The Real Nightmare – IC

Painful bladder syndrome, or interstitial cystitis, is a chronic disease. Patients who have it, feel pain in the bladder, in the pelvic region, rapid urination and frequent nighttime urination. Interstitial cystitis (IC) often occurs in women and leads to a significant decrease in the quality of life.

Symptoms of IC
Symptoms of interstitial cystitis are different for each patient. Also, the symptoms can change and increase, for example, during menstruation period, sitting for a long time, during stress or sexual intercourse.

The symptoms are:

• pain in the pelvic area or perineum area;
• chronic pelvic pain;
• a constant, unbearable urge to urinate;
• frequent urination, often in small portions. Patients with severe symptoms can urinate up to 100 times a day;
• frequent night urination;
• pain and discomfort during the filling of the bladder. Usually emptying the bladder brings relief;
• pain during intercourse.

Treatment
There is no single accepted treatment regimen for interstitial cystitis. Most often, this is a comprehensive treatment. And it may take time before the doctor chooses an individual therapy with good effect. The main methods of interstitial cystitis treatment are:

Medication Therapy
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, help reduce pain syndrome.
Tricyclic antidepressants can help relax the bladder and relieve pain.
Antihistamines, help reduce the symptoms of frequent urination and remove the strong urges.

Nervous stimulation
Neuro-stimulation. During the procedure, the electrodes are placed on the surface of the skin. Electrical impulses increase the blood flow to the bladder and strengthen the muscles, which allows you to better control your bladder, to restrain the urge to urinate. Electrodes are installed either in the lumbar region or above the bosom – the time and duration of treatment are selected individually.

Surgical methods of treatment
Electrocoagulation or laser coagulation of the bladder ulcer (with the ulcerative form of cystitis)
Minimally invasive surgery, the essence of which is the removal of the bladder ulcer.

Surgical treatment of interstitial cystitis is extremely rare. However, it is indicated for those patients who do not have therapeutic therapies, the pain syndrome leads to a sharp decrease in the quality of life.
