I have had kind of IBS for some time. When I get up in morning, I go to toilet and everything is fine. Later I get urge to go again to open bowels. If I do that then fo another 2 hours I get burning feeling and want to go pass water again and again. I feel this is brought on when I eat citrus fruit.
I must mention that seriously abused citrus fruit for about 2 decades. I used to overdose on clementines (small oranges) and mangoes.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Irritable bowel needs diet and lifestyle adjustments. Too much oranges and mangoes might have played a role. Maintain Good balanced diet and lifestyle with more fiber and fluids and less dairy and spices will help. Visit our IBS health center for further guidance.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
