hello tricia76. i was wondering when you were diagnosed with ic? i have it as well, and my doctor who is a specialist @ BWH in boston,mass. and i had every symptom of ic, and the only way they can tell if infact you have it, is a simple procedure and home the same day. so, results came back as ic. my doctor put me on a medicine call Elmiron (100mg) 3x daily. it has succesfully helped my ic, but i do still have flare up's very far apart. i can tell the difference from a UTI & IC. i'm so sorry you have to suffer with it. but i would suggest asking your dr. about the Elmiron as it has done wonder's for me. good luck in the future.
