That doesn't sound pleasant at all, poor you. Have you spoken to your GP about it? It definitely needs to be checked out.

Gentle hugs

I have suffered for years and yes it is connected. Sometimes it's thrush sometimes it's cystitis. I was diagnosed a few years ago with Interstitial Cystitis. Which is an inflamed bladder. It's a complete nightmare this is actually the worst part of the condition for me. I was sent for a cystoscopy after years of going back and to to the doctors . I was living on antibiotics and I still am. I go for bladder instillations every few weeks but still suffer regularly with the symptoms. It's not often mentioned on these sites although it's a nightmare it's nice to know I'm not on my own . Good luck I hope you get to the bottom of it!! Excuse the pun lol x

over the last few years I have had thrusy quite often, mine is down to my inhalers for my asthma, a spacer has hellped somewhat but I get it in my mouth and internally so I get a tablet from the doctor that clears it as I can treat it in the mouth and the other end with gels and creams but it just reoccurs as its right thtought me, doc will often give me 3 doses to take at the right intervals (you have to wait so long beteween courses) and it clears for about 6 months or longer depending on how much Im using my preventer inhaler (my asthma seems to go in cycles too ok for a year or two never realy needing inhalers then a few bad years )

I've had bouts where the delightful condition refuses to go. When it gets like that, I find a trip to the docs is necessary as a longer, stronger course of treatment is needed than what can be bought OTC. Having tried the various options available, I have found the oral treatments to be much more effective than creams or pessaries.
