When I was first diagnosed with I.C., my symptoms were very bad. I was in constant pain that was excruciating, the pressure and pain in my pelvic area was so bad I could hardly walk, and it burnt constantly when I would urinate. Now my symptoms are very minimal, except that I still urinate many, many times during the day.
I wonder why when the disease first starts, the symptoms are so much worse and then it seems the longer a person has I.C., the symptoms seem to subside. Don’t get me wrong – I am very glad it is like this.
I just don’t understand why. Now I do have periods where my symptoms will get worse, but nothing compared to what they were when I first became ill with I.C.
I have talked to others with I.C. and they report the same thing. I know that there is those whose symptoms do not subside, but the majority of I.C. patients do.
