Less frequent symptoms of cystitis

    1. Pollakiuria (little urine, frequently)
    2. Hematuria (blood in the urine)
    3. Dysuria (difficulty peeing)
    4. Chills, fever and cold
    5. Diarrhea, nausea and vomiting
    6. How to solve the less frequent symptoms of cystitis


Friend, cystitis is a condition that manifests itself differently in each of us.

The traditional list of cystitis symptoms is not always exhaustive: some less frequent but no less important symptoms.

Today I’m going to explain these cystitis symptoms and the underlying mechanisms that cause them..

Don’t forget. I’m always available to have a chat together if you need my help with your cystitis 😊


Polliachiuria: frequency of urination and little urine

When you have cystitis, you lose track of the number of times you go to the bathroom.
Or you don’t even need to count: the need to pee is so frequent that you spend your days sitting on the toilet.

Am I right?

These constant “summonses” to the bathroom are known as poultryuria.

Poultryuria increases the number of times you feel the need to pee (urination frequency). The emission of urine accompanies this increase in reduced quantities.

Why does poultryuria occur during cystitis?

Poultrychiuria is, in fact, impairment of normal bladder function caused by cystitis.

This alteration can be traced to two causes:

  1. Inflammation of the bladder causes the bladder muscle to contract.
    The contraction reduces the capacity of our bladder, lowering the threshold beyond which we feel the need to pee;
  2. Inflammation and contraction also alter the function of bladder receptors.
    These receptors will send signals to our brain that the bladder is full even when it is not full (hence the reduced amount of urine).

Hematuria: blood in the urine

During a cystitis attack, you may have noticed that the color of your pee was red.

What alters the normal color of urine is red blood cells, those cells that give our blood its typical red color.

Hematuria is a few drops of blood in the urine.


Hematuria may not show up as visible: lood drops can be detected through urinalysis. In these cases, we speak of microhematuria.

What are the causes of hematuria during cystitis?

Again, it all starts with inflammation of the bladder.

Inflammation causes dilation of the blood vessels that supply the inner wall of the bladder. This dilation involves, first of all, the entry of leukocytes (or white blood cells) into the bladder, whose task is to defend us from the attack of pathogens.

If, however, the inflammatory process becomes consistent, the dilation of the blood vessels will be such that it will also facilitate the passage of red blood cells (with a larger diameter than that of leukocytes) into the bladder.

If you have haematuria, don’t be frightened but consult your doctor for ad hoc treatment!


Dysuria: difficulty in peeing

Have you ever felt a sensation of “broken glass” or “needles poking you” when you pee?
Or have you ever literally felt pain or a fire that pervades you?

The term “dysuria” sums these unpleasant symptoms up.

Dysuria, during an acute attack of cystitis, is the sensation of:

  • pain and burning;
  • itching
  • “pins” or “sharp glass”

when you pee.

These sensations are located right in the urethra, the little tube that carries urine out of our bladder.

What causes dysuria?

It will seem repetitive, but in this case, the cause must be traced back to the contraction of the bladder muscles, along with those movements of the urethra that allow us to urinate(peristalsis).

  • The contraction of the bladder muscles and
  • urine that comes into contact with the inflamed bladder walls

stimulate pain receptors and leads us to perceive twinges, burning, itching, difficulty in the emission of pee and all those sensations that are often compared to sharp objects.

Chills, fever and cold

Fever during cystitis indicates that your body is trying to fight off the bacterial infection.
You may also notice alternating sensations of warmth and cold and shivering.

The rise in body temperature is not accidental, although not frequent in cases of cystitis: your body creates, in fact, a hostile environment for the survival of “bad” bacteria.

Let the fever take its natural course, and don’t lower your temperature with DIY remedies. If you sweat a lot, reduce the layers of clothing you wear and make sure you drink plenty of water to make up for lost fluids.

The feeling of cold and shivering is the natural consequence of a greater flow of blood to those organs responsible for fighting the infection at the expense of other parts of the body, which will become cold and a bit ‘cadaveric’(let’s play it down).


Diarrhea, nausea and vomiting

Diarrhea, nausea and vomiting associated with episodes of cystitis can have two precise explanations:

  • If back pain, fever and chills accompany them, they could be signs that the infection is moving up from the bladder to the kidneys(pyelonephritis). Kidney infection is absolutely serious and should not be underestimated!
  • If typical kidney infection symptoms do not accompany them, they could be your body’s response to the pain or tension and anxiety triggered by cystitis.


How to solve the less frequent symptoms of cystitis?

My friend, there’s no medicine for every symptom listed.

Only by acting on the cause of your cystitis andrestoring the well-being of your bladder can you find relief, in a lasting way, from these symptoms.

Why not make your search easier and faster with our help? Write to us now.

There’s a catch.

Yes, because it is possible to find respite from symptoms more closely related to the urinary tract, even during an attack of cystitis: pain, burning and heaviness can be kept at bay with the help of the ingredients of Dimann Flogo.

Its assumption has a double advantage because besides soothing the symptoms, n-acetylcysteine allows weakening the pathogenic bacteria depriving them of their protective shield (the so-called pathogenic biofilm).

I always recommend having Dimann Flogo on hand: think of those times when cystitis occurs violently and suddenly in the evening.
The temptation to take the first available antibiotic in the house is great.
The pain and burning are unbearable, and you would like nothing more than to turn them off for good.

You often give in, and you take the first antibiotic you have on hand without having the patience to wait until the next day to do a urinalysis.

That’s where the Dimann Flogo can make all the difference: support to relieve nasty symptoms during the hours between you and urine collection 😉


A hug!
