Hello all.

Not too bad at present but, as it is Christmas, ate a tangerine yesterday and the day before. Not, seemingly, a good idea. Had awful trapped wind later in the day - is citrus fruit known for causing this problem?

Hope you all had as pleasant a Christmas as IBS et al will allow. Happy New Year to you also.

Yes, orange juice gives me gas. Not as bad as apple juice (which is also acidic, even though it's not a citris fruit), but bad enough that I almost never drink it. In fact, I almost never eat fruit, and when I do, it's cooked. I've cut out all raw fruit and fruit juice.

WHEN you consume something matters as well. I'm worse in the morning, so fruit isn't something I should have then; I MIGHT could tolerate orange juice in the evening.

I haven't been able to touch citrus fruits, especially those from the "Orange" family for many years without them causing a very bad IBS-D attack. I guess citrus is the harshest for our tempramental digestive systems. Only fruit I can really get away with are banana's. Aside from that I can't eat or drink any other kind without repercussions sad
