Whole30 -- pain and inflammation

Recommended Posts

Hello! I am on day 30. I have noticed quite a few NSV's, and my pain and inflammation/muscle soreness was getting better, but all of a sudden it is terrible. My lower back is incredibly stiff and hurts a LOT. Clearly it's not any of the things I've cut out (dairy, sugar, alcohol, gluten) and I'm beginning to think nightshades are the problem. I love tomatoes and I eat them a LOT. My question is -- should I continue on, and just eliminate nightshades along with everything else? Or should I do the reintroduction while also cutting out nightshades?

It's ultimately up to you, but I think you'll probably get better results if you can eliminate nightshades first, and when you're feeling better, then start reintroductions. It will probably take cutting out nightshades for at least a few days before you feel better, if they're what is causing the problem. If you reintroduce something while you're still in pain, and it turns out that one of the side effects that reintroduced item causes for you is joint pain, you won't necessarily notice that pain because of the pain you're already in.
