Low Water pressure

I am trying to figure out why my water pressure seems to have decreased. My house is about 11 years old and am hooked to public water. I have noticed on the second floor that if I flush the commode and then start the shower, the commode water supply to the commode stops until the shower is turned off. I've also noticed that the pressure at the kitchen sink doesn't seem to be very strong. Any suggestions?

Ther are so many things that could contribute to this. If you have a softner you could have a problem with or no softner and hard water thats clogging the plumbing system. A valve somewhere thats not open all the way. The ballcock in the toilet maybe clogged up and just not filling up as fast as it should and when other water is ran just slowing it down more.
