I have been getting severe cramping in my upper stomach after eating a handful of almonds.

I ve been getting severe cramping in my upper stomach after eating a handful of almonds. I have always eaten almonds as a morning snack but this pain is all of a sudden happening. The almonds that I eat are Raw (no added salt, just whole natural). Do Almonds cause severe stomach pain? I am extremely fit (exercise 6 days a week for over an hour each day). I eat a regular, low-fat, high protein, high fiber diet (and have eaten this way for some time now). I am a 37 year old female.

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Almonds are considered a common causative substance that could cause stomach cramps and other gastrointestinal symptoms. If you notice that you only develop stomach cramping after eating almonds, talk with your doctor to determine the cause of your symptoms. Stomach cramping may also be a sign of food poisoning after eating raw almonds. Stop eating almonds for a while, If you develop severe cramps, you can take a single capsule of Spasmo Proxyvon as and when you require it. Take Care.
