What causes bladder pain? It can be caused by bacterial cystitis or urine infection. While this means that you have an irritated bladder there are no specifics as to what caused you to have bladder pain. Men and women can also go through pelvic pain, although it is a fact that women tend to suffer from bladder pain more than men. If you are having frequent bladder pain, it may be time to make an appointment with Dr. Shawket Alkhayal. He is an experienced urologist in Dubai and has extensive experience and expertise in treating this condition.
Once you visit the Alkhayal Medical Center, we will perform a clinical examination which includes a urine analysis test. The bacteria present in the test will determine whether you have a urine infection. In case of recurrent bladder pain, patients will be advised to undergo a series of tests to detect a possible cause for this condition.
Urine infection is often treated with prescribed antibiotics, and will respond well with the symptoms gradually receding within a few days. It is important that you take the full course of antibiotics for the infection to clear up completely. We will recommend a follow-up urine analysis test for patients, at the end of their treatment.
We advise patients to drink lots of water to stay hydrated, and to flush bacteria out of your system. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water every day. Avoid holding urine for long periods. The bacteria will grow, the longer the urine stays in the bladder.
