Pelvic pain and back pain. Doctors say no source and diagnosed interstitial cystitis. Is this correct?

In brief: Possibly
Interstitial cystitis pain is usually pelvic and often at its peak when your bladder is full and somewhat relieved by urinating.
Usually associated with frequent urination and urinating at night. Symptoms are increased with caffeine or acid urine producing beverages such as oj or foods such as tomato sauce or paste. Can be lessened with a bland diet. Check out the interstitial cystitis website.

In brief: Pelvic and back pain
This is difficult to say without knowing what tests were performed.
A full pelvic, abdominal and lumbar spine examination along with pelvic ultrasound and urinalysis should be performed. Also knowing when , in what circumstances and timeof month this occurs would help. Your age and menstrual status would help differenciate possible cause.

In brief: Trigger points!!
This is a new look at an old idea.
Janet g. Travell, md a pain pioneer concluded that chronic tissue pain was caused by numerous trigger points in muscle fibers causing the muscles to contract compressing nerves, vessels and alter the flow of lymphatics. The pyramidalis and pelvic floor muscles are the cause. So this is a mechanical cause and requires a manual treatment. Acupuncture! see files.
