Dear Clay
If you develop stomach pains and vomiting when you eat all types of nuts (i.e. so-called tree nuts), except peanuts, then it is probably that you are allergic to nuts. However, it is always a good idea to have yourself tested for this type of allergy, so please ask your medical doctor to arrange for you to have the necessary tests. Nuts allergies can be life-threatening, so it is important to know if this is a true allergy, if you may also have related allergies and if you need to carry prophylactic medications (antihistamines, etc) at all times. So do see your dr can discuss this reaction with him/her and ask to be tested.
Best regards
