Ways to treat painful bladder syndrome and more in this week's Mind Your Body


More patients here are being treated for painful bladder syndrome, a condition usually accompanied by a frequent and urgent need to urinate.

Doctors say the condition is still largely underdiagnosed and undertreated.

This Thursday's edition of Mind Your Body looks at the reasons behind this condition and the various ways to treat it.

It will also examine why some expectant mothers, like the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, become so ill from severe nausea and vomiting that they have to be hospitalised and offers tips on how to cope with it.
