Spicy foods- burning in head!

Whenever I eat remotely spicy foods, ie curry or thai food, especially if I drink alcohol with them.. I get a burning feeling right through my head, it feels like the roof of my mouth is burning, right up to my scalp... is this normal?? Are there nerves connected from the roof of my mouth to the top of my head or is the burning feeling going right through my brain?? My nose also tends to run a lot as well..
Sometimes I get the same sensation just by drinking wine or even eating a strong mint!! The burning feeling right through my mouth to the top of my head is really uncomfortable and unnerving!! IS this normal? Does anyone else get this??

Thanks! Laura

Re: Spicy foods- burning in head!

I used to get really dizzy when I eat spicy food and i also feel the same when cutting onions. No ides what causes it but I am sure your symptoms are nothing to worry about. Different people react differently to things. The burning is just your body reacting to the natural chemicals in chillis etc
