Bladder pain syndrome no laughing matter for comedian, acupuncture can help

Bladder pain syndrome (BPS) or Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a chronic bladder health issue. It is a feeling of pain and pressure in the bladder area together with frequent urination and urgency. Local comedian Ashley Corby shares with her audience as part of her standup routine, including a 5-minute bit about “shady” rest areas she has visited due to interstitial cystitis (IC).

Corby said. “I don’t want to use them because I know what those bathrooms are like and they never have toilet paper,”

“But if you have IC you don’t have the choice to just wait until the next stop. You have to take that chance that you might not ever leave that bathroom.

She has long dealt with a bladder pain syndrome known as interstitial cystitis, which was diagnosed at age 19. It is debilitating, and people weren’t talking about the bladder problems. People tend to get the sense that there is nothing they can do, but live with it and that’s really not true because there are a lot of things you can do to help increase your sense of control over the pain and reduce the frequency and urgency.

Acupuncture appears to be an effective, useful, non-invasive method in IC/BPS patients. A study reviewed a recent research papers and found that acupuncture significantly reduces the 24-h urinary frequency and pain score.
