Treatment and Management of Interstitial Cystitis
Interstitial cystitis, also known as painful bladder syndrome (PBS), is a chronic pain condition. It causes bladder pressure and pain. An individual with interstitial cystitis will feel the urge to urinate frequently but may only produce a small amount of urine. Although no known cure for interstitial cystitis yet exists, various treatment and management methods are available.
No cure for interstitial cystitis exists yet, so it is important for individuals with the condition to surround themselves with supportive family and friends. Joining a support group to hear how other people live with interstitial cystitis is also beneficial. The internet is a wealth of information and online support groups are available.
