Do you get so tired after going to the bathroom that you need to go to bed.I don't know if its just me.But,if I have the luxury of sleeping all night without bathroom interruptions,and I get up.I will go and go and go.This is usually followed by a headache and being extremely tired.I go to bed a I actually do sleep.This is an almost daily occurance.I want my life back or at least some ''normalcy'' to it.Are any of you like this? Looking forward to your replies-Thank you, Anne

I don't have episodes like you describe. But I have never really been one to have to get up during the night to go, except to pee, now that I am getting older. But, there are times when I will be in the bathroom for a long time, or have to really rush to get there, and it really takes something out of me. After those periods, I don't feel like myself for quite a bit. My bed is literally about 7 feet away from my master bathroom, so if I can take the time, I will lay down for a while and rest. Other times I just have to plug through it. I have always thought that it was a sudden change in electrolytes, fluids or something like that. I just feel depleted and need to replenish my stores of something. After a half an hour or so I can usually function again. I know I am having a really bad day if it happens more than once, cause it is usually a rare thing for me.

I don't wake up in the night for bm's too often, mostly like Zanne just to pee. But if I have a bad poop day, I will need to lay down for a bit with my heating pad to help quiet things down. Not necessarily have to sleep, but do have to lay down sometimes. Hugs!

I get tired (sometimes extremely) after "d" episodes, especially if they are very watery and frequent. I will usually nap anytime I can fit one in, or else rest on the couch.

When my pain was really bad along with bloody Ds, I passed out in the bathroom at midnight for a few hours.

Oh, I've totally dozed on the can in the wee hours of the night, never passed out though. That is probably not a good thing, collegestudent. Hope that doesn't happen often.

I don't really believe my life will ever be "normal" again. Yes, I do need a nap, or at least rest time on my poopy days. I wonder if there is something to the electrolyte imbalance possibility? I may try something like Gatorade to see if I notice any difference.
I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I'm okay now but during that time I felt like my pain was literally at 9 out of 10, I think I couldn't handle it and I wasn't on any pain meds. Should have taken codeine or something.

Nope I just bring a pillow with me and sleep on the throne with my head on the pillow against the wall. Trust me, it works when you have to spend so much time in the bathroom.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

When it's particularly bad, I often get extremely tired after a BM. It's a lot of work. I don't usually fall asleep though, I'm pretty good at staying awake.
Diagnosed with Crohn's late December 2004. Getting by.

Actually last nite and today I have been feeling pretty crappy.  Went to the bathroom so much that I am exhausted and have a headache.  Does anyone ever pass out from the pain.  Sometime I break out into a sweat and pass out while trying to have a BM.  My doc said its a basel response?  Hope I'm not alone on that...Share with me if you have ever experienced passing out..
Thanks

Hi happy2day,Although I've never fainted/passed out,but I do get so exhausted that as mentioned in my post I sleep and sleep.I do get headaches.As HW member SeriouslyRelaxed mentioned it probably has something to do with the electrolytes being out of whack.Take care and please have this thoroughly checked out
Today the pain is through the roof.And I'm just waiting on my hubby to head out to the hospital this evening.Its been a hard week but an especially hard day.I started ''going'' at 7 A.M. and just now its subsiding its 8:08 p.m..But there is blood,and a truck load of pain,I'm just exhausted

After a long bout of D in a public bathroom (my favorite experience of the day . . . not!), I sometimes am shocked when I see myself in the mirror. My face will be incredibly pale, with the skin over my cheekbones a deep pinkish red. The mirror reflects the stress and exhaustion of losing so much fluid and straining so hard. And whether you nap or not, it takes a while to recover.

I don't have Crohn's, but I did get really sick from bad food and when I went to the bathroom, the runs, I fainted. I went to the hospital after that because I injured my head (40 stitches). While there, I fainted again. They kept me at the hospital to observe me. I underwent all sorts of heart tests and was under constant monitoring. No problem was found. Two cardiologists are telling me that I should get a pacemaker to prevent this low heart rate (bradycardia) in the future so that I don't faint. I'm going to a electo cardiologist specialist soon to perform even more tests. Since getting back from the hospital, each time I have a bowel movement, I feel really tired. An have to eat and drink to get my energy back. I don't know what I originally got that hurt my digestive system so badly, but it seems to have caused some damage. In the hospital, I was given some powerful anitbiotics and anitvirals for my digestive system (cipro and flagemon?)...can't remember the antibiotic name right now. Ever since, I feel very tired after a bowel movement. I recover with tea and other food...but it takes time.

Yesterday, the problem went away. You are right about the digestion. I do take a digestive enzyme from Swanson Thant works great. I think my problem was my body needing extran nutrients to heal, which it has.

every morning like clock work i wake up in pain and run to the throne,, between 4A.M.---6:00A.M. then go back to bed then around an hour later, right back to the toilet,, this goes on about 3 to 6 times in the morning before i eat or drink anything.. then no matter what I eat or drink around 2-3 hours later I have to go again thats the daily routine no matter how much or how little i eat, thats what happens after 3 bowel resectstion`s and losing all my sigmoid colon and half my rectum, and what ever else they did in my first 2 resections..I drink watered down power- -ade to help restore my lost electrolytes.. I gave up all fried foods, no fast food, for 4--years now, no loss there, even with my pain meds I still go every morning and some times it`ll start at 9--10:oo.P.M. at night and that last a couple of hours,, until i completley empty out..... my remaining transverse, and whats left of my descending colon.. some times it helps to cut down on the amount of liquids in the evening.. hope things get back to a normal, that you can deal with.... my doc`s can only figure it`s from all the damage and all in there.. over the years of flare--ups.....scar tissue, adhesions..
