I have what appears to be IBS. I have chronic diarrhea like every day a few times a day. I have had numerous GI tests done, including colonoscopy, showing nothing conclusive. I have frequent bowel leakage due to the diarrhea. Its like urge fecal incontinence. I get the urge to go, and I just can't make it. This happens a few times a week. Does this happen to anyone else with IBS?

Do 3-4 sets of these pelvic floor muscle exercises every day, and you can strengthen the muscles that help control urination.
Drinking less makes urine more concentrated, and may irritate the lining of the urethra and bladder. Keep your bladder healthy with at least 50-oz of water a day.
Urine leakage can be caused by many factors, and may be improved or cured with the right diagnosis. Consult your doctor or a specialist to discuss your situation.
By keeping a bathroom journal and recording fluid intake, bathroom trips and leaks – you’ll discover patterns to share with your doctor.
While you can’t prevent urine odor, you can curb it by drinking more water, taking urine-deodorizing tablets, like vitamin C; or drinking non-citrus juices.
Caffeine, alcohol, acidic foods, chocolate, artificial sweeteners, carbonated drinks and spices can irritate your bladder. If any of these trigger your leakage, remove them from your diet.
