egg allergies

I've developed a few food intolerances after having kids, and one of them seems to be eggs.
I forgot stupidly chanced my luck that this weekend and had some scrambled eggs. It wasn't a massive portion, only a tablespoon's worth or two spoons at the most, but within a couple of hours I ended up glued to the couch with a hot water bottle for stomach ache, a headache and a massive need to sleep.
At the time I never took any drugs to get rid of the symptoms because I felt too awful to move or think about what was best.
Right now I have asked to be shot if I forget and eat them again, but I was wondering - for those of you with similar intolerances/results, would you ride out the symptoms or take anything, and if you take something what do you recommend?

Hi, I've not got food allergies myself but my DS has. So can't help with your experience. But I did want to highlight that sudden sleepyness can be a sign of anaphaletic shock. So perhaps you need to see your GP/specialist?
