Dear Penny,Looks like you are a new member, welcome to the board.Yes, I am very much like that in the mornings. If I have to go somewhere, I have to set my alarm for at least 3 hours prior just so I can get up and moving slowly and properly. But I had this long before the IBS, to varying degrees. I have recently found out that for me it is because I have Fibromyalgia. Do you have muscular and joint type pain? Headaches or dizziness or extreme fatigue?
