Question Is This Really IC? (Interstitial Cystitis)

I recently had a cystoscopy because of having difficulty urinating for almost a year. When they filled my bladder with water (no anesthesia) it was extremely uncomfortable and the maximum capacity that I could tolerate was well under normal. From the appearance of the bladder wall (lots of engorged, knotted blood vessels) the urologist felt that I likely have IC. He prescribed something that is supposed to help with frequency, urgency and painful urination. But, I barely have frequency, and do not have urgency or painful urination - just difficulty and a weak stream. Do you think this really is IC? (I do not take any medicines for pain, so it is not related to medicine, unless Tryptanol affects it.)
