Sensitive bladder

I have such an extremely sensitive bladder, that everything I eat or drink seems to affect it instantly and makes it sore. I do not drink tea or coffee or other things except water or milk for this reason. Eating fruit affects it badly because of the acid in fruit.
I find if it gets inflamed, that seems to lead to leakage. If it settles down, no leakage then.
What can I do to make it less sensitive to becoming inflamed from eating or drinking normal things. It rules my life.
Thank you, Karen

Have you tried to make the urine more alkaline - commercially available sachets are available from most pharmacies. Other options include taking a medication like Cimetidine which acts on the histamine receptor system - this will need to be prescribed. If you have tried simple measures then seek a referral to a urologist.
