  • Can a drug addiction cause IC in offspring?

    In searching for answers in my life, I keep coming across the fact that my parents were heavy heroine users at the time my mom became pregnant with me. I have had medical problems most of my life and some of the Dr's I see suggest that my being born to drug users may have something to do with it. I have read the message boards to find something similar to this and haven't been able to find anything.
    Going through my complete medical history, I have had bladder related problems since I was about eleven. Alot of infections and urgency. It was when I experienced pain so bad I couldn't function, they dx'd me with IC. I am now in the process of being dx'd with Fibromyalgia. I also have IBS.
    I guess my question is this:
    Can IC and other related illnesses be caused by a parent who does drugs? I am sure there are alot of other things that can cause IC but I am just wondering if anyone has heard of it before. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance,

    I'm no dr Kelli but I don't think so. I think this is a disease with no explaination, it just happens. Sometimes it would be so nice to have an answer, something we could blame it on but so far, that's not possible.

    For me, I had to stop looking for the why's and had to concentrate on what I could do to get myself as well as possible.
