i would guess that the only spices that would be nightshades would be peppers... but i really dont know enough.

i hope you're ok with Turmeric- it is like the most miraculous spice on earth- it's a million times more potent as an antioxidant than any vitamins, and it's anticarcinogenic.. and yummy

Paprika is within the nightshade family, yes. So are potatoes, tomatoes, chili peppers, bell peppers, jimson weed, petunias, and tobacco. The family name is Solanaceae.

Turmeric is a relative of ginger, within the same ginger family, Zingerberaceae. Not in the nightshade family.

Was this enough of an answer?

after seeing your answer I started searching with the family name and found my "offender " ,, Eggplant <_< I am having a reaction that I normally have when ingesting nightshades and couldnt pinpoint what I was reacting to..

Thanks :)
