IBS and IC(Interstitial cystitis)

Does anyone have both IBS and IC ? I have both and to make matters worse I had to stop taking Citrucel twice a day because it was aggravating my IC. It was making urgency and frequency of having to urinate not only inconvienent but painful if I had to hold my urine for any length of time. It would give me pains in the sides near my kidneys and almost make me double over in pain. Now I have to even more vigilant about drinking enough water,eating enough fiber, and making sure I move my bowels at least once a day. If I don't move my bowels daily then it hurts to go the next day.
Does anyone else have their BM's get that hard to pass if they don't move their bowels every day ? My colon must suck up all the water out of my stool within 36 hours if I don't drink enough water.

Re: IBS and IC(Interstitial cystitis)

Hi...have you tried to add metamucil to your diet? I use metamucil capsules with meals..started slow, however.

Are you on any meds for IC?
