Hi Kellie when I was having pain it was worse at night .I had TI problems that required resection. I think it is because of eating threw the day but others here might have other ideas about it.I was **** to blockages as well so things weren't getting threw as good as they should. lol gail

I think its different for everyone. Most of my pain and nausea has always been in the early morning. Once my meds kick in I am good to go again.

Pain could be from different body position or from being hungry (I know of all things...) too. Maybe the intestinal contents are rubbing up against a sore spot when she lays down. I wonder if doing a liquid diet for a couple hours before bed and maybe having some liquid nutrition availble easily at night might help. However there is such a thing as intestinal motilitity going down when someone is sleeping.

Hi there,

I always had pain at night. I was great in the morning and through out the day but my pain would start as soon as I would sit down for dinner. Very weird. Started to think it was psychological. I tried taking my meds at different times of the day, tried not eating dinner, tried not eating lunch, everything. Nothing really helped. I'm good now because of the bowel resection I just had but I don't wish that upon your daugther. You just have to keep trying new things to see what works. Good luck!!!
