Pain with urination is a common symptom seen in many different conditions. Occasionally all of us experience it when we have a urinary tract infection. It becomes problematic when it is chronic and happens every time we go to the bathroom. It may range from mild discomfort to severe pain. It is very important to distinguish between pain when the bladder gets full, pain during urination, and pain at the end of urination.
Pain during and after urination is typically related to the spasm of the pelvic floor muscles. Pain in a full bladder is caused by interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome.
