    I have all the initial symptoms for IC, but am still waiting on a definitive diagnosis from my urologist, who is treating me for 2 weeks for urethritis to rule it in or out. In the past month, I've had one episode of very bad bladder pain and burning, with soreness for about a week after. One day of living with the "bowling ball" in my abdomen, and pain when bending. I've had the urethral burning on and off for weeks. I feel better after a couple of weeks of the IC diet plan, but since I have begun moving around more, I also have a terrible lower back pain. I swear it feels more like an itch than a pain, and runs through my body to the front, into the anus and the crotch area, and gets much more irritating the more I move around, or walk. Does this sound like anything anyone has experienced in relation to IC?

    Also, my husband is a great support, but I have always been the nurturer in my family, and find this awfully hard to get used to.

    Back Pain

    Right now I am having a lot of pain from the L4 and it runs down my thigh My bladder is having fits. I wish I knew which comes first (the chicken or the egg). The Uro wants to treat the bladder with instills. The PT is treating the back and the Chriropactor is adjusting the pelvis. All they can come up with is stretching and ice. The neurologist says it's refered pain, but from where???

    Well, my friends, keep up your spirits and be thankful we have IC friends who understand.

    Nerve Damage

    Nerve damage can occur with any type of trauma to the nerve. What is going to insult a nerve is pretty individual. It can be from surgery, a fall, childbirth, lower back injury, or surgical procedure, hysterectomy. It can be different for all of us. I once fell off a concrete wall and injured my coccyx. It was two years before it felt better and referred pain down my leg and into my bladder which became overactive.
    Referred pain can come from the pelvic floor and you would swear it was in your urethra or bladder. Referred pain is common, and that is why it is so hard to figure out where pain is coming from down "there."
    As for a cysto/hydro I cant think of anything more traumatic to a delicate bladder than stretching it to "capacity." Some studies have shown that even a normal bladder will bleed under such expansion (duh). Even shoving instruments up the urethra does not make for a happy day.
    Surgeons all have a different level of care, and skill. Bodies are all unique in what they will put up with before they rebel.
    I am 9 weeks out from a hysterectomy and my body went into an absolute hissy fit after the surgery and is just now beginning to calm down. I think my bladder was terrified it was going to be "next" and was really overactive from hysteria. Now it is starting to calm down. I am going in for accupuncture this Friday.

    Hi Sami...do you know if it was possible to have this nerve damaged by a cysto/hydro/biopsy? Because that is when my nerve irritation started. Just wondering if anybody knows...thanks.

    Accupuncture

    What you all are describing is a accupuncture meridian which runs from the toes, through the foot, up the back of the leg and into the bladder. When I have accupuncture they put needles all along this meridian. Main nerves run all along this area.

    I know...my doctor also says the two cannot be related, because there are no nerves that travel from the bladder to the foot. I do not believe this to be true. It all started after my cysto/hydro/biopsy!!!

    Wow, I'm amazed at the relation between the two problems. Sarojini's explanation seems plausible! Even if the doctor's don't believe you.

    I've had that since my hydro also and it now signals a flare for me. As soon as my foot starts going off, I know I'm headed for a doosie of a flare!
    My doctor refuses to believe they are related so I don't know what to do.

    Hi there
    How you feeling? If its any consolation I got these symptoms after my cysto too but I still have them a year on and will NEVER have one again.

    My neurologist said its nerve damage to the pudendal nerve which is a risk...great

    It was after, I haven't had the pain in my foot for about a week now

    Sounds like your sacral nerve got irritated... this nerve starts right above your butt crack in the spine, goes through the pelvis, and then branches and goes down the leg to the foot. It is responsible for some of the feeling in your bladder and also your foot... so, if one place in the nerve gets irritated (namely, your bladder area) your brain can interpret it as coming from your foot as well. Our bodies are brilliant but also silly!

    I have the Interstim sacral nerve stimulator to control my frequency from IC, and the electrical stimulation from the device can be felt in my crotch/bladder area... but also, I can sometimes feel it in my foot, tingling away.

    This shouldn't be a permanent problem for you, and will probably go away as your bladder heals up from the hydro --- but if it gets worse or doesn't go away in a week or so, definitely talk about it to the doctor!

    Hello Sarojini,

    Thanks for responding. Do you have any idea how this nerve could have gotten irritated from the cysto/biopsy? Is it just a natural side effect of the procedure that you know of? If you don't know, that is okay...I was just curious to know. Thank you.

After about 3 days I stopped getting that pain in my foot. It's also helped with the pain in my lower back that I've had since Sept.
