Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder, usually caused by a bladder infection.

Cystitis is often seen as

  • Burning sensation when peeing
  • A feeling of broken glass when peeing
  • The need to urinate more frequently
  • Pain in the lower tummy and possible fevers
  • Cloudy or stronger smelling urine

It’s a common type of urinary tract infection (UTI), particularly in women, and is usually more of a nuisance than a cause for serious concern. Mild cases will often get better by themselves within a few days and can be helped by drinking plenty of water and increasing Vitamin C intake.

However, some people experience episodes of cystitis frequently and may need regular or long-term treatment, this is when it would be best to take the time to gain professional guidance.   It might be that you would be best to seek help from your GP and to ensure that any concerns over Kidney health are seen to.
