If AZO/Pyridium doesn't help, does this mean that what I have is PFD and not IC?

    Pyridium can be a huge help if the problem is irritation of the bladder lining --- sometimes it's a huge help, especially if there's infection present. The fact that it didn't help may be a clue, and definitely tell your doctor at your appointment, but doesn't necessarily rule out IC. When I have a flare, I have bladder spasms, which involves the bladder muscles.

    Having a medical problem and not having a diagnosis is awful --- I understand --- my absolute worst time with IC was before diagnosis.

    I took a total of 4 AZO tablets, and it made no difference to my urgency. Azo is supposed to numb the bladder. If my bladder is numb and I still experience urgency, does it make sense that my problem has to do with the muscles near my bladder, and not the bladder itself?
