Yet, nice to know: every life event always presents its self as a pattern of full spectrum, from none to extreme severe. ...Read more

Irritable bladder: The symptoms you describe suggest irritation of the lower urinary tract (bladder, urethra). This maybe due to infection, inflammation or pressure from something pressing on the area. Your doctor will want to rule out infection, pregnancy and growths that could put pressure on the bladder. If these have been ruled out, interstitial cystitis is possible. Your doctor can help sort this out. ...Read more
