We all pass gas when: We sleep, and if you are having diarrhea, then it might not be unusual to pass some stool at the same time. GE reflux is not uncommon, and when lying down, esp on a full stomach and may seem like vomiting. Imodium (loperamide) slows intestinal activity, but may also delay stomach emptying. Aside from that, abnormal sedation from alcohol, sleeping pills, seizure, or occasionally a bad dream. I wish u well.
