Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Please note that the bladder is in the close neighborhood to the large intestine and small intestines. So large, bloated intestine can cause such feeling due to compression on the bladder. The point is why you get this bloating.
There might be few reasons including bacterial infection, bad diet or partial bowels obstruction.
I suggest you to start with diet improvement. Please increase fiber rich products, mineral water intake and start probiotic supplementation. If this wont help, consult your doctor. Stool tests should be done as well as abdominal ultrasound. Colonoscopy should be considered.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
