Interestingly, she found later on that eating a capsaicin-rich diet (capsaicin is what puts the hot in hot peppers) completely abolishes any analgesic effect.

I remember hearing about the studies of women who ate diets high in capsaicin experiencing more pain in labor and my heart fell. You'd think that anyone who could handle that much capsaicin would have a higher pain threshold. Crap!

Ooh! I wonder: if someone who was given analgesic ate a sithload of spicy food, would the pain return? Does it "abolish any analgesic effect" in all cases or just a grapefruit squeezing through a pencil-sized hole?
