    Yes!
    I have this too! It feels the worst when I am sitting down. The burning/irritation shoots right from my bladder base/urethra to my rectal area. I told my uro about this & even though I did not have any muscle spacicity in my internal exam, he wanted me to try Valium for PFD. He wanted me to take 2mg 3x a day, but I was never able to get past 1/2 pill in the am & afternoon & 1 pill at night. It just made me too groggy & I have a 15 month old & a 7 year old.
    My belief is that it is irritated nerves that just shoot out. It is all very connected down there! I am on 20mg of Elavil right now, which I am sure helps a little, but not enough. I notice it get much worse the week leading up to my period & during the first few days of my period. I am going to try to get back on my Lo-estrin 1/24 BCP to help control this. I think my uro might try me on Lyrica next. He said he has had good luck with this in his patients with nerve pain.
    I hope to find something that helps!

    All connected

    It is all connected, and the nerves that run through the pelvic floor control bowel, bladder, vagina, urethrea sensations. When something is not working properly symptoms can be felt in any or all of these areas.

    I have the same thing as jen.. I never really had burning.. but I do feel rectal pressure and pain many times when I am flaring.. at the same time, I have IBS.. and have had rectal and colon issues in the past.. a lot is due to what I am told is my PFD and how all is conected..

    Well, I don't have that exact sensation, but I do have rectal pain sometimes during flares. It doesn't happen all of the time, but I can remember a few really bad ones where I did have pain there. It could be referred pain sensations, or a pelvic floor issue as well -- rectal sensations are very common when pelvic floor muscles are tight, according to the Headache in the Pelvis book.

    weird burning during flare symptom- anyone else?

    Does this happen to others? When I am flaring, besides the horrible burning sensation associated with IC in the bladder and urethra areas, I also have a strong burning sensation with my bowel area as well.

    I do not have IBS, but during a flare it feels as it my urine is acid and also my #2. Don't mean to be graphic here, but I have always wondered if this happens to others?

    Thanks, Carla
