Is it normal to fear your next bowel movement?

Is it normal to fear your next bowel movement after you've eaten something really spicy? Last night I ate jalapeño and pineapple chicken with a mango and habanero sauce. It was amazing, and delicious for the first half, but the second half was so spicy that I almost tapped out... but then I remembered that I'm from Houston, Texas which is the home of many fine restaurants that serve delicious, hot and spicy cuisine from all over the world. After I finished my spicy chicken adventure I felt for a while as if I was having a reaction, because my skin was burning, but now I think it just may have been that I had some small amount of oils from the jalapeño under my fingernails after having washed my hands.

Anyway, is it normal be afraid of pooping after eating such food?
