I was wondering if anyone tends to have a certain time of the day where you find you have this occur more common than others? I tend to wake up ok...I eat a light lunch and maybe have some gas and bloating but night is the worst for me. It doesnt seem to happen immediatly following eating but an hour to 3 after dinner. The pain from it is intense.

I feel my best when I first get out of bed. Then ok through the afternoon which is when I tend to get really tired and at times can barely hold my eyes open. I usually feel my worst after dinner and before bed. I guess it's just from eating all day.
~Never officially diagnosed~
Appendectomy in 2001. Appendix perforated & gangrenous. Had pain off and on for 3 years prior. This is where all my trouble started.
Hospitalized in August 2005 with a bowel obstruction.
Colonoscopy showed definite colitis, SBFT showed narrowing of the Ileum and a possible fistula.
Both tests came back as consistent with CD.
2nd bowel obstruction February 2008. Got through it at home.
Currently not on CD meds. Following a low~residue diet and taking fish oil daily and Align probiotics daily.

Yep, i agree totally.  Getting up is the best time of the day for me.  From then on, depending what i eat it's all down hill.  It is soooo uncomfortable. Sometimes it looks like i am pregnant and i can't wait to get home to put on my comfy's. Mine was never as bad as it has been after my second resection.  Sometimes i could just scream.  Seems to be getting a bit better since i went gluten free.  Not 100% but better.  Also trying to give up sugar ( not so easy ) to see if that too will help.  But i totally hear you.  The noises too.

all my gas and bloating is in the evenings. i cant pinpoint a particular food, but believe it may be caused by too much raw veggies, leafy greens, or yogurt. so i watch my consumption of those things. of course some days are better than others and some days i dont know what my body is doing. par for the course right?

i can see some abs in the morning so that is neat-o!
