My IC symptoms are urinary pain, pressure, urgency, pelvic pain. The usual way of diagnosing IC is through cystoscopy, dr. looks for ulceration inside the bladder. For my case, my uro. could not see anything abnormal with my bladder lining but I have responded well to DMSO cocktail treatments and also have had the IC symptoms.
