I am a 28-y-o with 2 kids and I have been suffering from urinary incontinence for a little while, investigations so far are pointing towards pelvic floor damage.
Until recently I had no bowel problems, but I've recently started getting sudden urges to pass stool and I'm often (average once per day) not managing to hold on till I get to the loo. Sometimes it's loose stool but often it's just normal, not diarrhoea - I just can't hold on for long enough. Typically I'll be in the middle of something and suddenly need to go, crampy stomach pain, and if there's not a loo within about 30 secs walking distance I've had it.
Could this be IBS? Or something different? I know I should go back to the doctor but I feel so ashamed and embarrassed.
