A man has been hospitalised after eating the world's hottest chilli.

The 34-year-old male from New York ate the Carolina Reaper which measures 1,569,300 Scoville Heat Units before he began to suffer "crushingly painful" headaches, dry heaves, and severe neck pain in the hours after.

When the pain became unbearable, he visited the hospital where a CT scan showed that several arteries in his brain had constricted. This led doctors to diagnose him with reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS).

The condition typically resolves in a few days but can lead to strokes in very severe cases.

This was the first time someone had experienced RCVS from eating a chilli pepper.
