Neuropathic Pain in Women With Bladder Pain Syndrome


Neuropathic pain in women with bladder pain syndrome (BPS) appears to be significantly associated with the severity of bladder and bowel pain, urinary urgency, and diarrhea, according to a study from investigators in Philadelphia. Neuropathic pain also significantly worsened quality of life and was associated with higher pain catastrophizing scores when compared with a lack of neuropathic pain in women with BPS.
