    You'll have to go to the Doctor to find out. People here won't be able to tell you.

    nah i wouldnt bother my gp for something this trivial lol :oops:

    he has more than enough on his plate

    just wondered if anyone else had this reaction to nuts thats all

    i would only worry if you got a swelling on your mouth/face ........maybe you just ate too many??lol

    Depends on the amount.
    If you eat say 2 kilos it could hurt.
    But a small bag of KP's should be ok.:thumbsup:

    Worth finding out as if you are allergic then just because they haven't killed you yet doesn't mean they can't. On the other hand it just could be an intollerance to them.

    lots of ppl have an intollerance to some nuts and not all, be worth eating diff ones on diff days and working it out.

    Brazils, and hazelnuts are the ones i know ppl to have sensitivity too

    yeah thats a good idea

    thanks for your help and opinions everyone xx

    You clearly don't have an allergy to nuts, as if you did, you wouldn't be posting this question after consuming so many. You may however have an intolerance to them, so they're best avoided in your case.

    Either that, or the nuts you've been eating are contaminated - fairly common to get this with nuts, they harbour bacteria very well.

    Sounds like intolerance.
    Mum has those symptoms when she has anything with yeast in.

    Can't you get an allergy test where they p.rick/swipe you on the arm with a bunch of different things to see if you have any reaction.

    Like the six p.ricks thing you had to get before your BCG vaccination as a kid.

    Had to put a full stop in ***** or they censor the non-sweary version of the word.

    I can consume as many nuts as I like even though I'm allergic to them, still only causes swelling on my lips, tongue, throat and then stomach aches. I get the urge to drink a gallon of milk after wards though. Only allergic to Brazil, Almond and Walnuts.

    doubt the traditional skin tolerence test would be of any benefit here, its worth finding out if its just one type of nut tho.
    peanuts have a bacteria which grows on them that releases highly poisonous and carcinogenic chemicals so never touch out of date or "musty" smelling peanuts incl peanut products.
    whilst there may not be any short term problems long term irritation of the bowels can cause cancer and other problems so even if only a bad stomach ensues best avoid.

    seriously go to the GP......

    I have an allergy to brazil nuts, swelling of lips, tongue and throat. Even small traces can cause a tingling in lips and tongue. If you just get the sh1ts then don't eat 'em.

    Well, in that case, you don't have a pronounced allergy - a true allergic reaction in terms of a nut allergy produces significantly more serious side effects. Yours sounds pretty weird however, similar side effects, but no anaphylaxis.

    That's like saying people who sneeze when the pollen count is high don't have hay fever, allergic reactions take many different forms. I have a very bad reaction to dust mites and cats (I've been tested at hospital) which causes me to wheeze with dust mites and get itchy eyes with cats. I also suffer from hay fever. I have been left with severe red eyes in the summer sometimes only one eye has been red. They put me on the strongest steroids to calm them down, as no over the counter stuff works. I never sneeze, a guy at work gets blocked ears when the pollen count is high. I have gone into a vet once and came out gasping for air my chest was so tight. Mostly though I just get a slight wheeze when breathing polluted air, and yes I also have asthma and eczema. The three go together apparently.

    Very sensible.

    NHS will only do allergy tests if possible severe symptoms. Does sound like an intolerance, not an allergy.
