I am about to go into hospital for a day case procedure to have a bladder hydrodistension and probable biopsy. However, my urogynaecologist is fairly certain I have interstitial cystitis. I am taking Amitriptyline 15 mgs at night for the pain but if I try and come off this I have a sort of urethral burning pain. I do not have frequency or urgency and no incontinence. A locum GP at my surgery (who seemed very sensible) thought it would possible be caused by having a very tight pelvic area and suggested that before my procedure I should try and see a private physio to help me relax my pelvic area and free up some of the tension. He thinks this may help a lot wit the pain especially as I work as a secretary and have to do a lot of sitting. I live in the Swindon area in Wiltshire. Can anyone recommend a women's physio who could help me. The GP said on no account to do any Kegel exercises as this will only make things worse. Any recommendation for a physio would be gratefully received.
