  • Accidents, UTIs, medications

    Hi! I was in a car wreck a 6 months before my major symptoms of IC showed up. I also started birth control pills 2 months before symptoms, and ended up stopping them since. I've taken IBP for sore muscles and joints and it seems to bring on symptoms too. Then I was diagnoised with a UTI for three months before it was changed to IC. I'm sure all the rounds of antibiotics in a row don't do anyone any good. I've also always eaten so many of the foods that aggrevate IC symptoms. When they thought it was UTIs I was told to dring cranberry juice everyday, and I'm sure that really didn't help. I wonder if it's a combination of things that causes IC.
