Painful Bladder Syndrome Treatment (Interstitial Cystitis)

The human body is fallible and hence our body has a built-in immune system to protect us against all sorts of diseases, disorders, bacteria, etc. But sometimes even despite these protective mechanisms a few diseases can get through and start impacting the body. Among these is a wider range of diseases called painful bladder syndrome that comprises many other diseases that affect the bladder and can be painful. This article will examine a condition within painful bladder syndrome known as Interstitial Cystitis. What is Interstitial Cystitis? Interstitial Cystitis is a chronic condition that can cause bladder pain, bladder pressure, or even pelvic pain in some cases. The pain can be mild or it can be severe depending on individual instances. The bladder is a muscular organ in charge of storing urine. When the bladder is full it expands and sends a signal to the brain through pelvic nerves that it’s time to urinate. This then creates the urge or impulse to use the washroom. However, with Interstitial Cystitis, the urge to urinate happens more often and for smaller amounts of urine because the signals get mixed up. This condition is more likely to affect women than men so it’s best to visit your gynaecologist
