when I get those feelings my IBS is usually flaring. check what you have been eating or drinking before. depending on what it is that got the flare going it could take a few hours or a few weeks for the flare to stop.

I have had that feeling before, usually in a store or on an outing of some kind. I found the solution that works for me is to restrict fluids for an hour before I leave, and then tinkle just before I leave the house.
I can fake myself out like this because when I get the signal I know there is nothing there and I am not afraid of leaking. I have gradually extended my time away like this.
This is my solution and it does not always work but I think with me, half the time it is habit and not a muscle problem. Maybe it will help you to try and condition yourself like this.

I started the "couch to 5k" running plan this week, and during my first run, 1/2 way through I had the "go potty, go potty NOW" feeling, and after a hurried walk to the bathroom was unsuccessful in going. After my side stitch went away I finished my workout, no problem. Today it happened again, and I don't understand if it's because my ab muscles are just not used to be worked out or if it might be a problem. Has anyone else had a problem with exercise making them feel like they have to "go potty. go potty NOW!"? Is there a way to avoid that feeling or do I need to make sure there's a bathroom stop along my running route each time?
