With the busy schedules of today, it can be difficult to get a good night's sleep. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can make the problem even worse, as symptoms such as diarrhea, pain, and constipation can be tiring.
Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night, so be sure to schedule that time into your day. Eat that last meal earlier in the evening to prevent any IBS symptoms from waking you up. Some chamomile or peppermint tea right before bedtime may also help.
