Spicy foods = health risk?

Asked by deaddolly (3406points) September 23rd, 2008

My daughter’s boyfriend was having bad stomach problems and had to be rushed to the ER. They admitted him and he was told to cut out all spicy foods. The doctor gave an example of jalapeno peppers…the peppers have little hairs on them that act like barbed wire going down your esphogus.
Seems her boyfriends esphogus was ripped to shreds. He’d eat peppers by the jar full. He’d also drink, which made everything worse. Has any one ever heard of this?
