Hey everyone,
I hope im not bothering anyone, but i dont know where else to ask these questions and you all seem very well informed. I was sleeping very well last night, and turned over on my side, and actually thought i was going to pass gas, but worse, i went some in my jammies, jumped out of bed grabbed undies and clean jammies and went to bathroom. I went but it was like a milk shake consistancy. Okay, this is my question. I read on several websites on the net, that having this happen at night is not IBS? That i guess is what im asking, has anyone else done this? It kind of scared me when i read it, cause thats what ive been told i have!! ibs-d. I had some gas before i went to bed, but didnt feel the urge to go to the bathroom. This crap freaks me out!!!  Its so
unnerving to know what to do!!! I havent gone anymore today, and i ate breakfast and chicken noodle soup for lunch. I just dont get this??? OH, i hadnt had to go to the bathroom in a couple of days before this either, so i dont know what happened, any help would be great!!!  Thanks so much eyes   Peppertree

Hey Peppertree, what a bummer about your PJs.  Must be something in the air; I also woke up a couple times during the night last night with the big D.  Never pleasant.  It's a tough call, whether IBS gets you up at night.  Some people on this board experience the nocturnal bliss and others don't, usually depending on what they eat.  Have you had all the tests (colonoscopy, etc.)?

hey sarita,
Yes, i have had a colonscopy, and stools tests and all that done. It isnt the first time its happened to me. But it usually gives me warning of some kind. It could be cause i ate tacos last night. I really dont know, but i appreciate your answering sarita. Take care:)

I think waking in the middle of the night with D is usually attributed to gall bladder problems, but that is a very specific kind of D and has accompanying pain, etc., so it's fairly recognizable. Several people here over the months have complained of waking up in the middle of the night needing to go, so I think you're probably still in the realm of "normal" IBS.

I took a Vitamin C pill weekend before last to try and stave off a cold I was coming down with and it gave me D. Not in the middle of the night, but while I was on the toilet peeing, I thought I might poot as well and I had a bowel movement instead. So certainly you might have eaten or taken something that made you have a poot turn into a poo.

I think a good rule of thumb would be if you wake up in the middle of the night feeling like you need to pass gas, get on the toilet before you try to do it. Apparently people will fart in their sleep and never know it. If you get woken up, then something else is going on.

Funny! I woke up at 1 am needing to go D too. When I eat large amounts of sugary candy, I usually get D. I knew better than to sneak into my step-daughters gummy worms. I guess that's my punishment. I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it happens to you all the time.
