Hi everybody. I feel like the crazy lady on here searching the sites that seem to match my symptoms, and I can't seem to figure it out. I have had hematuria and a terrible irritable, painful bladder for years. I have had some atypical urine cytology tests done, that were suspicious for malignancie. I had cystoscopy, and all I heard them say they saw was squamous metaplasia and hemmorages. (excuse my spelling). I am suppose to go back to the urologist in July to do another cystoscopy and cytology test done. Well, I have been in so much pain and can't get the urology clinic to call me back,so I went to ER today. The doc there reviewed my symptoms and diagnosed me with IC. I am 42 with a complete hysterectomy, and I don't know it that matters, but I have been d ying with no diagnosis and all this pain. It feels like everyone things you are crazy. got scripts for pyridium and bactrim today. going to start them tomorrow. Hopefully this works. The bad part is , I hear on here that their is an actual test to prove if you have IC. So still, I do not know whats causing all this pain, malignancy or IC?
