Painful Bladder Syndrome
Sometimes Mistaken for a UTI
Painful bladder syndrome, also known as Interstitial Cystitis (IC) has symptoms that sometimes mimic a bladder infection. Symptoms may flare up and then disappear for periods of time, but any person with ongoing pain or discomfort in the bladder and pelvic area who needs to use the bathroom frequently, should visit a specialist for diagnosis and proper treatment. Dr. Tessa Krantz is a urogynecologist at Urology Associates and an expert in treating women with IC and pelvic pain.
