Night time trips are an indication of more severe flaring. They are perhaps some of the most disruptive bathroom trips as well - how is your body supposed to heal when it can't sleep!?!?!? My first flare was plagued with night time explosions. Heaven forbid I moved in my sleep!
I would strongly suggest calling the doctor's office and stressing your symptoms, getting put on a cancellation list, and having them give you some recommendations.
One thing that got me a couple of extra hours of sleep was taking Tylenol before bed. (Remember no NSAIDs!) If the pain is more than Tylenol will handle, an rx for Darvocet from your PCP may be in order.
Best of luck! Oh - and Welcome to HW! Glad to have you, but sorry you had to find us...
