A red bell pepper, like in chili or sausage and peppers. I can eat green ones, no problem. But whenever I have anything with red peppers in it I get a headache in the front of my head. Yet, everything I read online indicates that red peppers CURE headaches. What gives?

Migraines?

Various food can be a trigger for migraines, so it could be that way for regular headaches.

No, I hallucinate every time I eat mushrooms.

Read up on migraines. Find your triggers, and stay away from them.

It's far from a migrane. Just a dull headache up front. Makes me tired, too, it seems.

Red peppers can dilate your blood vessels...that could (maybe) cause a headache.


eta After a cursory check of google it seems that red pepper is being used as a treatment for headaches, so maybe no.

Exactly. I am dumbfounded how everyone else says it cures headaches, yet for me, it causes them. No big deal, I can just avoid them (mostly) but it is very curious.
