I had an ulcer and somehow managed to block out the pain, didn't realize I was feeling pain when I ate chipotle pepper laced food. I tasted the pepper flakes and thought they had a mild smoky flavor, really no heat at all.

After I realized I had the ulcer, someone saw me walking around constantly wincing, asked me if I had a headache. I did have a kind of dull pain in my lower right abdomen, too far away from the appendix to be that. I happened to be at church when there was a group diagnosing phyical problems, and they said one person has an ulcer on the right side. That is exactly where it was. They had been diagnosing other people correctly.

After I got prayer for it, it got better, then finally went away. But I tasted flakes later from the same jar and they were like FIRE. At the MPD/DID comm. they said the alters can make you not feel pain.

I'm glad I didn't consciously suffer from most of it, but I wonder if I'd gotten help sooner if I could feel it.
