Sudden reaction to Almonds??
nscottderr posted:
Recently I ate several handsful of roasted almonds. I eat a small handful every few days and have for years. When I ate the large amount, within 30 minutes, I had severe cramps, sudden diarrhea and vomiting. The cramping and diarrhea reminded me of Diverticulitis attacks I get a couple of times a year. Would almonds trigger the Diver. or should I have them tested for ...something? Full day of very cramped bowels and weakness.

If the episode was triggered within that short period of time, I doubt it could have been a diverticular issue, but keep an eye on that side of things. What happened sounds a lot like some kind of antibody generated allergic reaction. You may want to consider getting some testing to see if you've developed an allergy - something along the lines of an IgE-mediated issue, since the time span of reaction would suggest that - to that food.
