Some people with IC/PBS find that their bladder cannot hold much urine, which increases the frequency of urination. People with severe cases of IC/PBS may urinate as many as 60 times a day, including frequent night time urination, also called nocturia.

Causes of IC have been anything from genetics, anxiety, auto-immune disease, diet-related. In fact, a large number of studies have shown avoiding cheese, yogurt, chocolates, most sour juices or fruits, coffee, tea, onions, tomatoes, processed meats and smoking, can make a difference.

Treatment of this condition is a riddle! Symptoms may disappear with a change in diet or treatments or without explanation. Even when symptoms disappear, they may return after days, weeks, months, or years. Because the causes of IC/PBS are unknown, current treatments are aimed at relieving symptoms

Other therapies include: bladder hydrodistention (over-filling the bladder with fluid while under general anaesthesia), bladder training (using relaxation techniques to train the bladder to go only at specific times), instilled medications - medicines are placed directly into the bladder. surgeries for removing ulcers, or enlarging bladder size, are all aggressive last resorts. Most patients respond to bio feedback, and lifestyle changes.

The most effective medication so far is Dr.Lee's herbal medicine "Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill". This medication is made of Chinese herbs which is netural and safe with no side effects. It can reduce pain effectively. Most of patients feel much pain relief with the medication. After the medication for three to four months, bladder get recovered and pain will go away.

Insterstitial cystitis is a condition that can restrict a person’s ability to travel, work, exercise or even have sex. It can bring on depression and be very distressing as it is difficult to diagnose. Taking herbal medicine when bladder pain troubles you could be your important step to recovery.
