I think it's POTATOES :o:blink::angry: So, now I need to eliminate them and see how I do. Can't believe I can be allergic to my two favourite foods - potatoes and chocolate :o

I am going to eliminate all nightshades, as I'm pretty sure they all give me stomach symptoms.

I'm going to immerse myself in my work (other people's problems!) so that I don't get hysterical....

See ya later!

OH NO! Not the potatoes and chocolate!!!! I'm with you, that will be hard... BUT, you are doing what you have to to be healthy and I'm proud of you! (like that matters LOL) anyway, big ol hugs and hang in there, and hopefully you've found the answer to your mystery.

So sorry to hear that. I don't think I tolerate potatoes well either, but they don't bother me that much so I'm not willing to give them up. I also have a tough time with chocolate. It is sad but hopefully it will make you feel better.

Hi Susie,

Sad news, no getting around it--but if you're right, and you begin to feel better without them then it won't be so hard.

I've been like that with various foods that I've eliminated--I *really* did not want to give them up but feeling better always wins out in the end :D

And who knows? Maybe if you stay away from the offender for 6 months or so, you could then try small amounts again, and have a taste sometimes. Gotta think positive ;)

I cut out the nightshades five years ago, and I find that I can handle having them about once a month now. But if I eat them two days in a row I'll get digestive problems.

But it's almost harder to eat them one day, and not to be able to keep eating them, than to just not bother with them at all. Potatoes used to be my favourite food (followed by German rye bread), which figures, of course.

Well glad you think you've found the culprit-but commiserations on the chocolate...... :o

Keep us posted how it goes! :)

:lol: Thanks for the support everyone :) I am actually quite excited in a strange sort of a way, cos very few of my symptoms have actually got better since going gluten-free (10 mths ago), even though I've been so very careful. So it's actually great to be finally geting somewhere. It also gives me more incentive to do the dreaded elimination diet thing :rolleyes: If I can work out how to do it, I'll blog my elimination experience (yuck! sorry, no pun intended! ). It is also brilliant to be somewhere where others understand this crazy thing of normal, supposedly healthy food making us ill.

You'll find your way around it! I enjoy potatoes, but hardly ever have them. Time to check out more fun options. Hopefully, other root vegetables are an option - like carrots, turnips, rutabegas, and so on.

Well, I've been nightshade free for 2 whole days ;) and I think I may be on the right track. Only 1 hive yesterday (a large one) and one small one today. And I've had definite withdrawal symptoms (headache & brain fog). Can't believe I'm doing a potato detox :lol: I am also at last getting round to simplifying my diet, heading for an elimination diet, and am almost processed food free. Hooray! I'm seeing my GP next week and can't wait to tell him my progress...

Great to hear you're doing better.. or at least not so itchy. :)
