Bladder Pain Syndrome

Bladder pain syndrome (BPS) can sometimes be mistaken for a urinary tract infection (UTI) because of similar symptoms. However, unlike UTIs, BPS is not caused by bacteria and can be a chronic condition.

Symptoms of BPS:

  • Pain or pressure in the bladder and pelvic region
  • Frequent urination (urinary urgency)
  • Pain during urination
  • Difficulty emptying the bladder completely

Challenges and Management:

Diagnosing BPS can be complex because there’s no single test to confirm it. However, a urologist can perform a thorough evaluation to rule out other conditions and develop a treatment plan to manage your symptoms. Treatments for BPS may include:

  • Lifestyle modifications: Dietary changes, stress management techniques, and pelvic floor muscle exercises can all be helpful.
  • Medications: Certain medications can help relax the bladder muscles and ease pain.
  • Physical therapy: Pelvic floor physical therapy can strengthen the muscles supporting the bladder.
