Has anyone ever had problems while hiking due to certain plants in the area? I was recently on a hike with family and this plant (Avena Fatua) was all over the place. It's also know as "wild oats." I became very bloated and have never had this happen before.

I've certainly read of ppl living in/near wheat-farming areas having problems at harvest time, so it's reasonable to me that wild oats could be a hazard.
Haven't heard of it before but maybe (wise) others will chime in otherwise.

I think that there would have had to be fine particles of the grains in the air for you to breathe in, or you would have had to eat some. Did you try some new convenience food or eat out on the way there or back? That might be a more likely source of your problems.
