#911245 Reaction To Almonds?

Posted by on 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. :)

#746922 What Does Super Sensitive Mean?

Posted by on 12 November 2011 - 09:49 AM

The more posts I read, the more AHA moments I have. Guess maybe I am pretty sensitive too, thought a lot of my issues (joint pain and nerve pain) were just 'me' Sad to say it appears lots of us have these issues. ;)
And, note to self............Keep smilin' Life is good!

#746547 Joint Pain

Posted by on 10 November 2011 - 09:24 PM

This forum has been fascinating for me to read. I have miserable pain in my hands and wrists particularly. Sometimes in my ankles and feet....also back and neck. I was tested for RA and that came back negative. The 'arthritis I don't have hurts a lot' is kind of my thinking. I have only been celiac diagnosed for a couple of months now. So, I haven't seen a huge change in my wrists/hands (I spent 26 years doing percussive therapy on my daughter who has Cystic Fibrosis, so figured hands/wrist pain was kind of a RSI) BUT I have been eating dairy the last couple of weeks. (since I started having lactaid tablets for it) I am just figuring out maybe the dairy is not helping. Also I see people relating their pain to soy (oh my gosh, I am vegetarian and would really miss soy) and also nightshades (will have to google to see what those consist of) I will cut out the dairy :( and see if that helps. If not then I will try cutting out soy and see if that does it. I really thought that I was doomed to just 'hurt' But maybe there is hope yet! I will post again if I find something that helps this. But I did want to thank you all........My doctor did NOT suggest that the pain could possibly be related to the Celiac disease. Please know, all of you, your posts are most helpful!

#735908 Too Old For A Diagnosis?

Posted by on 03 October 2011 - 07:58 AM

Hi, I am a new member, and I thought it was interesting to see how many of us are older when we are diagnosed. Just thought I'd share something with you all. I am diagnosed (last month)only because my Mother was first. Oh.... yeah and I should add that I am 50 years old and she is 80 years old. She has had 'classic celiac' symptoms her whole life.
In the month since she has been gluten free, she has felt, in her own words "Like a new woman"! (As have I, but that is irrelevant to this post!)
Thank you all for your posts and your humour!
