I am supposed to be finally approved for remicade but now the waiting game ...
Anyway - I am not sleeping well again ; I take ambien but cautiously since it makes my throat feel funny till I finallly pass out -
but with or with out the ambien I have terrible stomach pains when I am sleeping ...I wake myself and moan from the pain - I move but no matter what it still hurts , sometimes worse if I move ...eventually it (the severity of it ) goes away - then when I finally wake I feel naucaus - I am not a throweruper... so it just feels like I am on the "verge" ...
during the day I feel okay ...ocassionally a pain here or there ...but nothing like when I am sleeping -
how can I describe it ? the "sleeping pain" ....well , its like I am being pushed from the inside out ! pressure pushing and causing pain ...
2nd night with very little sleep
work is so stressful right now
I wish I could leave
got a trigger pt injection for my neck last night so at least I don't have that pain right now !
thanks for listening  :)

I really dont know what that could be but it sure doesnt sound too dang comfy for you nor is it letting you get the rest you need
Talk to your GI or family doc maybe they have some idea
As well I am sure othes will post that will be more helpful then I
Sorry you are going thru this

Hoping the waiting game for Remicade is over soon
Take care and keep us posted

I get exactly the same pain as what you’re describing, in the middle of the night. I get up anywhere between 3-5 times per night. Sometimes it’s better to just lie there and suffer the pain instead of getting up to go to the toilet. Takes a lot of will power for me to go through the pain though, it’s awful. I cant even touch the skin no my stomach without it making me wince…


I put it down to ‘nothing special’ in my case, just part of having Crohn’s disease.
