I'm so glad to have found this forum. I have tried the Interstitial Cystitis Network and an anxiety support forum with not much response/help. I'm hoping to get more help here! Basically, I have pretty much all of the TMS personality traits. I'm going through one of - if not the most - difficult life situation: I'm a stay at home mom of a needy toddler, and I'm just not cut out to be a stay at home mom (wasn't even sure if I wanted kids in the first place). I'm not enjoying this lifestyle, but here I am as of now. Therefore, I'm under a lot of stress, am anxious a lot and mildly depressed. My physical symptom is a sometimes constant feeling like I need to urinate/pee, even if I've just gone. I don't really have the pelvic pain, but sometimes mildly. Of course I fear I have IC, and I went to a urologist who just by hearing me describe my symptoms doesn't think I have it. Yet, I still decided to try the IC diet (which I'm still doing - what a pain!), and even take some overactive bladder medication. However, I do think this is anxiety related. My muscles are always tense (I have TMJ issues too), and now the tension seems to be more focused in my pelvic region (because I'm thinking about it - consciously or subconsciously) - so it kinda makes sense that if there's tension there, it could make you feel you need to pee a lot. My symptoms decrease if I'm on Xanax...another telltale sign. I also don't have to get up to pee a lot at night. Anyone had this specific symptom? Does it sound like TMS?
