You’ve heard about Cystitis, but what is it?
Maybe you’ve heard about it, you’re lucky if you haven’t, but it’s really common. Cystitis is the medical term for inflammation of the bladder and it can be caused by a bacterial infection. Bladder infections are very painful and can become a serious problem if the infection spreads to your kidneys.
Symptoms include a strong, persistent urge to urinate, a burning sensation when urinating, passing frequent and small amounts of urine, blood in the urine, cloudy or strong-smelling
urine, pelvicdiscomfort, feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen, and low-grade fever.
The usual treatment for bacterial cystitis is antibiotics. Treatment for other types of cystitis depends on the underlying cause.
