  • What causes burning sensation AFTER urinating?

    I'm a long-time IC sufferer, goiing through a flare right now. My main symptom this time is BURNING...not while peeing, but AFTERWARDS, for about 15 mins, then it gradually fades. Does anyone experience this, and know what causes it? Is it muscle spasms, urine being too concentrated, nerves inflamed, or something else? Any insight is appreciated!

      I suspect it's spasms. Are you drinking enough water?

        I also get this when I flare. I just assumed it was part of the flare? When I notice this happening I sit with the heating pad on that area and it always helps. Some people prefer ice pack on the area.

          I have had this for years. Happens after pee whole crotch feels like an intense mint burn sensation. Sometimes heating pad helps sometimes not.
