PTNS- Post Tibial Nerve Stimulation

I have great success with the PTNS Treatment with decreasing my urgency and frequency. Before doing PTNS, I was going 30 times per day. Now I am only visiting the restroom 8-10 times a day which is a HUGE improvement. This treatment is not usually prescribed for IC patients, but for more for overactive bladder syndrome. However, my urologist read an article about doing the PTNS combined with the bladder rescue treatments to help IC patients (the PTNS for lowering frequency and the rescue treatments to help with the pain). It has made a big difference with my IC symptoms. Please comment below if you have questions or want to chat more about this.
