PAIN IN LOWER STOMACH

Every morning now for the past three months I have woken up by pain in my lower stomach. I have IBS, Barrett's Esohpagus aand diverticulus. I noticed that my urine has been alittle dark in the morning, but my doctor said, that was normal. I'm starting to wonder if it could be my bladder. I had my prostate checked and the doctor said, it was alittle enlarged, but nothing to be concerned about. I had blood work done. All came back fine, including my PSI . What could be causing this pain. I also noticed that I am tired more in the morning and I have sore muscles and joints. They ease up as I move around. I am 56 and just wondering what this might be. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  Do you have any bladder symptoms like urgency, leakage, or pain?  Do you have any GI symptoms like changes in your bowel movements, nausea, or bloating?

No just a pain in lower stomach and my stomach growls alot, I know its gas, but why doesn't it move. Once in awhile I will have sharp pains in my stomach and have to rush to the bathroom. I know thats part of the IBS. But why I get these pains in my stomach only in the morning is strange. My GI doctor just passed it off, like it was nothing. I also noticed that I don't belch that much. Even if I do drink a soda or beer once in a great while, maybe once a year or so.

Rushing to the bathroom to urinate or have a bowel movement?  Do you have changes in your bowel movements, nausea, or bloating?  Why do you think it is gas?

Because of the cramping and gas . Sometimes I have it and sometimes I don't. My GI doctor said, it was IBS or Spastic colon.

So are you passing more gas?  Has your diet changed recently?

No, still eating everything the doctor told me I could eat. And eating nothing at least 3 hours before bedtime.

I would recommend asking your doctor about different elimination diets to see if this helps.
