Cystitis is an inflammation of the bladder, and urethritis is an inflammation of the urethra through which the bladder empties. Seizures can be sudden and short-lived or chronic and long-lasting. We can find them in people of both sexes and in all age groups, but women of generative age are 10 times more likely to get it than men. Most urinary tract infections occur in otherwise healthy women.
Inflammation of the bladder manifests itself as a constant urge to urinate, accompanied by penetrating and burning pains. The most common cause is a cold or hypothermia. Bacteria can enter the bladder through the urethra and cause infection, especially in women. The cause is also bladder stones and an enlarged prostate in men. Bladder inflammation is indicated by urine that is cloudy and contains red and white blood cells. If the kidney inflammation is not cured it can cause inflammation of the renal pelvis.

Frequent inflammation of the bladder can weaken it, as well as persistent psychosocial stress that causes dysfunction of the bladder muscles, then uncontrolled urination (especially in women in later years), and due to coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise. The bladder is weakened when it cannot hold urine, and is most commonly weakened in women after childbirth or lower body surgery and in men after prostate surgery.

The onset of the disease is usually sudden. Cystitis usually causes the following symptoms: burning and feeling pressure when urinating, painful urination, frequent urination, frequent need to urinate for no real reason, need to urinate at night, dark urine where blood or pus may appear, pressure in the small pelvis and pain low back, painful intercourse, pain in the penis, groin pain, fatigue, vomiting, fever, shivering. In the elderly, mental changes or confusion are often the only signs of a possible urinary tract infection.
