  • Spicy poop

    So without trying to be too graphic, whenever I eat something spicy like jalapenos, or hot buffalo wings, five to six hours later I'll get painful stomache cramps. Almost like I can feel my intestines wringing out like a wet towel. Then I'll have a burning poop that feels very acidic like. Generally the matter in the toilet looks more like food than a normal BM.

    So I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's a certain ingredient, amount that can be causing this. For instance, I eat some franks red hot buffalo sauce with breakfast occasionally and it never bothers me. But today I had a grilled chicken salad from buffalo wild wings with a small drizzle of their mango habenero sauce and it tore me up.

    I like spicy foods but I'm wondering if this is normal or should I avoid them due to my reaction?

    It's pretty common to have that kind of reaction to spicy food, though why it would only happen with certain peppers and not others is beyond me--maybe you just have an allergy to certain types or something. I wouldn't worry about avoiding anything that doesn't specifically give you problems.

      My guess is that you are sensitive to the peppers - capiscum.
      You may be more sensitive to some varieties as opposed to others.

      What you are describing is very similar (not exactly what happens at the back end though) to what happens to me if eat too much of it too. Peppers are always the common denominator for me, even sweet peppers.

        Also known in some circles as "Ring of Fire".

        Pretty common for many after eating a lot of hot peppers.

          There's a restaurant in Eugene, OR called Ring of Fire. Used to crack me up every time I drove by.

            So should I try to avoid eating them then? My main concern is that it feels like stomache acid makes it's way down there, and if so that can't be good right?

              It's not stomach acid making its way down there. It's the hot chili peppers making their way down there. Rub a jalapeno on your butt. It's the same thing. Happens to me, too. I just try to see it as a cheap thrill.

                  Yeah, dont worry about it. It's very normal, and not harmful to your body, besides a little discomfort.

                  Enjoy the spicey food knowing the consequences In my opinion, if the food didn't cause "hot butt" then it wasn't hot enough.

                    Yup. Try smaller amounts and also regular sweet peppers. If you get cramping and gas while eating mildly spicy or eating sweet peppers then you are probably sensitive to them and then you should avoid them, unless you don't care about the after effects.

                    I have found that roasted sweet peppers don't bother me as much.

                      Sting Ring.... ah the beauty of Mexican food. Any time I take down a lot of pickled jalapenos, my stomach starts doing backflips and results in the "sting ring".
