In brief: Bloody urine
Interstitial cystitis is a chronic inflammation of the lining of the bladder.
The cause is not well understood (although it's most likely not an infection) and it can be difficult to treat. About a third of patients will have blood in their urine. This is not typically referred to as a "bloody discharge, " however.
