I always had pain at night. I was great in the morning and through out the day but my pain would start as soon as I would sit down for dinner. Very weird. Started to think it was psychological. I tried taking my meds at different times of the day, tried not eating dinner, tried not eating lunch, everything. Nothing really helped. I'm good now because of the bowel resection I just had but I don't wish that upon your daugther. You just have to keep trying new things to see what works. Good luck!!!
