    ginaaa22,

    Hi I have a few off topic questions....

    yu take Cystoprotek - how did it start out for you? Was there a lot of urgency and frequency? And how do you feel about the Neurontin? I hear all kinds of stuff about it.

    Thanks,
    Shamay

    I had trigger point injections to treat my IC. They did not help and they hurt really bad. I have also had pudendal nerve blocks 3 of them a month apart and they didnt help.

    I have not had trigger point injections for IC but I have had several intraritcular injections in my hip. It is a trigger point injection into the hip joint. It is done under fluoroscope. A 25g spinal needle is inserted into the groin area next to the femoral artery and guided into the hip joint. The steroid cocktail is then injected directly to the spot of the decayed femoral head. I don't know if the procedure for the trigger point injections similar to this or not.

    Unrelated to my question but related to 'trigger points', I found this interesting (excerpt - authors Paul Ingraham & Tim Taylor, MD).

    Not sure if this should be going in the forums to do with pelvic floor physiotherapy??? But I'm confused re: instills & urologist's reference to 'trigger point injections' so I'll leave it here for now...

    Trigger points are good, hard science

    Trigger points are not a flaky diagnosis. This isn’t hippie health care! You can:

    take photomicrographs of TrPs
    measure their electrical activity
    take samples of their acidic and toxic tissue chemistry
    and a new MRI-like technology can now show them as well

    Trigger point injections

    In a consult to another specialist, my urologist wrote that I'd be getting trigger point injections.

    I read up on them after he said that, and from what I read, I understood that after poking and prodding around, the most sensitive spots were identified (bladder? pelvic floor) and then something was injected into those spots. I think of 'injections' as needles - I haven't seen any needles or specific-spot targeting with anything, on my body, that I'm aware of. But today when I asked the urologist, he said that the instillations I've been getting have been trigger point injections. Now I'm really confused.

    I get two kinds of instillations - the heparin/lidocaine/sodium bicarbonate ones ('rescue cocktail'), and the Uracyst. But they just get put in the bladder with the catheter.

    Can anyone help clarify, based on their own experiences? How can the instillations I've been getting be trigger point injections?
