So I've come to my own conclusion on this . . . it seems as though every morning I wake up and feel pretty darn good.  Then I wake up my bowels by taking a drink or eating something.  That's when the stomach pain begins.  It makes me wonder if I ought to just stay quiet and let my bowels sleep. 
 
Not really looking for answers, just giving a little food for thought and would welcome your comments if you care to share any.

Weird, my stomach is always most upset and active first thing in the morning when I wake up. Then once I start to feed it it calms down a bit.  I have like 2-5 BMs within the first 3 hours Im awake.

Surgeries:2 Bowel Resections, Gallbladder Removed.
Current Meds: Imuran 50mg, Vitamin B12 (injection), D, and C tablets. Fish Oil Tablets, Cats Claw, Slippery Elm, and Reishi.

ISF - I'm the same. If I have to be somewhere early in the morning I won't even take my morning meds. That first sip of water gets me going. If I put nothing in, I don't have the urge. I usually get up and dressed, then get to work, then eat and take my meds, poop, and then start my work lol.  It was the only way I could handle my 45 minute commute.  Now that I moved it should be easier.


27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I take xanax prn for situational anxiety (aka no easy bathroom access).

Glad to hear I'm not alone.  I have the exact same routine.  Good thing I work in clinic complete with a bathroom that's really, really close.

I may have to try going without food and water for a morning to see what happens. I notice that my stomach is really active after I wake up, but I have to have walked to the living room and sat down first. I need get up all of a sudden after that.

Yep, mornings are worst for me, too. I've had morning sickness since I was a teen, two decades before the Crohn's was diagnosed, and still haven't given birth. Fortunately, my daughter's birth mother did that for me, and I am so proud of her and my three grandchildren
Take care. Lois
