Stem Cell Therapy for Interstitial Cystitis-Hope Medical Group

 

Interstitial Cystitis is a chronic condition characterized by a combination of uncomfortable bladder pressure, bladder pain and sometimes pain in your pelvis, which can range from mild burning or discomfort to severe pain.

 

While interstitial cystitis — also called painful bladder syndrome — can affect children and men, most of those affected are women. Interstitial cystitis can have a long-lasting adverse effect on your quality of life.

 

The severity of symptoms caused by interstitial cystitis often fluctuates, and some people may experience periods of remission. Although there's no treatment that reliably eliminates interstitial cystitis, a variety of medications and other therapies offer relief.

Symptoms

 

The signs and symptoms of interstitial cystitis vary from person to person. If you have interstitial cystitis, your symptoms may also vary over time, periodically flaring in response to common triggers, such as menstruation, sitting for a long time, stress, exercise and sexual activity.

 

Interstitial cystitis symptoms include:

 

Pain in your pelvis (suprapubic) or between the vagina and anus in women or between the scrotum and anus in men (perineal).

Chronic pelvic pain.

A persistent, urgent need to urinate.

Frequent urination, often of small amounts, throughout the day and night. People with severe interstitial cystitis may urinate as often as 60 times a day.

Pain during sexual intercourse.

Some people affected by interstitial cystitis experience only pain, and some experience pressure or discomfort along with frequent, urgent urination. Most affected people, however, experience both pain and frequent, urgent urination.

 

Although signs and symptoms of interstitial cystitis may resemble those of a chronic urinary tract infection, urine cultures are usually free of bacteria. However, a worsening of symptoms may occur if a person with interstitial cystitis gets a urinary tract infection.

Causes

 

Your bladder is a hollow, muscular, balloon-shaped organ that stores urine until you're ready to empty it. In adults, the bladder expands until it's full and then signals the brain that it's time to urinate, by communicating through the pelvic nerves. This creates the urge to urinate in most people. With interstitial cystitis, these signals somehow get mixed up, and you feel the need to urinate more often and with smaller volumes of urine than most people.

 

It's likely that many people with interstitial cystitis also have a defect in the protective lining (epithelium) of their bladder. A leak in the epithelium, for example, may allow toxic substances in urine to irritate your bladder wall.

 

Suggested but unproven factors that may contribute to interstitial cystitis include an autoimmune reaction, heredity, infection or allergy.

 

Risk factors

These factors are associated with a higher risk of interstitial cystitis:

 

Sex. Women are diagnosed with interstitial cystitis far more often than are men. Men can have nearly identical symptoms to those of interstitial cystitis, but they're more often associated with an inflammation of the prostate gland (prostatitis).

 

Age. Most people with interstitial cystitis are diagnosed during their 40s.


Other chronic disorders.
Interstitial cystitis may be associated with other chronic pain syndromes, such as irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia. Any common causal connection between these syndromes is unknown.


Complications

Interstitial cystitis can result in a number of complications, including:

 

Reduced bladder capacity. Interstitial cystitis can lead to a stiffening of the wall of your bladder and reduced bladder capacity, meaning your bladder holds less urine.

 

Lower quality of life. Frequent urination and pain may interfere with social activities, work and other activities of daily life.


Relationship troubles.
Frequent urination and pain may strain your personal relationships, and sexual intimacy is commonly affected.

 

Emotional troubles. The chronic pain and interrupted sleep associated with interstitial cystitis may cause emotional stress and can lead to depression. Likewise, having depression or anxiety can worsen symptoms of interstitial cystitis.
