Interstitial cystitis

Interstitial cystitis (also called painful bladder syndrome) is a condition that causes pain when your bladder is full. You may also have to urinate (wee) often. It is more common in women than men. It can often take a while to diagnose because it has similar symptoms to a urine infection.
