?irritable bowel: It's nit clear as to whether you're having irritable bowel symptoms also causing the need to urinate or vice versa, but irritable bowel syndrome appears likely nevertheless. Discuss this with your physician who may prescribe medication for your symptoms after assessment and ordering of appropriate tests if he/she deems them advisable. Dietary advice may also be given.
