Hi everyone, After reading so many of these post, I realized that most of you have had almost if not all the same symptoms that I have had and have. For 6 months a year ago I kept having the burning, itchy, stinging, white discharge and pain in the clitoris. I went to see my gyno often. We ran lots of test which all came back negative. Gave me medicines and creams which never helped. Finally, he decided and referred me to a Urologist. So I meet with him and he went over my records and decided that I should have surgery. The procedure was called a Cystoscopy. He performed the surgery by inserting a tiny scope through my urethra which would examine my bladder and everything around that. Once I woke up from my anesthesia he said I have what you call Interstitial Cystitis also know as IC which Interstitial cystitis (IC) is a painful condition due to inflammation of the tissues of the bladder wall. The cause is unknown. IC is often misdiagnosed as a urinary tract infection. Patients can go years without a correct diagnosis. On average, there is about a 4-year delay between the time the first symptoms occur and the diagnosis is made. The condition is most common around ages 30 to 40, although it has been reported in younger people. Women are 10 times more likely to have IC than men. He gave me antibiotics to help get rid of the infection in the bladder and it did, but did tell me that it can come back anytime because IC can not be cured. Right now I am suffering from it again and I have to call my doctor tomorrow to see what he can give me. I hope that I have answered some of your posts. I know how frustrating this can be to not know what is wrong with you and feeling so darn crappy. Here is a link that will explain a little more what IC is and tells you the right diets to be on for it. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001508/ I really hope that this helps all of you and is the answer to your problems. Please let me know :)
