IBS and sleeping


I am mostly at home at the moment. After every bowel movement I have, I become very sore with throbbing and I need to lay down on my sides until this eases.

The problem is that after laying down for 10-15 minutes as it can take about an hour to completely ease off, I become very drowsy tired and just end up sleeping for about 2-3 hours straight during the day and I still feel disorientated when I wake up.

Does anyone else have problems with sleeping during the day because of needing to lay down due to IBS and how do you cope with it?

I am quite inactive also due to low energy and sleeping patterns.
