  1. Last week when I started my Whole30 and noticed all the information on nightshades, I kind of pushed it aside and figured naah not a problem for me. Well I think I've been proven wrong. Although my digestion/IBS is doing well - which I talk about more in this thread http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/3462-ibs-success-stories-advice/ and overall I'm feeling better rested and better in general I am still dealing with a fair amount of nasal congestion, sore throat, and fatigue. This happened in a big way many times over the summer (read 5 serious bouts lasting 3-5 days) that I thought I was getting colds/flus from overworking. However, the symptoms were never accompanied with fever, bodyaches or other flu like symptoms. Just the sore throat and painful ears usually on one side or both and clear phlegm (not colored or cloudy like with a cold or flu. Sorry for the details but it's important in figuring out the cause!). Important to note that I have hypothyroidism (treated since 2008) and despite my blood levels indicating it's well balanced, I have fatigue and cycle issues that seem to indicate otherwise. Last night I used a new to me Mrs. Dash spice blend and last night and today the right side of my throat and right ear canal or SO painful and I am phelgmy. Looked at the ingredients I saw that it contains black pepper and chili pepper high up on the list and then red bell pepper further down. Considering my dinner consisted of... Roasted Chicken Roasted sweet potato topped with coconut milk and Sauerkraut (from a local farm made with nothing but salt) I really think spice blend has got to the be cause of my symptoms. So nightshades are gone for a while to see if it gets rid of this really annoying and hurtful inflammation. My questions are... *Do you agree with my possible self-diagnosis? *What symptoms do you (other people that have nightshade issues) get when you eat them?? *Am I missing any nightshades on my list of things to avoid.... All peppers Tomatoes and Tomatillos Eggplants Potatoes but not sweet potatoes (thank goodness!) Paprika and other pepper based spices Hot sauce and salsa (I've heard blueberries as well but am unsure??) Thanks so much guys!
  2. I’m on day 8 and get a sore throat sometimes, off and on. It doesn’t get bad enough to be sickness and no other sickness symptoms have come, so I don’t think it’s illness. It started around day 3. I tried searching the site but couldn’t find it listed as a side effect of Whole30. Anyone else get this? I’m wondering if it’s a sign of detox, like the occasional stomach cramps.
  3. I started my whole 30 on Monday, 12/11. I felt great day 1 & 2. Day 3 was the first appearance of my sore throat. It seems to come and go with meals, but I can't figure out why or what is causing it. Wondering if it is food related, I have gone through allergy testing and I am allergic to alot of plants! I take an allergy pill every other day, and the sore throat shows up on the day I don't take my pill. I'm wondering if it's possibly an allergy to something I'm eating? Tempted to just start eliminating fruit and veggies that were not part of my diet pre-whole 30. I have always eaten a lot of veggies and fruits...but never had this problem until i started the whole 30.

    Any cough drops?

    Morning, Today is my day 1 but I'm recovering from vacation and have a sore swollen throat with a swollen lymph node in my neck. Are there any cough drops that are whole30 compliant? Thanks!
  5. I had fries at a restaurant today that I didn't know we're made in canola oil. I also had a salad, probably with canola, and a burger patty. I've had all of these things before. My husband and I did the whole 30 over February, and since then have adopted most of the whole30 rules/guidelines at home but we just minimize bad choices in public or with friends. Hence the fries. Almost immediately after I ate, roughly ten minutes, my throat got really itchy, sore and stiff when I swallow. I don't have any known allergies. My temperature feels ok, but I also feel a little achy. I don't know if I am getting sick or having a reaction. Keep in mind that I also have canola oil in my store bought dressing fairly often (3xweek). My hubby went to the grocery store Ina hurry and didn't realize how careful you have to be. Has anyone else had a throat issue like this with these foods? Or do you think it's possible even? It just seems food related because of the timing of the symptoms. Thanks!
