Maybe the medications you are on are causing the lack of sleep.What meds are you on? You should add more information about your medication in your signature. You can do this by going into the control panel then into edit profile then scroll down to signature and add details of date of diagnosis and meds.

Prednisolone or other steroids can cause to take them first thing in the morning (after eating)

It's tough when your flares are more active at night to get proper sleep...try chamomile tea, it is great for stomach issues including IBD and IBS and if you drink it at night it will help you sleep. Google chamomile for all the benefits.

I drink it first thing every morning before I even eat's a natural anti-inflammatory among other things.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
