Does anyone have PBS? I had a cystoscopy that did not show any signs of Interstitial Cystitis, but I have the pain (like a bladder infection) nontheless. Is there anyone out there with similar symptoms?

  • Yes, I do. It feels like I have a continual bladder infection, but tests are always negative. I have had a complete urological workup. No cause could be found and I was told I just had to "live with it." What have you found?

  • I am also going through the same thing but i also have very mild interstitial cystitis and am now experiencing constant yeast infections on top all the bladder symptoms. The doctors give you NO answers. I am so frustrated!

  • I have the same thing. I have been to a urologist in the past that chalked it up to UTI's. Now am having symptoms but they are telling me I have no infection. Will be seeing a urologist soon.

  • Hi, I have suffered on & off for 5 years now with cystitis like symptoms, which includes blood in my urine, all tests come back negative. I had periods of relief after the birth of both my children, but they have reappeared and the pain is sometimes unbearable. I had a cystoscopy yesterday, but was told all looked fine, nothing cancerous, bladder normal size; although there was some signs of hemorrhage on the bladder wall. They streached my urethra in the hope that this will help. (I wait in hope)I have been searching the internet today and found some information. Although no definate answers the advice on managing the pain, plus treatments may help.http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/kudiseases/pubs/interstitialcystitis/Good luck to you all.
