started taking chia seed with my smoothies and had the most tremendous headache. checked side effects on internet and with my doctor found that it didn't go with my blood thinner.

1 tsp caused a severe food allergy reaction. I would caution anyone with food allergies to proceed with caution. My diagnosed allergies are dairy, egg, peanuts, chicken, pork, soy and oranges. The reaction was within 2 hrs if ingestion and the absolute only new thing in my diet for weeks For me it's a no go!

Comment:
Started having chest pain after starting chia, but it was also after shoulder surgery. I am stopping the chia because I am running out of options. Been to er and doc and going to doc again today. Not convinced its the chia and plan on trying it again with lower amounts when I get this pain under control.
