Unhappy Interstitial Cystitis?????

I have had problems with my bladder, kidneys, and urethra (sp?) tubes since I was born.. I actually have had sugery on one urethra when I was about 7 it was too large for my size, and everytime I urinated some urine splashed back up onto one of my kidneys, and damaged it horribly. The Doctor said he corrected it 80% so there was still that 20% that it could become enlarged. For being only 17 I've had serveral UTI's and 2 yeast infections, I was even put on an antibiotic for a year and about 2 years ago I kept waking up in the middle of the night with my bladder aching from needing to urinate so badly I usually went before bed also. Well after about a week of that happening every night it went away. Until now it happended again the last two nights and I have random burning, and when I urinate (about 3-5 times an hour) the feeling comes on intensely then when I'm just about done urinating its a horrible pain starting from the opening all the way up into my pelvic/bladder area, I can almost feel the pain moving. The pain goes away then it throbbs in my bladder on and off for some time. I don't think it's another UTI because I just had one last month and finished my antibiotics, it's been clear since then, once in a while my urine gets very dark, then the next time I go, its fine. Can someone PLEASE help me... I'm ready to figure out what is wrong, my whole life has been dealing with these things.

Re: Interstitial Cystitis?????

It's been a while since your post so I not sure what you've found out since posting this. I hope that you've seen your urologist about your symptoms. About the burning with urination. There are over the counter pills called Azo Standard which deal with urinary burning. You very well could have IC...but you need to be diagnosed.

Good Luck!
