I'm thinking you have a more severe case.
BTW the only nightshades I can remember are tomatoes and eggplant - try to keep an Italian away from them.
A lot depends on the Dr. but we usually tell the patient to try a little of whatever your worried about and if no symptoms, fine, just don't eat bunches of it....kinda like we do with diverticulosis now too...we've learned that some people do fine with certain thnigs and others have a terrible time with them....
