More info: Stomachaches after eating particular foods could be related to food intolerance, possibly to the chemical capsaicin in the spicy foods, pre-existing peptic ulcer disease or inflammation of esophagus or stomach,  a motility disorder of esophagus, disease of gallbladder or pancreas, or ibs, to name a few. it would be hard to diagnose the cause of stomachaches and diarrhea based just on this info.
