Well what do u do if u do not and have not eaten these foods and still have severe pain… even typing is painful? I take multi obits to help and even that's not workin… what should the people who have severe pain do? Any suggestion would be a blessing. Thanks in advance

I have just joined and am reading. i have arthritis and I know foods to avoid. Egg plant and Bell Peppers , paprika and any chilli increases pain and joint stiffness rather badly. Tomato is another that I seldom have and potatoes, I have to be careful as these also if I have too much result in pain and stiffness.
I was told to eliminate all of these nightshade foods and gradually reintroduce to my diet and keep a record of how each affected me. Some people have varied sensitivity to each of theese foods.

Please direct me to the scientific proof. I am doing research on my hypothesis that addiction and allergy are synonymous. Thank you. LisaMarie

I had read an article about taking night shades from your diet if you have arthrits so I did. I can't say it has eliminated all pain but there has been such an improvement. I no longer take 8 - 12 acetaminophen a day and only take two acetaminophen p.m. at night to help me sleep. Every once in a while I just have to have salsa. I do not miss white potatoes, I just substitute sweet potatoes instead. They even make sweet potato chips now so I can snack still. Oh the other night shade that was not mentioned here is the green pepper. Just exchange it for the red, orange or yellow and you still have yummy salads and other recipes.

I never realized that members of the nightshade family could contribute to arthritic pain! This article was really helpful, I'm going to try the experiment. I love tomatoes, and a lot of things have tomato in them, but it's worth the try. In the pepper family, it says peppercorns are okay. Does that mean ground black pepper is all right?

I know this. It makes me mad because I love spicy homemade salsa on EVERYTHING! My theory is allergy and addiction are synonymous. What ever I crave or love to eat is USUALLY what my body reacts poorly to.

The most popular nightshades are tomatoes, eggplant, and potatoes. Eliminating or minimizing these from your diet can minimizing some of your joint symptoms, especially inflammation.
