Chronic pain in your urinary bladder is most commonly caused by infection. When tests performed are negative, such as in your case, tests should be performed to examine whether you have a neurogenic condition, which means that it is caused by a nerve problem. The length of time and lack of positive test results so far, make this more likely.

Pain not cause by infection could be many things. Most likely you have a reflux or divertulum. Possibly kidney stones or other causes. Get the cysto, its not that bad.

Make sure you are drinking enough liquids each day, especially if your urine is yellow or dark. Be sure to review all the medications you are taking with your doctor, including herbs and vitamins. Also, tell you doctor any changes you have made in your diet lately, including new foods.

This may be caused by a cyst in the urinary tract, or a urinary tract infection or a combination of the two. It would definitely help to have an MRI as well as an ultrasound proceedure.
