What Are the Causes of Painful Bladder Syndrome?

Q:
What are the causes of painful bladder syndrome?

A:
The exact cause of painful bladder syndrome isn’t known, but it’s likely that many factors contribute.

For instance, people with painful bladder syndrome may also have a defect in the protective lining (epithelium) of the bladder. A leak in the epithelium may allow toxic substances in urine to irritate your bladder wall.

Other possible but unproven contributing factors include an autoimmune reaction, heredity, infection or allergy.
