My doctor told me that my urinary frequency is linked to my IBS. I just wondered if it could be some other condition causing this problem.Any suggestions will be very much appreciated.Courage

Hi Courage,I also suffer from increased urinary frequency which can be another symptom of IBS.If your concerned about this, perhaps you should see your doctor again and ask him/her to schedule you some tests to rule out other causes.Clair
