Interstitial Cystitis In Fibromyalgia


What is Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis is a chronic bladder illness which falls under a spectrum of illnesses referred to as painful bladder syndrome.

It involves pain in the abdomen and pelvic region that is often linked to your bladder getting full and accompanied by some other urinary symptoms. However, this condition is not due to infection or other underlying diseases.

It is not yet clear what causes interstitial cystitis. In fact, doctors would often misdiagnose the symptoms as being due to Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Since the diagnosis is often based on the presence of some other conditions, the patient can have IC for several months or years before the condition is properly diagnosed.

    This was some very good information. I always read these post regarding Fibromyalgia. The more I learn the more I feel that I’ve been living with this condition as far back as my teenage years. Even though I was 50+ when I was diagnosed. I can honestly say that I have noticed every symptom ever posted relating to Fibromyalgia.
    Thanks so much for the valuable information.
