    I go to Uni TX Southwestern urology clinic and I feel very good about going to the Medical School. My doctor knows a lot about IC and is very familiar with different treatments, etc. If I were you I would call the urology clinic at UT and just talk with them tell them your experiences with your other doctors and ask if they have a doctor who would be willing to discuss IC/or is knowledgeable about IC. I feel sure that they do. It can't hurt to call. If you don't want to explain everything to the receptionist then ask to speak with a nurse. Also look online at the UT website and find out if there are any doctors who work with IC. Even if it doesn't say it on the website, at a medical school urology clinic you are VERY likely to find a doctor who knows how to treat/diagnose it and what your options are.

    I'd go through the International Pelvic Pain Society. You can do a search for your area. Good luck.

    ETA: It looks like Edward Stanford is the one person listed for Memphis. I've seen his name mentioned before in IC studies. He is a urogynecologist so I'm not sure he has experience with men but it would be worth it to call his office. Surely he can recommend PTs or other IC docs that do treat men if he does not.

    Need a urologist recommendation

    Can anyone recommend a urologist in Memphis, TN? Particularly one with experience diagnosing/treating IC in men? Both previous Uro's gave me an initial diagnosis of chronic prostatitis, and after failing multiple rounds of treatment both changed their diagnosis to "i dont know." I have been told by various people to go to the UT urology clinic, which is where the UT health science urology professors practice, because of its affiliation with a school. Any suggestions?

    I'm currently on elavil, and like everything else (including diet) it worked for about 2 weeks before gradually ceasing to have any effect. Tried upping the dose to 20mg but i felt like a zombie and became almost suicidal. Symptoms continue to include: urgency/frequency, occasional bladder pain (sometimes occurs after eating/drinking certain things, sometimes it occurs at random), constant pain in lower back, occasional pain in testicles, perenium pain, occasional rectal and tailbone pain, difficulty urinating. Bladder pain and spasms are always worse after urinating, and spasms can go on for hours after defacating
