Oyster Mushrooms

I have no idea if this is the right forum for this question, but here goes anyway...

I don't have any known allergies to anything at all, but the last (in fact, the ONLY) 3 times I've eaten oyster mushrooms, I've been sick as a dog for several hours.

Is there something in oyster mushrooms that doesn't occur elsewhere, especially in other kinds of mushrooms? Or am I perhaps incorrectly blaming them for the reaction I had? I suppose it may be possible that there was some other ingredient in the food....

Maybe you must confirm that you are not allergic to mushrooms or other fungal organisms. Ask a lab to test you for that with a RAST test for the suspected substance/food.
