Hello doctor,

I have had a difficulty urinating since more than five months. I have had UTI in the past. I know this time it is not an infection as I do not have any pain or stinging. I feel my bladder is full and I feel a discomfort as I cannot empty it. I drink enough water. I have had bladder and kidney scans and another sort of scan where they inserted a camera to check the bladder. I also had a bladder scan to see how full my bladder is and despite having drank a lot of water it was not that full.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I think you are suffering from interstitial cystitis or bladder pain syndrome. It is a diagnosis of exclusion. So, when you visit your urologist, you should talk to him about this possibility.
  • He may advise cystoscopy to rule out other causes.
  • I suggest you take tablet Pentosan polysulfate one tablet twice a day for three months.
