    If I eat anything with gluten I notice it in my hands the very next day. Swelling, joint pain, and carpal tunnel numbness at night. It's weird how quickly things can go south.

They take about 2 days to kick in, but the pain is just as bad as bell peppers. The cucumbers for me were a little trickier cuz you don't notice the trouble in joint function right away, so I was eating them more frequently. "Oh, cucumbers don't bug me. Let's have another salad tonight!"
    Needless to say, I'm kicking myself right now after coming to realize this. I have a race this weekend, and I'm still working last week's cucumbers out of my system.
    It's sad, cuz as a kid I would sneak into the fridge, steal an entire cucumber, and chow down. They've always been one of my top 5 favorite veggies.

    I would hate that! I love cucumbers. They're one of my absolute favorite veggies.

    That type of joint trouble is a classic symptom of spondylitis. If nightshades doesn't fix it I'd recommend trying going as starch free as you can and seeing if that helps. The site I linked to earlier in the thread has great info.

    If I eat grains, it seems like the next day I'm plagued with a general aches. If I go on a binge lasting more than a day, I get bloated, depressed and very lethargic.

    I recently noticed the connection with carpal tunnel numbness and my carb binges.

    I posted this a while ago but didn't get much response... so I'll try again

    Anyone who is or is trying to go nightshade-free have a suggestion for books/websites for recipes? I feel like ALL of my food is nightshade based and for the few days I tried to get rid of it everything was blah

    Thanks! I am starch free already, I can't think of anywhere starch might be creeping in, as well as completely grain free. So I'll be anxious to see if the slight knee pain diminishes with eliminating all the peppers and tomatoes. (And wouldnt you know...just came home from the store 2 nights ago with a pile of green and red peppers, and for the first time since primal I decided to add eggplant, so got 2 of them....oh well!)

    You can use iodine to test your veg and fruit for starch.
