Any thought to why GI issues are worse in the morning? I spend at least and hour in the bathroom, just cannot empty bowels, not constipated per say, just cannot move everything out., stomach continues to cramp the rest of the morning, might actually need to have another BM or it's just cramping...maybe mucus, but I feel completely wiped out many times I just crawl back into bed and sleep if at all possible, I have even called off work a few times because it was that bad and I could not function. I find that if I survive until afternoon the issues pretty much go away or at least the painful cramping/spasms. I often say if I could just find a way to make these symptoms occur before bed instead of before work I could manage somewhat better...although ideally I want to get resolve them all together.

As teen I had the same time pattern.

I thought it was anxiety and a gastro-doctor told me it was Lactose intolerance.

A high school classmate was diagnosed with Celiac.

I wish that gastro doctor I saw as a teen had tested me for Celiac.


But now that I'm looking back to understand Celiac,

I wonder the same thing: why was it worse in the mornings?




maybe when the stool moves more slowly at night,

it has time to irritate the colon.

vs in the daytime our movement speeds up the stool transiting in the colon.

I too have mornings like this that do usually get better as the day goes on. I wish I had an answer, as much as I'm glad to know what's wrong with me these days, I hate that abstaining from gluten isn't enough and that there aren't answers for how to make it better :-/
