The doctor who reviewed his case has warned anyone eating hot chilli peppers to seek medical attention immediately if they experience sudden onset headaches. They only lasted a few seconds each, but the pain was so severe he went to the ER. The diagnosis was backed up by a scan five weeks later showing the arteries had returned to normal.
It's a no-brainer that eating a Carolina Reaper, a chili pepper bred to be the hottest on earth, will come with consequences.
The Carolina Reaper was reconfirmed by Guinness following a stringent round of lab tests, as well as stiff competition from other competitors.
He said RCVS can occur without an identifiable cause, as an idiosyncratic reaction to certain medications (ergotamine, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, alpha- sympathomimetic decongestants and triptans) or secondary to an illicit drug (cocaine, amphetamines and ecstasy).

But in this instance, the pepper's spiciness caused the blood vessels supplying his brain to temporarily thin, producing the same painful outcome.
Dr Kulothungan Gunasekaran, at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, who wrote the report, said people need to be aware of these risks, if eating the chilli.
He noted that other teams have already reported two cases of heart attack apparently due to capsaicin, one in a patient taking cayenne pepper capsules for weight loss and another in a patient using a capsaicin patch to treat pain.
The Carolina Reaper definitely isn't your average chili pepper - it's the hottest chili pepper on the planet.
The man's symptoms cleared up by themselves. He achieved this accomplishment by consuming 120 grams of the pepper in 60 seconds at the Arizona Hot Sauce Expo in November 2016.
Gunasekaran also said that this is the first time that chili pepper has been related to RCVS.
The patient was fine, with no lingering damage, but thunderclap headaches are not to be dismissed.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
