Hi..I think you should stop the fish oil and the aloe vera for now and see if that improves your symptoms...usually our guts are more quiet during the night and more active during the day. Not all of us can take the fish oils. Aloe vera can cause diarrhea.
You could consider to take a fibre supplement..one that bulks the stool to help slow down some of the bms.
Have you never been on any of the meds such as Asacol or any rectal meds?
Where exactly is your UC...throughout or limited?
You can do some reading on UC meds and discuss with your doctor to have him add them.
Curious how your diet is during the day?
Are you ingesting any artificial sweeteners? If so...stop them since it can increase bowel activity a lot.
You could get your doc to prescribe dicyclomine..it's an antispasmodic. For many it helps to tone down the spasming and ultimately help with some of the bathroom trips so you can get some sleep.
Rectal meds will help with that as well.
Welcome to the forum by the way.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
