    i know about tms from 2-3 months and have been doing tms work from quite sometime i have been able to get hold of my life , i have started living like i used and iam working on fears overall iam in a much better place than i was when i started looking at this website.
    as some of you might know about my symptoms from previous threads
    i have been becoming confident about them being tms as i can literally see them happening due to muscle tension which is tms
    the only symptom which i get some time which is putting me in that dreadful ic/inflammation zone is since all the urinary symptoms started i have been drinking quite a fair amount of water but whenever i don't like last week when i was on vacation i didn't drink alot of water and only went to pee twice a day and it irritated the whole area down there but when i came back increased water intake it went back to normal
    as i was surfing internet i know i shouldn't i cae across something which said most of the people don't make any effect even when the urine is concentrated due to dehydration only people with some level of inflammation feel the effect
    and i remember i never used to have any problem as such and i used to barely drink water before this problem started happening so i don't know what should i take away from it in terms of tms

    With regard to whether TMS can possibly cause inflammation, I asked about it on this thread that I started (which was in relation to my experiencing breast inflammation post-menopause, but inflammation was also discuss in general terms too) and the consensus seemed to be that TMS can cause inflammation http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/can-tms-cause-inflammation.19237/#post-101453 (Can TMS cause inflammation?). Here's another thread where it's also discussed http://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/sarno-on-inflammation.7322/ (Sarno on inflammation ?).

    Kimaya,
    I'm late with this thought, but maybe you are still interested.

    You're brain does use your body to communicate when something is wrong, so maybe when you don't get enough water your brain is using an area of the body where it knows it has your attention? Obviously that isn't a medical answer, but just something I wondered when reading your question. Normally you would feel thirsty in your throat, but I think with ic one might be able to sense it in their bladder when others might not. Anyway, I thought it was something to think about. And I hope your symptoms are calmed down already!

    I think it’s caused by whatever you think at the moment is causing it. Our beliefs are strong. I can list all the foods I once thought were the culprit only to later challenge them and now eat them without fear. But maybe run with it. If the placebo effect is at work, what does it hurt to drink more water!

    I think there might be several reasons. One reason: if you don’t drink much and do not go to the toilet often, then your urine is very concentrated and can irritate the urethra a bit. Nothing problematic, it goes away after some minutes. Another reason might be that it is not good to tense the muscles in order to hold urine and avoid to go to the toilet. The muscles feel then sore and that can be felt in the urethra. So, going to the toilet whenever you need and drinking the normal amount of fluid is good for the bladdder. And then of course: sensitivity of the urethra or bladder can be pure TMS.
