Urologist 's  Response
It could just as well be due to a bowel issue as much a bladder problem if there is a pelvic pain. But if the pain is related to urination, we would normally ask for at least an ultrasound scan and a urine examination, and if the reports are normal, I guess you could try some empirical treatment such as anti-spasmodics, stool softeners, soft bland diet. You could also take some probiotics. Urine bladder spasms are likely to be relieved with medications such as Flavoxate thrice daily.
