    I have noticed that as well! Crazy thing is at times after having a BM I will have what feels like a muscle spasm or muscle cramp. It will hurt so bad for about 30-40 minutes. I have found walking slowly until you can get moving normally will help it to go away a little sooner. The worst part is getting up off the toliet once it starts. I have even just sat and held my breath trying to not move any. Only good news I can give you about that (if its the same pain I have experienced) is it doesn't happen everytime I go, just from time to time. (usually about once every 2 or 3 months.) Good Luck and God Bless

    What I take

    I have colon issues also so I try to be very regular I take the Acacia fiber (2 tsp a day) from the ICN shop, I also take a tsp of psyllium fiber each day. Additionally, I take 2 chlorophyll tablets a day.

    I guess you are in a bit of a dilemma, however, if you aren't regular that might cause more pain. I hope that you can find something that will help.

    Hi Stacie,

    This is exactly my problem. I'm almost scared to have a bm now because of the bowel pain that ensues. The other day I felt like my bladder went into spasm afterward. It's terrible!

    Yes, Donna is right. Constipation can cause an increase in symptoms. I also notice a slight increase in symptoms after a BM sometimes. Scientists have discovered that the nerves in the bowel and bladder can "cross-talk".. meaning they can talk to each other and they think that's why bowel problems affect the bladder and vice versa.

    The bowels and bladder are very close to each other --- I know constipation is not good with IC.

    HI,
    I'm new to all this, as i just got diagnosed a couple weeks ago, but have been having symptoms i think for years. I do notice that if I go pee, and can't have a bm, the pain is worse. and usually there is this pressure that hurts inside. So i don't know if that's the same as what you are talking about, but after I have the bm, it feels better, although it still feels like i have to pee. Sorry if this wasn't very helpful, i'm still trying to figure it all out myself!!
