Iím assuming you are using ground flaxseed. If you are ingesting them whole they wonít be digested and donít provide any benefit. Yes, you would have to introduce the ground flaxseed in small amounts and build up. I also would suggest to make sure you are drinking plenty of water as that helps with the soluable fibre from the flaxseed. Hope you can figure out how to eat it without the discomfort.
