I just received an interesting submission to my Readers Respond article, "What Effect Does Sleep Have on Your IBS?" The reader posted that if their back is not in a certain position, then they are awakened by a strong urge to defecate. This reader went on to say that the side they are sleeping on can either make their bowels feel better or worse. I have long heard of a connection between IBS and sleep, but this is the first I have heard about a connection to sleep position. Have you seen such a connection? Take my poll and let me know!
