Hi All,

In another thread, Carol wrote:

Symptoms getting better during the day? I am like that every day, even when I was in a flare my mornings were rough and let up as the day goes on. I am much more energetic in the evenings even now than I am in the morning and all that started with LC.


As Carol pointed out, I believe that's true for most of us — it's certainly true for me. Is it true for every one of us?

BMC (before MC) I was a morning person. I typically bounced out of bed about 4–4:30 am, and drank a glass of Carnation Instant Breakfast while the computer was booting. By the time 7:30 rolled around, I would have all of the shipping labels, bills of lading, invoices, etc. for the day's orders printed and ready to go, the production scheduling finalized, and I would head off to begin the regular day's work of cleaning and bagging corn and loading trucks.

AMC (after MC) I would drag out of bed about 6:30–7 am, hoping to make it to the bathroom in time. Before I finished getting dressed, I would usually have to make another trip, and I rarely was able to get out the door without a 3d trip. If I made it to work at all, I wasn't able to do much but sit around, make an occasional trip to the bathroom, all the time hoping to avoid having to vomit.

But the afternoons were always better, and I tried to schedule most of my work, especially making deliveries, in the afternoons.

I've been in remission for over 9 years now, and the afternoons are always better. It's not that I feel bad in the mornings, I just feel better in the afternoons. I tend to be more alert then, and I usually do my best work in the afternoons, or evenings.

Is this true for everyone? Is this another undocumented side effect of MC?

Well, I've changed too. Used to do most of my writing in the morning...now, I am lucky if I can get ANYTHING done in the morning. I do better in the afternoons. Mornings are slow, sometimes with nausea, sometimes cramping...so, yes, I've switched from a.m to p.m. :-)

I feel usually really good in the mornings (not a morning person either) but sometimes by the late afternoon I feel very bloated obviously something I am eating even though I am avoiding Gluten and rice (per Entrolabs advise). Very frustrating.

I am definitely better in the afternoon. I have normans about 90% of the time now, but still in the bathroom at least two maybe three times in the morning. I try not to schedule any appointments for the AM.

Not for me. I guess when I had first symptoms it was in the beginning of the day after breakfast though. But when the GI gave me antibiotics, I didn't have any symptoms for 2 months. But then when the symptoms returned, they came at night. Usually after 530 pm til 1130 pm.
It is funny, last summer, before I changed my diet, I could set up my D schedule usually. It was every 7 days between 630 til 830PM. I had other symptoms throughout the day, but not the D.

I am a notorious night owl. I do all my best work between 10 pm and 1 am. I hate mornings. Can't wake up before 8:30 without an alarm clock. Can sleep until 10 am if given the rare opportunity. MC is not bad morning or night, but I generally feel better in the evenings.

I have always done better in the afternoon and evenings, this at least for me has not changed with MC or any of the other AI issues. I can work all night until the early morning hours, but trying to get up early and get busy right away has never been my strong suit.

Food Intolerances : Too many to list

PostPosted: Tue Jul 23, 2013 9:29 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I realize that, given Polly's latest theory (which makes so much sense!) I am not, and never have been, a typical case, it also makes sense that I don't fit with anyone.

I was always a morning person, but not early, and I never jumped out of bed raring to go.
6.30 - 7 am? Middle of the night! Even though I was at work around that time, so I got up at 5 to do yoga before leaving, getting up was always torture.
However, evenings were always more difficult, and I have always known that, in order to get up on time, I had to go to bed early.

I have ALWAYS dealt with fatigue. I just never knew what caused it. I cannot go out at night, and haven't been able to for many years. No one invites me any more because I always say no.

I might have a couple of good hours in the middle of the day, depending on my pain level, but nothing more than that.

BMC-A morning person

AMC-I always had D at some point so I always scheduled appts. in the afternoon.

Now-Although I don't have D any longer, every 7 days or so I have to go 2-3 times in the morning so I still plan appts. for the afternoon.

If I ever go completely into remission I think it will take me a long time to believe I am really in remission enough to make morning appts.

I answered afternoons since that is when my system seems to be better. However, for energy it is definitely mornings. I am up by 4 AM at the latest every day - including weekends - and at work on the computer by 6 AM.

When it comes to afternoons I can get tired but the system is definitely better.

All my life, I've had more energy in the mornings, and it's still the case. However, it seems that as time goes by, my energy level is more even throughout the day and evening. I would say that until I dropped gluten and many other foods from my diet 3 years ago, I "collapsed" every evening at around 8 PM, completely drained of energy. Now I seem to have more "staying power". As far as my MC symptoms, they can strike at any time day or night, there does not seem to be a particular time of day for them to appear. Symptoms are much more tied to what I eat and when I eat it.

Before MC, mornings were always the best time for getting things done, very productive. There would be a lull in the afternoon and then another bounce of productivity lasting until after dinner.

Today, I don't want to get out of bed early but have to get up to go to the bathroom. I know I'll feel better once I get moving and get something into my stomach. Usually have to go to the bathroom another 1-2 times (occ. 4-5 x) before and after breakfast. I suppose I could just make a cup of coffee and read the paper in the bathroom for 45 minutes to an hour and count that as going once.

I'm not as productive as I used to be and I guess that is a combination of MC, arthritis and age. I feel better in the afternoon but always fall asleep if I sit down after lunch. I seem to have blood sugar issues after eating lunch and dinner but not breakfast.
