In Topic: Reaction To Almonds?

03 April 2014 - 06:38 AM

curious....as a vegetarian do you eat tomatoes, peppers, potatoes and eggplant


nightshades can cause joint pain


i'm not saying almonds can't be problematic for some folks -- just hate to see you lose a great source of protein and good fat.


also double check your almonds are from a gluten-free source -- i had a heck of a time finding raw almonds that were not processed in a shared facility.

Thanks Lisa, and yes I do eat tomatoes, peppers and potatoes with no issues.  It is definitely almonds and now cashews too... I am giving up all tree nuts for awhile and will see if the pain abates.  You are right as a vegetarian I do not like losing these proteins either, but it seems necessary.  I tried nuts that were from 3 different sources, supposedly gluten free, so I think it is really the nuts themselves at fault.  I will post again after being tree nut free for a month or two and let you know how it is. :)

I may be unable to eat almonds. I have been doing very well off gluten. I also went off dairy. While on gluten I had bad left shoulder pain, neck pain,TMJ-left jaw, and left knee problems. They went 95% away!!!! biggrin.gif Truly a miracle.
A week and a half ago I introduced almonds into my diet. Nuts and milk. A few days later my joint pain came back for a whole week. But no mood issues(which I get from gluten). I have been eating almonds almost every day since then. GI is a little weirded out, but it hasn't totally rebalanced since going off gluten and then dairy. This time it is affecting more joint and bone areas than use to hurt. I thought either I am now reacting to corn ohmy.gif or almonds. I had continued on corn and soy. After my pain came back I went of soy. I still am having the pain. So I am going off corn and almonds. And then testing each seperately. Does anyone else have this problem from almonds. The pain is also in my arms and hands. That sucks.

At first it was almonds that affected my joints... now it appears that cashews are also doing it :(  I am so sore right now!  So, I think I will just quit all tree nuts, this is tricky because as well as being Celiac I am a vegetarian, not vegan thank goodness, because I am already restricted enough!
