Migraines and chili: There are some small studies looking at the effects of capsaicin on controlling the pain associated with migraines. Some of these studies are favorable, but clinicians favor larger, blinded studies in which both the treating physician and patient are unaware of the treatment. That bar has not been reached yet. Please discuss with your physician.
