World’s hottest pepper leads to ‘thunderclap’ headache

August 30, 2019


world’s hottest pepper leads to thunderclap headache it’s a no-brainer
that eating a Carolina Reaper a chili pepper bred to be the hottest on earth
will come with consequences but for the first time consuming these peppers have
been linked to reversible cerebral vasospasm or reversible cerebral
vasoconstriction syndrome RCBS a temporary artery narrowing in the brain
often accompanied by agonizing thunderclap headaches
according to journal BMJ case reports such headaches are typically brief but
agonizing an unnamed man had to seek emergency care after participating in a
hot chili pepper eating contest left him with a storm of thunderclap headaches
for days the pain was excruciating enough to warrant tests for neurological
conditions which came back negative but a CT scan showed that several brain
arteries had constricted doctors concluded that the patient had
thunderclap headaches from our CBS which has previously been associated with
prescription and illegal drugs and now Carolina Reapers previously eating KN
pepper has been linked to sudden constriction of the coronary artery
given the development of symptoms immediately after exposure to a known
vasoactive substance it is plausible that our patient had RCBS secondary to
the Carolina Reaper right the authors the man symptoms cleared up by
themselves and a CT scan five weeks later showed that his affected arteries
had returned to their normal width what do you think about this please share
