Bladder pain syndrome (BPS) is a chronic bladder pain disorder that occurs in patients with no apparent cause. This article discusses the symptoms, symptoms and treatment options that are available to patients with this disease. Painful bladder syndrome is usually accompanied by pain in the center of the brain that controls urination. Symptoms are defined as symptoms that last for more than six weeks or at least six months after infection or other clear cause.

If you have persistent pelvic pain or frequent urination that indicates a urinary tract infection, talk to your urologist about bladder pain syndrome and seek advice from him or her. If you go to a doctor for persistent abdominal pain, pain in the center of the brain, or persistent bleeding, this may trigger diagnostic cystoscopy or urodynamics, and if it persists, go to a doctor for treatment.

If necessary, a cystectomy can cause bleeding or bleeding so severe that it can permanently damage the bladder, kidneys or brain. 

One possible reason is that women suffer from a chronic condition called interstitial cystitis, also known as bladder pain syndrome. While there is no clear test for bladder cancer, diagnosing painful blisters can be a long way off for many women. It requires investigation because it can behave in a variety of ways, such as chronic cystitis, urinary tract infections (UTI) and urinary incontinence.

If you have bladder pain, make an appointment with your doctor and if it is a UTI, the pain will ease after diagnosis and treatment, but it is still a very serious illness. In people with interstitial cystitis, swelling in the walls of the bladder often occurs, which can lead to bladder scarring and stiffening.
