Morning only GI issue??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

For about a week now I've been having lower GI issues each morning. It's just in the morning...no matter what I eat the night before. It happens BEFORE my morning coffee so that's not the problem either (Thank Heaven) I end up with diarrhea every 30-45mins for a couple of hours. 

 

After that everything is fine. NO idea what's causing it as "morning" seems to be the only common factor. Thoughts?

Any new vitamin, supplement, or medication, at any time of day?

Nope. Nothing new at all in the last few weeks. Originally I thought it was PMS related but I got my cycle and it continued.

i had that same problem that got worse when pregnant, and one of my practitioners told me to try and take a large dose of probiotics with a hot glass of water or tea before bed - and it immediately resolved itself.

I was discussing it with DH and that is almost exactly his advice: Probiotics. So I'm making yogurt later and adding coconut oil to my diet.

Probiotics are great and you can also take psyllium husk to help with either diarrhea or constipation. If you decide to try that, start with a very small amount as it can cause gas until your system gets used to it.

I hope these easy things help but if it doesn't resolve, get into your doc and request a visit to a GI specialist.
I ended up with ulcerative colitis during the pregnancy of my first, wasn't diagnosed until he was about 9 months old and was miserable that whole time, thinking things would just get better. I had many other issues on top of diarrhea, but mine started out with issues mainly in the morning.
