Let me begin by saying that I do not have a long history of UTIs. I've only had three in my life. I had one in junior high, one in high school, and I just got over one recently. However, about three months ago I experienced some symptoms of a UTI. Kind of frequent urination (every hour or so), slight burning (not as strong as that of a full blown UTI), and a feeling of pressure in my pelvic region. I've had many urinalyses done and they all came out negative. Except for the test I've had two weeks ago which indicated I had an actual UTI.
These vague UTI-like symptoms come and go, but I definitely experience them every month. I don't really have the debilitating abdominal pain that most people with IC experience though. It's still a bothersome condition that affects my life. It feels like my life is revolved around the restroom and I am not truly living to the fullest.
Is it possible that this is still a case of IC? I've also have endometriosis tossed at me.
