Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry you have this urinary bladder problem. You may or may not have an infection that causes this. Have you had a cystoscopy or work up for immune disease? If not, this is what you need to do. Blood tests for autoimmune disease, cystoscopy, possible bladder biopsy and urethral stretching. May I suggest you schedule an appointment with a Urologist for the evaluation.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
Another cause of IC is myometritis (endometriosis) so if you haven't had an internal exam with your Gynecologist, this may be the time. Were biopsies done when you had the cystoscopy?
urethral stretching to help completely empty your bladder, Kigel maneuvers also to help enlarge/empty your bladder completely. Medication such as an antihistamine, Hydroxyzine to help reduce the urgency especially at night. Endometrial tissue can be found outside of the uterus and can cause/contribute to your symptoms.
How are you feeling?
Have you scheduled an appointment to have another Cysto?
