  • Firstly.. make sure you have been checked for diabetes due to your frequent urination and it can cause neuropathy. I assume that would of been checked but make sure you have been diabetes tested (never just assume doctors have tested something). I think it sounds like fibromyalgia with its coexisting conditions Irritable bowel syndrome often coexists with fibromyalgia. There are 3 types of IBS...one is the constipation/diarhear varietyFibromyalgia can be extremely painful.Fibromyalgia can affect the memory and concentration too hence term "fibro fog" is common with the illness.Fibromyaligia can also present with "interstitial cystitis" So i suggest you reseach fibromyalgia, IBS and interstitial cystitis. They all go together in fibro.
