Binge eating at night

I have had a problem with binge eating for a long time. I have a lot of stomach problems (IBS) and when I am feeling bloated or am having stomach pain, I eat a lot. I also binge eat when I am tired or stressed. It always happens at night. I usually eat a lot of sweets and fattening food. When I am finished eating, I am usually so full I can't hardly move. I feel terrible and usually just go to bed. I wake up the next day feeling terrible that I have done that to myself. Lately, I feel very tired and fatigued and have been binging a lot. Does anyone have any recommendations as to a remedy?

The only recommendation is to control ur hands from over eating.

Try a dose of Nux Vomica on the days you have over eaten.

I have seen some other people say that Nux Vomica helps. I know that it is good for people who have eaten or drank in excess, but does it only help with that or does it help stop a person from binging?

I have the same problem but I control it by drinking ice water with lots of lemon in it. You can always buy sugar free candy to suck on too!

Yes, this sounds very familiar!
I have been working with my homeoepath for the last 4 years to try and get to the bottom of this (and other) problem/s, and have subsequently been taking 1M dose of Syphilinum (tendency to self-destruct), Saccharum Officinalis and Lactum Maternum (both to do with self-love - or lack of it) powder once a month for the last 6 months.
My (over)eating patterns have all but disappeared by now. The habitual thoughts are still there (my so called 'reward thoughts' for having a hard/easy day, or achieving/not achieving something during that day, etc.), but I rarely act upon them - and when I do, I don't have to do it again the next night, and most importantly I don't feel the need to crucify myself because of it!

Of course, this is only my experience.
It goes without saying that you would need to see a qualified and, preferably, experienced homeoepath in order to get a proper advice.

Just a thought, though - IF the lack of self-love is an issue, one could do worse than take a look at Louise. L. Hay's books on positive and life-changing affirmations (affirmation number 1: I LOVE AND APPROVE OF MYSELF:).
All the best.
