I love peanut butter and peanuts! Why is it that when I eat them I get extremely bad stomach cramps and feel nauseous.

I don`t have any other symptoms.
I don`t get sick, I don`t get a headache, I don`t have diarrhea, I don`t get light headed.

  • I can eat peanut-butter, but I cannot handle nuts. They cramp my stomach up horribly... I was told it was most likely a sensitivity or that my digestive system becomes irritated by them, because they do not break down further in your system than what you chew. Since yours involves peanut-butter, I'd assume it was a sensitivity to the legume itself.

    From someone that's been there, I'm sorry. It sucks.

  • I can't eat them either. I'm not sure why. Do you get that way with any other foods?

  • It sounds like a food sensitivity, that is likely to get worse with each exposure. Try sunflower seeds and sunflower seed butter or soynuts and soynut butter instead.

  • Have you considered,it might be an allergic reaction. My ds has an allergy to peanuts and he tells me that he really wants to eat them. A food allergy can effect ppl in different ways,be careful.

  • food sensitivity is my guess

  • It sounds like an allergy. Stop eating them and talk to your doctor. If you keep eating them your allergy could get worse. Both my children have a peanut allergy so I know something about this.

  • m-avi-yes I do, it just so happens that I had peanut butter today. Other thing that bother more my breathing are slice cheese, hard cheese, cheez whiz and mayonnaise and mayonnaise based dressings. How about youÉ

  • It could be the oil in the peanuts. They just might not sit well with your digestive system, in breaking it down.
