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

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.

The pyramidalis and pelvic floor muscles are the cause. So this is a mechanical cause and requires a manual treatment. Acupuncture! see files.
