Egg allergy/intolerance only evident with certain preparations?

I've been noticing recently that I have acute digestive reactions (cramping, pain, nausea, all sorts of intestinal distress) when I eat: 1) runny or raw egg yolks, and 2) any egg preparation which has a skewed yolk to white ratio (sometimes I will add some whites in with whole eggs for volume/texture).

Scrambled eggs, omelets, and egg-based "pancakes" (eggs with bananas/pumpkin/sweet potato/etc.) don't seem to cause a reaction. For reference, these are all "organic/omega 3" grocery store eggs--not ideal, but the best I can get for now.

My question is: is anyone familiar with this experience? Am I developing a full-blown allergy, and could there be low-grade inflammation with the whole cooked eggs that I'm just not noticing yet? Should I stop eating all eggs or just the preparations that are obviously bothering me?

I am a law student with not much money so it would be a little tragic to give up eggs completely. Thanks so much for any insight!!
