  • Bloating pressure feeling please help?

    Up and till two days ago I was feeling fine. I had been pain free for seven weeks straight and also had the frequency under control, I never knew that bladder was there. After a bowel movement(sorry for all the details) I started to feel bloated and had heaps of gas, then the frequency started to sky rocket. I do not have bladder pain or burning just constant feeling of pressure and heaps of frequency. Also I am not due for my period as yet. What can this be? I look like I am pregnant. Has anybody experienced these symtoms, if so what did you do that helped?

    HI! I've had major bowel issues since my gastric sugery and difficult bowel movements cause bladder spams for me and frequency to get worse. I have IBS so that doesn't help matters you have IBS? Roxie

      Hi Roxie,

      I have never been diagnosed for IBS but I suspect I might have it.It gets so frustrating with IC its one thing after another.

        I have the "pregnant" belly look also. I have noticed since my constipation is better with the interstim, the belly has reduced some. If you haven't already, maybe try some rolaids, tums, or something else that is meant for pressure and bloating. Try to drink more water also which will help your bowels move better.

          I look like I am pregnant most of the time. I don't know exactly what it is from since my bowels have the normal. I do have IBS but no problems lately. I have been in a flare for 2 months maybe thats it. This has gone on for a while and when I am bloated the joke at my house is when is Jona going to be born.
