    I have had injections for my pfd that were injected into my vaginal wall. I can promise you that if you have had that type of injection you would remember them.

    L Thomas, what you are describing sounds like my previous uro told me about getting a type of nerve block, a ganglion impar......can't recall the rest, but he did tell me it had to be done by a anesthesiologist. I thought he called it a nerve block.

    Interesting that all these Drs use different terminology.

    I have not had trigger point injections for IC but I have had them in my hip joint.

    My injection has to be done in the hospital under Fluroscope. A 25g spinal needle is inserted in the groin next to the femoral artery. It is then guided into the hip joint and the steroid cocktail is injected at the "spot" of injury.

    instillations

    I just had an instillation on Wednesday, and was thinking I would feel better after as I had the many times before. Unfortunately I couldn't have been more wrong. I walked away with a leaking bladder and was worse for the wear. Normally they are quite helpful. My uro uses a marx/lydocaine combo. And nothing more. The cath was too big, and they used lydo to numb at insertion which usually helps because I am overly sensitive. I numbed late, and then too much. Ahh well. Now I can't empty at all. I am scheduled for botox in less than two weeks.

    I go back again for another rescue next week. And wish everyone luck with they healthy bladder quests.

    I think it's just difference in how different people describe treatments. At leat now you know what he means.

    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 places like here, 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?
