Re: Numb tongue from vegetables
Eggplant definitely makes my stomach burn, but it is somewhat different than an acid reflux burning feeling. It seems to cause my mouth, lips, etc. to tingle in an unpleasant way and makes my gums itchy. I'm not sure if that is because I've always cooked eggplant with olive oil. I have a bad reaction to all fruit - get dermatitis, itchy, acid-like feeling, fatigue, red colored rash on face, suddenly dry skin, etc. I'd never pieced together before that olive's are a fruit, too. Duh! I can not eat garlic, onions, peppers, tomatoes. I'm still figuring other stuff out. Many of these are called nightshade vegetables. I've read that many people can not eat these foods.
