Weird feeling after eating almonds

I have a dish on my desk that contains some roasted cashes, roasted almonds, and raw almonds. I eat a few every now and then as a nice little protein based snack. However, afterward, I sometimes get a very weird feeling in my mouth, and I think it's because of the almonds, maybe because of the raw ones? Can anyone explain this?

You could be allergic. I would NOT eat raw almonds if they make your mouth feel weird.

Agree with jennyema... I think you could be experiencing allergy symptoms.

I've been eating them for a few weeks now and haven't really noticed any negative side-effects, except for the one I just mentioned. Do you think it's dangerous? I'll ask my doctor the next time I see him, and I'll stay away from the raw ones.

Do you think the roeasted ones are okay? I just ate one and it doesn't seem to provoke the same effect, I'm pretty sure it was just the raw ones.

I have a friend that is VERY allergic to raw almonds (and other nuts but particularly almonds) but not to roasted ones.

So I would avoid the raw ones and see if that solves the problem.

Nut allergies are common. I would avoid any kind of almond until I were tested. Today, a simple blood test will help an allergist to determine what one is allergic to. One doesn't have to submit to the patch testing anymore.

I didn't know that you knew Susan that well. Are you from NE Ohio?
