I think a lot of us have been there - until my meds kicked in I was practically on autopilot during the night, I'd actually wake up running to the bathroom, it happened so often (if only my brain could have dealt with the whole thing while I was asleep ).
It might not work for you, but I found that if I lay in a certain position (for me, it was on my right side), I tended not to get the urge so much. If I so much as moved an inch from this position, I'd be heading for the bathroom again, but after a while my body learned to stay in this position and I got a bit more sleep. From what I've read from other people, a lot of us seem to have a bit more trouble when we lie on our left for some reason. I'm a good way towards remission and I still favour my right hand side or lie on my back.
Give it a try anyway - you might get an hour or two more sleep (which I bet sounds like a luxury right now).
That is true for me too! and here I thought i was the only one with that problem. I always try to sleep on my right side too and if i move just an inch suddenly i get cramps and i'm running to the bathroom. i do try to stay in the same position for as long as possible but then my right side gets numb and i just have to move (which leaves me very conscious during the night and also interferes with my sleep). but thanks for the advice. I really do hope that this stops really soon.
