I sleptwalked (is that the past tense of sleepwalk???) occasionally when I was a kid, but I didn't have UC then. I can see why he'd loose control of his bowels when he sleepwalks, though. When I was flaring and would have to get up with my son at night (he's almost 8 months), I'd ALWAYS have to run to the bathroom. Being up and moving after seemed to get things moving. Aren't people in a really deep sleep when they're sleepwalking? If so, that makes sense why he wouldn't wake up and realize he's got to poo.
Status: Remission since late May 2009!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa twice weekly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
