Hello! I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. But long before that I had most celiac symptoms and my diet at that time consisted mostly of wheat-based foods. I tried the gluten-free diet to very good results, but I had problems with almonds and popcorn. Unlike what everyone says they caused me some serious constipation for a week and I also had burning face/head/ears/neck (toxins?) while having cold hands. I felt like fainting and got anxious/nervous easily. I stopped eating almonds and popcorn altohether and got better. Fast forward to the last week when I ate some wallnuts and I got constipation again and I know the nuts are to blame as I have the same itch down there after going to the toilet (which is very hard and the first day I reacted was almost impossible). So here are my symptioms after eating nuts and popcorn:
- almost impossible for me to defecate
- head pain/dizzyness
- hot flashes in face/head/neck
- racing heart
- belly pain and feeling like puking
Please tell me, should I give up nuts as well as gluten? I hope its not toxic poisoning or something. I am going to do a 3-day detox and the candida diet. Is there anyone else here that had similar symptoms? It's like nuts block/stop my digestion. Yet every website out there says they actually help constipation.
