Mysticdoc :

Hello,

Mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

Mysticdoc :

I am sorry to hear about your distress.

Mysticdoc :

Did you have any cystoscopy or bladder scan?

Mysticdoc :

Have you seen any urologist yet?

JACUSTOMER-plc82ebz- : I had a bladder scan and they also checked my womb and ovaries and I also had a kidney scan
Mysticdoc :

was it a CT scan?

Mysticdoc :

did they put any camera inside the bladder?

JACUSTOMER-plc82ebz- : Yes that was 2 years ago, when I was pregnant in January this year they also put a camera in my bladder
Mysticdoc :

Ok.

Mysticdoc :

currently what symptoms do you have exactly?

Mysticdoc :

and what medications you are taking currently?

JACUSTOMER-plc82ebz- : Very frequent urineation sometimes feels like my bladder is tender and uncomfortable feeling underneath, could we speak on the phone please feeling really distressed
Mysticdoc :

Unfortunately we do not have phone service.

Mysticdoc :

We can continue on the chat if you wish.

Mysticdoc :

Your symptoms can be due to the very sensitive nerves in the bladder

Mysticdoc :

This is also known as painful bladder syndrone or interstitial cystitis.

Mysticdoc :

syndrome--correction.

JACUSTOMER-plc82ebz- : Solifenacin 5 mg and propranolol
Mysticdoc :

ok these medications help with the frequency but not with the pain or discomfort.

Mysticdoc :

We recommend using Pentosan sulfate.

Mysticdoc :

The brand name is Elmiron.

Mysticdoc :

This helps to clam down the inflammation inside the bladder ad the nerves.

Mysticdoc :

Normal bladder scan rule out any possibility of cancer.

Mysticdoc :

However, bacterial presence can trigger these symptoms.

Mysticdoc :

Besides Elmiron, amitriptylline is another medication that is commonly used successfully to manage painful bladder syndrome.

Mysticdoc :

This a complex condition to treat but successful treatment is possible with an experienced urologist.

Mysticdoc :

However, I will suggest you to discuss these two medications with your doctor and you will definitely see improve in your symptoms within 2 weeks.

Mysticdoc :
