My symptoms of IBS started around 2 years ago having had my first episode back in the early 90's which left me after. Couple of years. However what I am finding is my bladder is very sensitive and I keep wanting to go to the toilet all the time. I also keep getting tested for reoccurring bladder infections, although I don't feel particularly poorly I just get a strange odour from my water and need to go all the time. My stomache also swells however my bowels can be cleared with regular herbs to help soften my stools and keep me regular. Has anybody had bladder problems that have been linked to IBS or could this be something completely separate.
