Hello Friend,

Give up, sacrifice, and endure: these are verbs that connote your life when cystitis breaks out, and, punctual like a Swiss watch, it always shows up at important moments.

“Fine,” I have cystitis. Why does it have to hurt so much?

Having cystitis doesn’t just mean suffering from a medical condition. It often means experiencing pungent and obnoxious symptoms that change your mood.😔

If you’re angry, you have every right to be!

Here’s some good news though: you can always message me for support and a shoulder to lean on. 💙

Symptoms of cystitis: the most frequent symptoms

It’s “easy” to give advice and explanations when you don’t feel this pain!
You’re indeed the one trying it out, but why give up my support?

With all sincere understanding, I can offer you what I know to help you with your considerations!

Let’s start and find out in detail the most frequent and irritating symptoms of cystitis:

1. Pollakiuria, urgency and frequency of peeing

When there is a cystitis and therefore inflammation in progress, often of bacterial origin, there is alas a pressure on the bladder, to a muscle contraction and an Increased detrusor tone (the muscle that allows you to empty your bladder), which causes the annoying feeling of going to the bathroom often and urgently to urinate.😮

In addition, the menstrual cycle and the stage of pregnancy are periods of our lives that can involve greater oscillations or pressure on the bladder, leading us more easily to feel “full” and to perceive that more frequent urge to pee.

2. Nocturia, often urinating at night

Obnoxious like few, it is the symptom that forces you to get out of bed two or more times in the middle of the night, thus presumptuously interrupting your sleep. In most cases, it is caused by bacterial cystitis.

I have two dark circles under my eyes!🙈

If you suffer from this symptom, I suggest you try drinking less fluids at night and before bedtime.

3. Tenesmus, bladder weight, and sense of failure to empty

Bladder tenesmus refers to a stressful pressure and contraction of the bladder sphincter, the muscle whose function is to control the release of urine from the bladder (initiates or does not initiate the release of pee).

This causes that perception of expelling urine or not holding it in, even after peeing or with an empty bladder.

Of my bathroom, I now know by heart the number of tiles and the details of the furniture I chose years ago to furnish it!😅

4. Stranguria, bladder pain when urinating

Inflammation of the urinary tract can also cause painful, slow, intermittent, “drippy” urine output and is often dependent on contraction of the bladder sphincter, the muscle that regulates opening (when you need to pee) and closing (when you don’t need to urinate).

5. Pyuria, foul-smelling and cloudy urine

Pyuria consists of pus in the urine, making the pee take on that cloudy coloration and bad smell.
This symptom could be related to the excessive presence of nitrites or Leukocytes in the urine.

I practically hit the jackpot!

After all this rather unpleasant list, I’ll explain how to relieve the most common symptoms of cystitis 🙂

Oh, that’s what I wanted to hear!
