I usually have joint pain with white potatoes and other nightshades, will peeling stop this? And are the toxins in the thin skin itself , or in the thin layer of flesh underneath that's prized for having most of the nutrients in the potato, because when I boil them, I can get the thin skin off while keeping that layer of nutrient rich flesh, but I'm worried that I'm not getting rid of all of the nightshade properties. So, will peeling potatoes get rid of the joint pain that nightshades give me, and do I have to peel them before cooking to get rid of the skin and nutrient rich flesh layer underneath, or can I just take the skin off after cooking

If you have joint pain then avoid them, why mess with it? Move on to other foods like sweet potatoes. Purple sweet potatoes baked or microwaved and then fried in butter or coconut oil are far more flavorful than white potatoes, at least for me.
