Our mothers have great taste - my name is Leslie-Anne too!
Unfortunately, I have SLE, Raynauds, RA, Sjogren's, and a host of other problems as well. My doctors have been on the fence about dx'ing IC. (It's not like I want it!)
I wanted to share something about the Raynaud's since it's getting to be "the bad season" for us... A doctor recommended me taking "red pepper flake capsules" and eating a lot of spicey food. It helps with the circulation and it made last year a little more tolerable. I'm not sure if you can manage the spicey stuff with IC...
