I have not been diganosed with Crohn's; I have a colonoscopy January 14. I just have so many symptoms that seem to point to Crohn's.
I was wondering if anyone experiences gas and stomach discomfort in the early morning hours? When I wake up around 4:30 or 5 a.m. and I am not quite ready to get up I notice my bowels kick into high gear and I feel gas building up and I have to pass gas and burp. If I continue to lie flat it gets worse. Then when I sit up it gets better. It is so weird. It's like as soon as I am awake I can no longer stay in the lay down position but I have to sit up. I always go to the bathroom and try to have a bowel movement, but usually I am not ready for one yet. This is every single morning.
Can anyone relate or explain why this is?
