Does IC cause pubic area and lower abdomen swelling?

So today my bladder is cramping, the pubic area is swollen and so is my lower abdomen. Seems my bladder is just not emptying correctly. I haven’t had IC for so long. I’ve tried everything from heat massage to aloe Vera, nothing helps. Feels like I have to go every 20 minutes. I know my pelvic floor is very tight too. Anyone else have this? What do you do?

Interstitial cystitis or bladder pain syndrome is a chronic bladder condition that presents with the subjective feeling of pain or pressure in the bladder. Lower urinary tract symptoms accompany the pain in the absence of urinary tract infection. The exact cause of this pain syndrome is unknown and treatment is individualized according to symptomatology.
