Flax oil

I don't like eating fish or fish oil, so for awhile I was getting my fatty acids mostly from ground flaxseed. I decided to switch to flax oil recently and it is really bothering my stomach. Nothing too serious, just some dull pain and a nauseated feeling. I've obviously stopped eating it, but has anyone else had this reaction? Or, does anyone know what would cause it? Does this sound like a food allergy at all?

No, this does not sound like a food allergy at all. It may be just too much too soon. If you were eating groud-up flax seeds before, you were likely getting not nearly as much of the oil as you are from a concentrated supplement. Try taking it every other day or lowering the dose.

I have noticed that I have more of a problem when I don't precisely measure it out. I'll just be more careful for now on. Thanks for the advice.
