I had very hot burning sensation when I pass stool. I am having constipation also and its semi liquid and very less in amount. I had spicey food last.

Hot food to blame: Almost everyone has had that experience after eating unusual or spicy foods. It is typically self-limited and passes after a day or two. This would usually be associated with loose stool (I'm confused by you saying you are constipated and have semi-liquid stool). If burning persists, or you have rectal bleeding or mucus you should seek medical attention as this could be early proctitis/colitis. ...Read more

Can eating spicy foods such as very hot salsa really cause/make you more likely to have bad dreams or is that an old wives' tale?

It is possible: Depending on when spicy foods are consumed, it is possible to affect dreams. If consumed near bedtime (in fact consuming significant portions of most foods near bedtime) can affect dreams. This effect likely stems from physiological digestive processes and the influence of spicy food on the body.

How are kidneys damaged? Can it be by foods, such as spicy foods (hot cheetos)? Can they be damaged by certain activities you do? Such as intercourse?

None of that: Usual causes include poorly controlled diabetes, hypertension, and blood vessel disease caused by aging and cholesterol deposits. Also, hereditary disease including polycystic disease. Also, stones that could block the kidneys and tumors are to be considered. Cheetos has much salt that could aggravate blood pressure. Intercourse could cause recurrent urine infections but none hurts kidney directly. ...Read more

While I'm eating sometimes I start feeling sick or I get really hot and start sweating. This is with any big meal I have not spicy foods?

Eating & sweating: It is not entirely unusual to sweat when you are eating. Your body undergoes physiologic changes when start digesting food.

Any consistant stomach "upset" should be evaluated soon. ...Read more

Constipated, so I ate fiber foods lastnight. Woke up with pain in stomach but I couldn't go. Shortened breath, hot and almost fainted, very nauseous.?

Constipated, so I ate fiber foods lastnight. Woke up with pain in stomach but I couldn't go. Shortened breath, hot and almost fainted, very nauseous.?

It's the Fiber!: Since you are constipated, the fiber you ate is absorbing water, the bowel is swelling, and you are nauseous and sweating- that is a normal reaction! Try relieving the obstruction from below by either using a suppository, or giving yourself a (i.e.: Fleet's) enema. Once the constipation is relieved, you can resume dietary fiber without the side effects you're experiencing. Drink plenty of water. ...Read more
