Study: Hot foods have painful effects

Doctors have warned that eating hot chili may have painful effects beyond heartburn, based on the story of a 34-year-old man charged with pepper (Carolina Reaper), who was nicknamed the world’s most hot chili, suffered severe headaches, Short but severe lasted several days.

These seizures, called headaches, are a health emergency, as they may be a sign of brain hemorrhage, stroke or other life-threatening conditions.

Fortunately for the man, this pain resulted from cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome, a temporary narrowing of the arteries that connect blood to the brain. This syndrome usually does not have long-term effects, but it does
Sometimes lead to a stroke.

“Some substances, including capsicine, the active ingredient in chili, can cause narrowing of the arteries,” said Dr. Kolothanjan Gunasikaran of the Henry Ford System Center in Detroit and one of the doctors who treated the man.

He pointed out that other medical teams have already reported two cases of a heart attack because of the capsicine, one case of a patient taking capsules of pepper to lose weight and the other a patient was used to paste Capsisin to relieve pain.

Jonasikaran and his colleagues described how the patient began to feel dehydrated and burned, and for several days of severe headaches, he finally brought him to the emergency department of a hospital.

The tests showed no sign of a stroke or any serious causes of the painful headache and the man’s blood pressure was normal. CT scans were narrowed in four arterial arteries, suggesting cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome. A five-week CT scan showed the return of the arteries to normal.

“People should take caution when they eat hot peppers,” Jonasikaran said. “If they have these symptoms, they have to get medical attention.”
