The Connection between Interstitial Cystitis and Fibromyalgia

The Connection between Interstitial Cystitis and Fibromyalgia

There are many medical conditions that can occur with Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS). One that you need to be aware of is Interstitial Cystitis (IC). It is a chronic inflammation of the bladder that can be very debilitating for some. It occurs primarily in women, although it also can occur in men. The most common presenting symptoms of this condition include severe pelvic pain and intense burning with urination. In fact, the most common description of this syndrome is that it feels like a “urinary tract infection (UTI) that never goes away.”

A person who has IC has likely been seen by more than one healthcare professional. When their urine is checked, there is no evidence of a urinary tract infection, however, the urinary symptoms persist, and there is little or no relief from prescription antibiotics. Note that while IC can occur on its own, there is a strong connection with Fibromyalgia. In some, the symptoms of IC can precede the development of fibromyalgia symptoms.

Too many women and men are not aware of this condition, and some health professionals may not be aware either. It is important that to find a healthcare professional that recognizes the symptoms and diagnosis, and is willing to work with you to alleviate the symptoms.

Here are ideas for dealing with Interstitial Cystitis naturally.
