I have never had any bladder problems except during an antiobiotic caused flare. It was the worst flare of my life and the only one that caused me any pain. I had to urinate way too often. wake up at night and go. I felt I always had to go. It was strange. I would tell my GI and he wouldn't say anything about it. It was a real annoyance. I was certain it was b/c of my horrible flare somehow.
It could have been from an bladder as well or my colon applying pressure, but now that I think about it I think my body may have been doing what it needed to do if the antibiotics caused an overgrowth of a bad bacteria and my body was working overtime to eliminate it. I don't know, but I know that flare was the worst by far...
