Is this normal? Whenever I eat hot food like Buffalo chicken then I end up getting a stomach ache. Is there a way to fight that? I try to eat some yogurt afterwards, but without much success.

Can hot food cause or irritate ulcers and promote blood showing up in one's stool?

Do you have an ulcer and blood in your stool?

I don't know about ulcers. I don't think I have them. I never had severe stomach pain. I only get a little bit of blood in stool when I eat ton of hot food (like 15 hot buffalo wings). I do get stomach ache from hot food, but its not severe. Its more like a stomach burning sensation (not heartburn though!) + some pain in lower half of abdomen.

I also have some chronic pain and I try to go on and off Ibuprofen as needed. I know it can cause ulcers, but I don't know if I have any. Don't you need a special procedure (tube up your as*) to find out if you have ulcers? I also think they won't do it unless there are symptoms.

I would go see a doctor and not ask a forum which has a high percentage of teenagers...

Agreed, this sounds like a problem beyond the scope of what anyone here can help you with.

Well, a ulcer usually doesn't cause bright red blood in the stool. Hemorrhoids are the most common cause of that, and they may be related to constipation secondary to a low fiber diet (or even single meal). However, if you are having chronic abdominal pain (with or without BRBPR), you should see a physician.

You're more than welcome to, I'm sure he would appreciate it. That's between you and him. I was merely pointing out that if it were me, I would be hesitant to accept medical advice regarding an issue as serious as this from someone whose credentials I know nothing about, and who has never met me in person and knows knowing of my history. In no way am I posing an individual attack on you, or your knowledge - just encouraging the OP to exercise caution on medical advice received over the internet.

^ I was gonna say almost the same thing since I have experience with such issues. I was also going to ask if you have liver issues.

You could be on your way to ulcerative colitis, crohn's disease, etc. Go see a doctor.
