I am trying to find answers for my dad. He has been diagnosed with IBS. I am trying to learn why his bowels start to move 3 - 4 hours after he goes to bed. Once they start, he is in the bathroom every 30 - 60 minutes until 9 or 10am. He is taking probiotics now and has been following a very strict diet for a long time now. His stools are almost normal some times, but for the most part they are slightly resembling diareah and have a bit of very bright blood. My big question is why are his bowels moving so much after he goes to sleep, more so then when he is awake during the day?
