  1. Hi, Ive been on a gluten-free diet for about 5 years. Was feeling pretty good. But the past year or two I started getting some weird symptoms and couldnt figure out what they were from. Im beginning to suspect nightshades. Not very happy about that. Being celiac I live on peppers, tomatoes and potatoes! The other day I made stuffed pepper soup. That night I felt as though I was really retaining water all over. Especially hands, feet and lips. I also was extremely tired. Could fall asleep sitting up. This totally isnt me! I usually have trouble falling asleep. This isnt the first time Ive had these symtoms, but its the first time it clicked that it could be nightshades so im not sure what I ate the other times. I will be watching from now on. I also have been getting slight headaches. I usually never get headaches. At least not since I was a teenager and first started having seizures. Does this sound like a nightshade reaction to anyone who is familar with it? I do plan to take it out of my diet to see. But I have to admit Im very unhappy about that. But Ive also been getting more and more arthritic and its just getting to be too much. If nightshades have to go then thats what Ill do! Thanks in advance, Carla
