Bladder pain syndrome (BPS) displays a range of symptoms including the frequent need to urinate, the urgent need to urinate and bladder pain. Symptoms and pelvic pain vary -  the most severe is Interstitial Cystitis (IC) (unlike bacterial cystitis which is a urinary tract infection that is quickly treated). Pain levels vary from mild to agonizing pain, and this pain typically worsens after urination. (Double Voiding technique may help).

The causes of Bladder pain syndrome remain a mystery, some link it to stressful events, and others relate it to pelvic surgery. Some link it to excessive soda drink consumption, some to coffee/tea caffeine consumption. The common link here is an irritation to the bladder wall. Recent studies have isolated a substance present in a Painful bladder (APF) that may be responsible for blocking the normal growth of bladder cells. Painful bladder is also closely associated to IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
