Sounds normal to me. I much rather get er done early. Anyway good time to catch up on my reading.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

My mornings too, and that's after having taken an immodium the night before so I could sleep thru the night without having to go 1-3 times. For whatever reason, my guts have a thing about me laying down to go to sleep. That's when THEY seem to wake up.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

I think most of us have been there ;p

These days I have almost the opposite problem and, tbh, I preferred the morning rush. At least it was predictable. The way it is now, I don't know when I'll go or if I'll go. Two mornings ago I didn't go at all. Then this morning I woke up at some ungodly hour, lied in bed for ages while my stomach gurgled and burbled away, finally had an urge to go, went, and then couldn't get back to sleep. Bleurgh.

Mornings thats no problem. It's when it happens in the middle of the night another story. You startle awake on the throne for the 3rd or 4th time and wonder if it's safe to go back to bed. That's when I hate this DD.

That exactly is the reason my Kindle is on my bathroom counter, within reaching distance from the "throne". It's amazing how much reading I get in some days.

I remember the days I had only 1 trip before leaving the house for the day....aaaah, how I miss those days!

Morning dumpS are the nature of the beast when it comes to IBD.

omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day

I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

This "returning" to restroom just after leaving it used to bother me. I felt it made no sense and something serious was going on (more than usual). But we mature... and get used to things other may think inimaginable.

Now, it only bothers me  when I'm hurt down there. :P

I had a bad morning too. Probably 8 times!! Ugh!!!!!!! But, at least I wasn't in pain, I just had to go a lot and quickly.

I also get the sweats and rapid heart beat with it too. Yesterday, I was hot all day long, didn't sleep well, should have known, this would be a bad day. Should have taken an imodium before I went to bed. But, I was bad yesterday and had quite a bit of caffeine in the form of tea, my favorite beverage and just ate too much in general. Am on a round of flagyl right now and that got me out of pain, thank you Jesus!!!!!! But, if it's not one thing, is another with IBD.

IBS, high BP, fibromyalgia, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease
claritin, diovan, progesterone, VSL#3 probiotic, Vit. D, colazal, plaquenil, nexium for reflux, wellbutrin, 5 mg prednisone/day.

Positive ANA, LOTS of joint pain followed by a recent set back with the colitis.
