Tingling On The Face After Consuming Spicy Food?
In the afternoon, after giving birth 2 months I ate spicy food but after eating spicy my face tingled, why is that?
Tingling or paresthesias is a condition where some of the sense of touch or sensory system of a person's body is lost. Tingling is usually associated with nervous disorders, which can occur when the nervous system is disturbed by the supply of nutrients and oxygen, for example in conditions where there is obstruction of blood flow to certain parts of the body, or due to damage to the nervous system itself. Some conditions that can cause a tingling sensation include:
diabetes with neurological complications, stroke or tumor, multiple sclerosis, poisoning with certain substances such as mercury, arsenic, deficiency of nerve vitamins B1, B6, and B12, stress or anxiety, maintaining a certain posture for a long time. In your case, spicy food usually does not cause tingling. But the sensation of spiciness, often spreads so widely in the oral cavity, that the face looks like a tingling sensation. This condition usually improves when the spicy taste slowly disappears. However, do not hesitate to check your condition if the complaints do not improve. Here we attach an article about tingling. Hope it is useful.
