I also experience pressure in the bladder when going to the bathroom. My pelvic floor physical therapist told me it's probably tight pelvic floor muscles and that she could help me with that. You may look into pelvic floor PT.
I deal with this. I was referred to a Urologist who is now referring me to another urologist who specializes more in what I deal with.
Yes a lot of people have posted about pelvic PT helping! Ive been looking on some videos on YouTube to try! @A MyEndometriosisTeam Member
Pressure yes I also have IC but both conditions have similar symptoms both go together unfortunately. I sometimes have pelvic pain before and after going to the bathroom. Do you drink any coffee or caffeine, special drinks or supplements? that may add to the smell.
Hope you feel better!
