    Straining when having a BM can cause the bladder to react. That is what my Doctor told me. Due to an operation I had I must take miralax for the rest of my life. Every other day. Something no one should do with out A doctor's direction. My bladder no longer acts up since I've been taking it. Darn it's awful how IC can affect so many parts of our bodies. BM, back pain, sleep. The list goes on. All we can do is eat that apple one bite at a time. Hope you feel better soon. Hug, Ziggy

    I had a doctor at one time who believed in 'cross nerve talk' between the bowels and the bladder, and also between the nerves in the muscles of the pelvic floor. Its all so interrelated with nerves in that area, that I can see how one could effect the other.

    Yes! I am the same!

    Yes my bladder doesn't feel as bad until I have a bowel movement and then the frequency is worse. My doctor said he wants to sort my constipation out as ever since my bladder problems started a year ago, I have never had a 'normal' bowel movement... always constipated. He said this could be affecting my bladder. Kadi, it's interesting you said elavil might help this... I asked my uro about trying this yesterday and he said it wouldn't be suitable for me as I do not have pain...?

    Might have to ask my GP for it, she seems more willing to let me try stuff!

    That is strange. I have had my symptoms disappear after a good colon cleanse for test preps. My gastro is trying me on a fiber drink now because I have alot of rectal pressure too.

    Have you tried the Elavil or the pelvic floor therapy? Both sound like they maybe could help.
    Definitely worth having a conversation with your doctor about....

    Interesting, I'm pretty much the opposite. But then lots of women seem to flare with their period whereas I would tend to flare mid-cycle. Go figure!

    It does seem that there's some sort of link between what's going on in the bowels and how the bladder feels. Exactly what it is, your guess is as good as mine. Actually, your guesses sound pretty good!(?)

    started a topic Does this happen to anyone else?

    Does this happen to anyone else?

    Ok, so I notice that when I have a full colon (not nessecarily constipated) that my IC symptoms actually DISSAPEAR until I have a bowel movement and then they creep back. WHY would this happen!? Some days I feel like I should just place somthing up there so my symptoms would get better! Sorry if this is TMI, I am just curious if anyone else has this? Could it be something to do with the pelvic floor and nerves? Maby when the colon if full, it blocks the nerves in the bladder?
