    Many people that have IC also have IBS...I don't know that IC causes it, per se, but they can go hand-in-hand. PFD CAN cause IBS-like symptoms such as the cramping and constipation. This is due to the muscles of the pelvic floor not working properly prior to and during a BM.
    Hope you feel better soon!

    I was diagnosed first with IBS....

    I have this in my signature, but I was diagnosed with IBS. It's subsided quite a bit over the years, but particularly when I get stressed out over something, I'll have an episode. I don't necessarily know if IC acts the same due to stress too.

    I developed constipation along with the IC. After physical therapy (pelvic floor, back, hips), it's much better managed...

    Any dietary changes recently? Activity changes?
