Interstitial cystitis, abbreviated IC, is a bladder condition causing bladder pressure, bladder pain and sometimes pelvic pain. The pain level can range from mild discomfort to severe depending on the individual. The condition of interstitial cystitis is a part of a broad group of bladder diseases known as painful bladder syndrome. While IC can be misdiagnosed as bladder cancer, urinary tract infections, bladder infections and kidney stones it is also becoming a commonly known illness due to its’ link to vision loss, blindness and maculopathy as a result of the bladder pain syndrome and IC drug Elmiron.

Bladder Pain Syndrome & Interstital Cystitis
In humans the bladder is a hollow, muscular organ used for storing urine. The bladder expands until it’s full and then signals your brain that it’s time to urinate, communicating through the pelvic nerves. This creates the urge to urinate for most people.
With interstitial cystitis, these signals get mixed up — you feel the need to urinate more often and with smaller volumes of urine than most people.
Interstitial cystitis most often affects women and can have a long-lasting impact on quality of life. Although there’s no cure, medications and other therapies may offer relief.
