    I know. My friend just went to the doctor, and she knows that I have IC, and she noticed a poster on the wall all about it! She got me all of the pamphlets too, even though I already have them all!

    I am glad that more and more doctors are getting knowledgable about IC, though I think we a have a looooong road ahead of us still, as there are still sooo many doctors that dont even acknowledge it, and many being urologists, which is the scary thing. My gastroenterologist knows more about IC than some of the urologists even know about it. (and this is their field)Now that is sad.
    hopefully one day soon things will look up for us IC patients.

    That is just great news. I have a family doctor and his staff (which includes nurses and front office)that knows quite a bit about IC- (in fact when I was in his office on Friday I told the front receptionist that I was there for a "possible UTI but maybe for a IC flare" and she actually knew what I was talking about- and not just saying that she did) but yes, I believe that doctors are now beginning to know what it is and that we do actually have pain and its not in our heads like they use to think!

    Gosh that is good news! I was undiagnosised for 20some years. Of all the dr.s I saw in Nebraska, not one had any idea what I was dealing with or the pain I was going through. At least those being diagnosised now with IC will have more resources and better medical care. Thank Goodness! Roxie

    Carolyn,

    I dont know how you and so many others went through years of doctors thinking it was all in your heads..I know I have always had something wrong with my bladder, but never dealt with doctors, because I just thought I had a small bladder..All of you that are really an inspiration to me..

    Oh, thank heavens. I hope with all my heart that no one ever has to go through nine years of suffering (being told they're a druggie or crazy) the way I did, ever again. If I hadn't had my daughter, I'm not sure I would have been able to keep going.

    I hope all my relatives and, especially, in-laws see some of those articles!

    That is awesome news! I am so glad that we arent the only ones talking about it and that Drs and nurses saw it and are discussing it too! We have needed a break like this for a long time! I hope that IC patients and potential IC patients will be helped by this across the nation. Thanks for letting us know! (I desparately needed some good news today!)

    Hugs,
    amy

    That's so great Ronda. I know that you haven't had any pain meds in the past so I'm so happy for you!

    It would be gtreat for all Dr to come to this conclusion and maybe less IC patients would have to suffer so much.

    amen to that, god knows we are tired of going to er in pain and them saying we can't find a cause, even tho we are telling them wht it is and we just need pain relief. I still think that every rn and md should be taught that IC is a disease

    Good news from the medical field

    This is good news to me and im sure you will all feel the same.. I was talking to my GYN and had ask her if she seen the IC article in first magazine she said she did and her and her colleges were all talking about how the word IC is really getting around the medical field, she also said she was amazed at the woman who were being dg with it.. She said just in one week she had 3 patience that she referred to an Uro because they were having IC symptoms.. That just amazes me of how many woman have IC but prob dont know what they have.. I was like that for so many years..But it was refreshing to know that the name IC is being reconized more in the medical field, also she said that most good doctors are aware of the pain it causes, She knew I was in really bad pain today just because my blood pressure was through the roof.. She is not one to give pain meds but she gave me a script without even asking .. I really believe IC is becoming a well known disease..
