Greetings o great and wise paleo community. I'm doing some self experimentation- food elimination/re-introduction stuff and my target is nuts. Mostly almonds. I understand some problems with too many o6's in nuts as potentially pro-inflammatory. But i was wondering if anyone has noticed a mild headache behind eyes after eating almonds? feels similar to what happens after i have a large cheat wheat burrito. Seems to take about 30m-1 hour after eating. sometimes lasts rest of day. Any similar experiences or info would be great. Thanks everyone!

thanks for the feedback. Didn't know they weren't nuts, interesting. I'm pretty much done with almonds. Plenty of other great paleo foods to eat instead!

When I eat a lot of almonds, especially nut butter or flour, my stomach seems a tiny bit unhappy about it.

I have experience not being allergic to almonds, despite being allergic to most nuts. Almonds are drupes, technically not nuts, so an allergy to one but not the other is easily possible.

I have never had your particular experience with anything - allergies generally cause part of my lip to swell, or my tongue to feel weird if it's a very serious reaction.

In any case... just don't eat em!
