaints here:
it might be worth keeping a diary for when you do eat quorn (if you are a vegetarian this may be quite often, afterall) and detail your reactions afterwards. if it persists go to your doctor's with the diary for allergy testing perhaps?
i hope you feel better soon! i get that with dry pasta and it's hell :/ xox
Although it's strange you have eaten it before and you've been fine but obviously reactions to things can pop up overnight, if it happens again- if you ever feel like eating it again go to the doctor.
And I wouldn't say you were allergic or anything if you eat it regularly :\
