Defecating while sleeping - why?
  I went to bed around 2 AM Last night.  When I got up about 7 hours later, I found that I had gone to the bathroom in bed.  No urine - just diarrhea.  I found the need to use the bathroom when I got up and had full control of my bowels. What could be the problem?

This can happen when you release air.  Nothing to worry about, and I doubt you will do it again.

I have had this problem ever since my appendix were taken out.  Sleeping at my boyfriend's house or having him sleep here takes much preparation.  I have to be sure to have towels, washcloths and extra night clothes  because I never know when I will wake up in a wet pile.  I have been watching what I eat, alcohol intake (None,) everything I can think of.  Last night I was home alone and woke up to not a little wet spot, but what looked to be a full diarrhea release.  I've been crying pretty much since.  PLEASE HELP ME!  My doc is a (pardon my bluntness) a jerk-off and I would like to go in with a few ideas if possible.  
I'm so embarrassed.  Please give me what help you can.  This happens at least twice a week.  
Any time you can give me would mean so much!
thank you

Have you been tested for Celiac?  I recommend joining the Celiac forum, too.  You can test negative for Celiac but still have Celiac, so don't let anyone get away with dismissing you with just testing with the blood test for antibodies.  It is insufficient.  I suspect you do have Celiac, because these are classic Celiac symptoms.  The sooner you get diagnosed and change your diet the better, because Celiac causes great damage to the digestive tract.  The longer you put it off, the more damage that can be done from unwittingly eating gluten.
