Posted by Red_34: First, don't worry about
spelling errors! :) We just use the term "D" when referring to diarrhea - it's much easier. Second, yes pred can cause insomnia.
Third, mornings are usually tough on all of us. While you are sleeping so is your colon so when you get up in the morning, it's sort of an alarm clock for your colon. Mornings are hard on me too and I'm in remission!
Yes the drama stops but usually only when you can calm your colon down unfortunately :(
Red_34 - This is the best explanation I have ever heard about
I have been reading on this forum for a while and finally registered tonight. I first developed UC back in 1980 and have been been lucky enough to stay in remission for the most part through the years, but have always had rough mornings. I found this forum after having a minor flare recently due to work-related stress.
