Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Some people spicy foods can cause irritation to the lining of your stomach or intestine causing food to move through quickly. Usually spicy food, alcohol, coffee are the common irritants.

I would suggest you avoid or reduce the spices in your food. You can try taking curds or buttermilk after eating or drinking herbal tea. This reduces the irritation. Drink lots of water and eat healthy fruits and vegetables. Deep breathing exercises also help relieve stress.

I hope this answered your query.
