My doctor thinks I have Internal Cystitis. I am a 21yr old healthy female. I had a bad UTI in January that came back one more time. I finally was able to get rid of it in the beginning of February and have not had an infection since. The infection came with awful burning with urination and also frequent blatter urgency.
Now, I am having abdominal cramps on and off which my doctor thinks is caused by my pelvic muscles being tense after what happened to me. I am a little concerned as to whether or not I even have Internal Cystitis because every time I have come in with blatter and urination pain, it has been when I actually had an infection. Now, I have normal urination and no infection in my pee, just a tad bit of blood in my urine sample at the doctor.
When I read online about internal cystitis, people have so much worse symptoms than me. My doctor told me about the diet that helps internal cystitis and that flares will come from a wrong diet. But I am eating whatever I want and it doesnt seem to affect my blatter... I do drink water a lot to try and help it.
I am just really confused because she did no tests on me to determine this condition, but I don't necessarily think that my symptoms match up with it.
Symptoms: Pelvic cramps, extremely heavy period bleeding and cramps, extreme fatigue will on period, white vaginal discharge, vaginal soreness, cramps after sex
I have been tests for pregnancy, STD, yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, etc. and I am clear of all infections. I was not tested for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease or anything related to my female organs. I DO have Polysistic Ovarian Syndrome, but have not had a cyst show up yet. Not sure about now as I have not been given an ultrasound.
