Hi everyone, been a while since I've been on here, but nice to know I have people who understand when I'm going through a rocky patch again. I suffer with IBS and have done for about seven years, I also for as long as I can remember have had a relatively weak bladder. I am currently going through a phase of high anxiety due to the increased need to urinate as a result of IBS. When I say increased, I mean Sunday morning I went to the toilet with IBS symptoms twice and subsequently needed to urinate five times in the following two hours. As I am getting more aware of the impact my IBS is having on my bladder, going out is becoming increasingly stressful and starting to negatively impact on my life, as I am only 24! I wondered if anyone else has had similar experiences and any advice would be really appreciated. I have been referred to a specialist but day to day in the meantime is proving difficult.
