Prostatitis or IC? Please help

So I know I posted here before and asked this but I wanna make sure before I go to my new urologist Wednesday. June 25th I was diagnosed with prostatitis. Was given rapaflo, levaquin and naproxen. My symptoms were difficulty urinating, straining to start stream, feeling like I had to go badly then nothing at all came out, intense pain at the tip of my penis sometimes that I would have to take a pain killer for, frequent urination, waking up 1-2 times a night to urinate (although normal for me), lower back aches sometimes that lasted for a few minutes here and there and the occasional pain in my rectum.

I never had these symptoms. I never had blood in my urine, never had bladder pain, never had it where it hurt when my bladder was filling up, never had urgency where it felt like if I didn't pee now I wasn't going to make it (I was always able to hold it although was uncomfortable but normal if you were holding a pee for a long time).

8 weeks later on medicine (today) I really only have frequency. I'm going about 8-10 times a day anywhere between 2-4 hour intervals. I go to the bathroom then about 30 minutes later I have the feeling again but I can hold it easily for 2-4 hours then. I sleep through the night waking up about every 4-8 hours to urinate. I am 25 years old and just worried that I may have IC. I had a cystoscopy and my doctor told me that my bladder looks 100% normal and there are no signs on IC in my bladder. He also told me that the frequency is the last thing to go in prostatitis and it could take a couple months. My question is do you guys still think it could be IC? I already have been to 3 urologists and they all said I do not have IC and I'm going to a fourth one Wednesday. What do you guys think? It seems to get worse when I'm stressed and nervous or anxiety hits me. I just moved from my childhood home yesterday and the last two days I have been peeing more and the stream is not as powerful as before. Could this be cause I am under stress?

Question though also I'd liked answered.

-if I had IC would I be able to hold my urine like I can without pain for hours?
