I am sure I spelled that wrong, but I'm wondering if any know is familiar with this as an intolerance or allergy? I have inflammatory problems, and just gave tomatoes/bell peppers up and seem to be doing better, and they say it can be nightshade but I also understand bell peppers have capsacin? and maybe that's actually my problem.

I have an allergy to Capsicum (Cayenne Peppers). If it's in topical ointment, I get chemical burns and if I ingest them they cause severe abdominal pain. Bell peppers actually have a recessive gene that eliminates capsicum. What sort of symptoms are you having?

After my last whip lash type injury, my arms started burning, and I have a sensitiviy in the skin that comes and goes-feels like sunburn. I found a good definition, called thermo allodynia.
I just quit nightshade, but am like I said quitting garlic too. Really want it gone for good.

Have you ever had an MRI? I had whiplash too about 15 years ago and since then I have had a lot of neck and upper back issues. One of those things that was bothering me was the burn like feeling. Turns out that I had two bulging discs in my neck that was irritating a nerve.
