  • Unexplained pain

    Hi everyone. I have been having some issues for the past few days and I am a little worried. I was diagnosed with IC in 2008 and it has been pretty manageable for me. I havent had much pain. Just frequent bathroom trips and urgency. Last week I started feeling so bloated that I couldnt eat a normal sized meal without feeling like my stomach was filled up to capacity. When I touch my abdomen it is tender and looks swollen. I thought maybe I was constipated, but I dont think that is the case. I still cannot eat as it just makes me feel miserable. Does this normally happen with IC?

    It's possible that your current problem is IC related, but there are also other possible causes --- I strongly suggest you call your doctor and make an early appointment.
