I posted something similar to this a while ago, but it wasn't this exact question... I seem to be having muscle trouble in the lower left stomach area and recently I have had frequent urination at night that causes an aching in that stomach area.. Has anyone heard of IBS related urinary problems?

i think so...i never used to wake up at night, but now i get up as many as 4 times a night to pee...could be cuz i haveta drink quite a bit of water, especially when i wake up in the middle of the night cuz i get extremely dehydrated...but still, the amount of times i need to go pee seem excessive to the amount of water i drink...

Hello. I find that when I have a bad flare up of my IBS symptoms I also experience frequent urination. It is a commonly recognized symptom of IBS. When the flare up calms down things get back to normal.Cherie.

Do you experience pain in your stomach area afterwards however? Like an ache in your muscle? This pain has now gotten so bad that I experience it all day long... It comes back again after going in the middle of the night or right when I wake up...

i'd go to the doc than if the pain is that regular and that bothersome. could be pulled/strained/tired muscle, or could be something else. best to get it checked out.

Someone posted an article a few days ago saying there are a bunch of symptoms that occur more often in people with IBS - among these were frequent urination and skin rashes, which is the subject of discussion on another thread.I too have experienced frequent urination, to the point where I decided to get tested for diabetes as that is one of the symptoms. However, I came out fine with diabetes.If you a man, and there is pain when you urinate, and you have frequent urination, you may have prostatitis, a fairly common disorder that a swelling of the prostate gland, which makes you urinate more. A doctor friend of mind suggested that might be the cause, but since I don't have any pain I chalk it up to IBS.Wish me luck guys - I have my first appt with a GI tomorrow to see if I have Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's (ie, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which has symptoms similar to IBS but is more serious)

Hi, I, too, have frequent urination with IBS. Right now, I'm a mess with everything with my IBS. I have constant pressure below my right ribs, and stabbing pain in that area every now and then, and my lower back hurts. Not to mention the usual bloating, constipation, etc. Does anyone else have the pressure on the right side and the lower back pain?
