to provide a bit of context, here's what's been going on with me of late:

  • intense intractable sharp abdominal pain (mostly around the navel) as well as classic IBS-C symptoms
  • trying botox injections and topical painkillers but no success
  • had appendectomy a couple of months ago and appendix was found to be adhered to the colon. Thought that was the cause but no, pain came back.
  • went on the SCD and only lasted 2 weeks since I felt increasingly worse - fatigue, depression, pain, lethargy
  • came off SCD and have been feeling a lot better for ~ 6 days. I've not felt "OK" for 6 days for over 20 years to my knowledge.

So naturally I'm worried/concerned/terrified/curious as to why I'm feeling OK. It occurred to me that, via the SCD, I avoided all nightshades (tomato, potato, peppers, eggplant/aubergine etc.) pretty much. And it turns out I've also avoided them this last 6 days. Enough rambling, onto my question!

Does anyone else definitely have trouble with nightshade veggies? If so, which ones? how much is a trigger? is the negative reaction proportional to the portion size? what tricks or tips do you have? is they less bothersome the longer you cook them? any good nightshade resources out there (other than the top Google hits) ?

Many thanks, hope you're all doing as well as possible,
