Red face Chronic Diarrhea - only at night?

I know I have IBS, Fibro, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - but I having terrible chronic severe bloating, gas, cramping and diarrhea on and off for over a year. This last month it has gotten extremely bad. I can't sleep because I'm up all night with the pain and attacks. Sometimes have moderate fever at night, too. I am fine during the day, then in the evening, it starts up and by midnight all hell has broke loose. As quickly as the sun rises in the morning, everything stops and I am fine - exhausted and sore - but over the diarrhea.

Had some tests done yesterday - endoscopy and colonoscopy. I feel like with everything I have - there's a name for it but no treatment or cure. I am currently taking bentyl and an RX for the diarrhea - helps but not enough.

Re: Chronic Diarrhea - only at night?

sounds to me like ibd but hope thats not the case..the colonoscopy for sure will tell. When you had the colonoscopy didnt the doctor told you what he suspects? My doctor told me ibs when he finished the colonoscopy before going home.
