digestive system issues

I never seem to get a restful nights sleep due to an active digestive system with lots of gurgling etc. I don't eat particularly late and not large meals but my gut seems to come alive at night and it can be uncomfortable as I often feel pressure so have to sometimes sit up to sleep. What could be going on? Thank you

Re: digestive system issues

Great that you've already taken steps not to eat too close to bedtime and avoiding large meals. It sounds like something you're eating is playing havoc and you may have some food intolerances? Might be worth looking at what you're eating on the nights you don't sleep well - ie. eating more processed food, more carbs or even drinking more caffeinated drinks.
