Mornings, or rather the first 5 or so hours of the day are always the worse for me. I can't eat breakfast, as if I do, I am destined for a day in the bathroom. Literally any intake of food or drink will immediately set me off worse than it usually is. Even when I don't eat breakfast, though, I always have multiple episodes of pain/cramping/soft stools each day around this time. I, as we all have to, make accommodations for this in my life, and always get up much, much earlier than needed so that I have the hours needed to finish up these morning attacks.I've tried lots of things to combat them, and it seems that nothing has worked. I've tried taking an immodium the night before at dinner, also before sleep, and then as soon as I awaken. Immodium stops working for me if I take it multiple days in a row, no matter if I take it at each meal. I've certainly tried the gamut of prescription meds and none have helped my case.I'm in the process of trying the calcium supplement which is outlined in the above forum. I take a daily probiotic too (which helps me with gas). Since I've been on over 20 meds to try and fight this, I'll try out the last resort- Lotronex-starting in a few weeks. I wondered if anyone had other ideas or home remedies for how to treat the daily morning attacks.I hate this thing! And like many of us am at my wit's end.
