I can't sleep due to sensation of pressure and lowgrade pain in my bladder. It's not like cystitis I've had in the past where you can't hold onto your pee for more than 15-20 mins and then it burns when you do pee. All it is is pressure and slightly painful tingling in bladder area. But it's enough that I can't sleep. I've been googling (because I'm a masochist) and it sounds like the symptoms of something called interstitial cystitis which sounds awful. Anyone had any experience of this or anything else that causes bladder pressure?
I'm convinced it's linked to a hot wax I had a couple of weeks ago - I had a mild intermittent pain in vaginal area the next day which didn't get worse but didn't get better for last 2 weeks. Then today, out of the blue, this sensation started in bladder. It wasn't great all day but now it's worse.
Should I go to my GP with this? or try to treat at home for a couple of days and see what happens?
Hope you've managed to go to sleep. IIWY, I'd visit my GP. I don't know what interstitial cystitis is but it sounds nasty. I doubt that the wax you had was connectd to this episode, unless the waxer did something unsavoury to your urethra.
