Allergic to getting up early?

After being diagnosed with IBS, I've noticed that getting up in the morning has begun to trigger some of the worst of my symptoms. Now, I'm forced to get up earlier than usual, just to make time to deal with getting sick before I'm able to start my day. Breakfast on top of getting up in the morning becomes a double whammy on my system and causes even greater symptoms that can last for most of the day. So breakfast must be skipped. Sleeping later into the day or allowing myself to wake up naturally doesn't have the same effect as being awaken earlier or by an alarm clock. I feel worse in the morning than any other time of day without having the trigger of food. Is there an explanation for this? Does anyone else have this issue?

Yes and many other issues. It's a roll of the dice when I get up early if I'm going to have problems. I haven't found any reasons or solutions for it either except to keep running to the bathroom until everything settles down.
