Shenanigans to your shenanigans

SHENANIGANS TO YOUR POST. Think before posting. It will save you time and me a headache.
. Do you know how hard it is to actually chew every single damn flax seed you put on a salad or whatever. Check your shits the next time you eat a bunch and see how many make their way through whole.
And one of the points of of grinding them (aside from nutrition of course) is to avoid cooking them
, because it is the heat that creates the free radicals. Though the occasional light toasting probably won't kill anyone.
It should be noted that it is better to buy the seeds whole and grind them as you use them, rather than buying already ground meal, as buying the meal has it's own issues.
As to your headache, the most likely culprit is dehydration, probably due to not taking in water after the diarrhea you spewed out at me.
Drink a tall glass of H20, close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths, and your headache will probably go away.
Happy I was able to teach you something today.
