I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis two years ago, but my urologist believes that I have had this all of my life. When I look back over medical records since childhood, I was at the doctor’s office quite frequently for urinary tract infections, bladder infections, etc.
When I was first diagnosed, I could hardly walk the pain and pressure were so bad. Even drinking water would cause severe pain. I have went to the bathroom to urinate as many as 60 times in a day. Yes, that is correct. Not fun.
Again, I believe this disease is also linked to Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia.
