For the past 5 days I've been using 1/8 to 1/10 of a teaspoon of quite hot Cayenne Pepper around 3 times per day.
I do this because I've read it is good for the kind of health problems I've been having.
I kind of like the results of the Cayenne Pepper, and I believe that it is good for health in general...
BUT everytime in the evening when it is "toilet time"...
I have these painful bowel movements that make me feel quite sick.
I'm sorry for going into details, but very liquid feces literally flies out at high speed.
After about 10 to 15 minutes of feeling sick while I'm defecating,
I'm back to normal. During the day i have absolutely no pain or discomfort.
The only discomfort i feel is when I go on the potty in the evening.
So my question is:
Is my extreme reaction to cayenne pepper normal,
or does this indicate I have some underlying intestinal problem of sorts?
Before starting to take cayenne pepper my "potty visits" were absolutely normal,
but I would love to continue to take cayenne pepper.
