[QUOTE=jammies;567332]Yes - nightshades are a huge issue for me. I have severe arthritis and did a lectin free version of primal to start. You eliminate all the high lectin groups for a period of time and then if/when your joint pain has improved you add one group in at a time to see what the trouble group is. It took about 5 days nightshade free to feel a difference for me but I continued to improve for at least a month or two. Be careful though - nightshades are hidden everywhere! So when you do a trial you have to be a lunatic about reading labels, etc until you get the hang of it. Paprika is hidden in just about everything But it really is worth it.
I think my worst problem was potatoes. Potato starch is also hidden in many things (shredded cheese, many dressings) also known as modified food starch. I noticed a huge improvement w/in 3 days. This was pre-primal and avoiding nightshades only. I used to ache w/ storms also but now since primal and nighshade free, I rarely have bad days.
