  • Bladder Feels "itchy"

    Does anyone else have a feeling that their bladder "itches"? I mean on the INSIDE, not on the outside. I can't stand this. I feel like I have to go up my urethra with a toothbrush, and scratch the heck out of my bladder...sorry so graphic, no other way to describe it! Thank you.

    I would describe if more of a very low-grade burning, but yes I suppose I could think of it as itching.

    Instead of the toothbrush I visualise smearing vaseline inside of my bladder, but different strokes for different folks

    My IC story- diagnosed at age 15 (Feb 2004), after approx. 6 mos of symptoms. Went into near complete remission following hydrodistention and introduction of meds. Feeling so good that I started skipping meds (bad idea). 1 week flare (May 2006). New flare November 2006-present.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    My triggers- I'm not sure about food triggers, just started IC diet but so far doesn't seem to be doing much. Stress is a big trigger for me though. Both flares this year came during stressful times. I think that stress reduction will help me immensely (last flare went AWAY during vacation in Mexico when I was drinking margaritas like they were water;P).

      Yes I have the itchy feeling too. It's so annoying I don't have any pain just bladder irritation every day.

        Hi,
        I, too, have that itchy bladder thing going on. I actually rub the other area and press in just a little while doing so and for whatever reason it helps.

            That's what I do too! It kind of feels like your vaginal opening, but it isn't, it's actually the urethra and bladder itching inside! I press on it too, just to disturb the "pain" signals...

                yeast

                I have had an on-going yeast infection for weeks and nothing seems to work. It's getting quite annoying. Just moved to a new town and do not have a doctor yet. Anyone have any ideas for me?
