Has anyone had it? I bought 2 bags yesterday b/c it was on sale 2 for $8. I thought it tasted too good to be true, but then I'm not sure if my problem is from this. I ate quite a bit of it yesterday and started feeling like crap today and woke up with some minor discomfort in my abdominal area. I started devoloping a headace and just started feeling really tired and not wanting to do anything. It's almost like a gluten reaction, but without all the bloating and gas. I have had some problems with seeds and nuts in the past so I'm thinking this must be it, I cant have this stuff anymore :( I also have not been having a fun time going to the bathroom, It's not C but it just seems like it doesnt want to come out all at once, its like whenever I eat stuff like this it just sits in my colon

Can seeds/nuts cause headace and tiredness like gluten can??? I also am thinking maybe diverticulosis?? I went to the ER in the past for lower right abdominal pain ( which I get slightly in the same spot when I eat seeds/nuts), but the ER trip is when I ate wheat nuts- they couldnt give me an answer to my problem, other than they were ready to operate on my for apendicitis :blink: it def.wasn't that though as the pain went away...

I've also had pms for 3 weeks now :angry: , so maybe that is the prob- I can't tell anymore!!!!

I eat their products all the time and have had no problems gluten wise. I love their pnut butter and chocolate chip granola bars also.

Diverticulosis might cause some pain but generally it will be on the left side in the descending colon. That said it is not uncommon for those of us who have had problems with C to have the diverticuli spread out throughout the large intestine. These outcropping can apparently heal as mine after 5 years gluten free are now pretty much gone on last scope. If you have diverticulosis and the diverticuli (the outpouchings themselves) should happen to get inflammed you would feel extremely ill in additon to being in a great deal of pain. This would be an attack of diverticulitis and a medical emergency that you should get help for ASAP.

It used to be advised that those with diverticulosis avoid nuts and seeds because they could be an irritating but not all doctors agree on this.

I would be inclined to wonder if you have perhaps an allergy or an intolerance to something that is in the granola. That would be more likely to cause tiredness and a headache. Another possibility also since you mention you have been PMSing for three weeks is that you may have gluten sneaking in somewhere. It there anything you added to your personal products or your diet in the week before you started feeling yucchy?

thanks for the info. I actually used to get the pain down the left side of my abdomonen (starting just below the rib and moving all the way down) it would get so bad that I would feel naucious and have to lay on my stomach. Now I only get the pain if I eat seeds/nuts, but nothing like when I have wheat.

As far as new foods, I could be feeling yucky b/c of processed foods. I told myself that I wasnt going to eat any for a while, but it is so tempting to buy them, especially now that I am working full time and look for easy things to bring to work. Generally I eat pretty good with lots of veggies/fruits and whole foods, but I did start introducing corn into my diet again, so that may be part of the main problem. I've tried tomato sauce on and off, it never works well with me either. It's almost impossible for me to avoid CC completely since I live with gluten eaters and work with people who snack by the computers and share the break room, but I am always washing my hands/cleaning things- I'm well aware of it. I don't seem to really have a major reaction until I ingest the actual gluten grains . If I am CC'd a lot I will sometimes get a migrane or slight headace, but if I actually eat gluten grains I start getting the major digestive problems. I just feel like I keep starting over. I think I have it down, but then it all comes back...what a learning process... <_<
