When ingessting walnuts, is the asthma inflected symptons immediate, or can to symptons be delayed for a day or two. In other words, I have recently experienced asthma symptons and it occurred (1) during the pollen season and (2) when I started eating walnutes.
I ceased eating walnuts for a few days, but the asthma symptons continued, so I started eating walnuts again. I continue to have asthma symptons, and I believe the pollen should be a minimum factor after the growing and budding months of May and early June.
Food allergies symptoms usually begin immediately, seldom more than 2 hours after eating. Rarely, the symptoms may begin hours after eating the offending food.
If you develop symptoms shortly after eating a specific food, you may have a food allergy. Key symptoms include hives, hoarse voice, and wheezing. In severe reactions, you may have low blood pressure and blocked airways.
So in your case it would probably be the pollen or any other environmental substance which is causing this manifestation.
I suggest that you stop the walnuts for now.When the current episode subsides then you can think of trying them later.
Fod allergies are a danger, even small amounts can trigger of Anaphylaxis which is a medical emergency.
