I totally agree with most guys who have commented above. I don't think spicy food can cause back pain, well I've never heard of that. But indigestion does cause stomach and possibly back pain. When the spicy food you took was not digested properly then it could strain the gall bladder or your pelvic area and you end up experiencing back pain. There is also a chance that your sitting posture when eating was poor and caused your back pain. However, if the pain persists for a while then it is important to have it checked immediately to know the exact cause of the pain.

I don't think spicy food could directly affect your back. However, it is possible that your gallbladder or other organs involved with digestion are being affected. You can often feel pain caused by this in your back. You should see a doctor to discuss a diagnosis and possible lifestyle changes.

Best of luck!

I don't think that eating spicy food will lead to back pain, but it may be other reasons like your posture while you eat or what you do afterward. Directly, spicy food won't lead to back pain. Perhaps you are experiencing some form of indigestion?

Like previous posters have replied, it's very unlikely that the spicy food has anything to do with your back pain. Fast foods reek havoc on your digestive system as can trigger an inflammatory response in the body. This can lead to swelling and pain in various places in the body. Cutting back on highly processed/ fast foods would be a good first step. Make sure to drink plenty of water and foods like berries, pineapple, ginger, turmeric, and garlic are good natural anti-inflammatories. If you are having issues with extreme pain after eating, I would suggest you consult your physician to find out what's going on.

It was believed that spicy foods or stress could lead to peptic ulcers And it can cause referred pain in your back. Might be poor posture or kidney problem. Just better see a doctor make sure.
