Thai allergy?

Cat | Jan 22, 200409:16 AM     16

In the past two years, I have apparently developed an allergy to an ingredient regularly used in Thai food. Before this, I used to eat Thai food regularly with no problem. The last times I became ill, I had vegetable pad thai, vegetable drunken noodles, and some type of vegetable curry dish. I have gone a couple times with no reaction; on these occasions, I ate curry dishes with a thicker, coconut-based curry sauce.

If anyone can help with identifying a possible ingredient that's the culprit, I would be really appreciative since I miss Thai food terribly. This has never occurred with any other type of food for me. FYI, I have no other food allergies that I'm aware of.

Thanks for your help! In the meantime, I have avoided all Thai food and have been fine.
