    Whether they require a referral depends on the clinic and your insurance coverage.

    There are some pain clinics in my area, one of which lists IC on their website as a condition that they treat. I think I am going to reach out on Tuesday and see if they can help me. This pain is all I can think about, it is overruling everything else in my entire life.

    I am debating with the same. Some days I get a shooting nerve pain in the urethra and pernium and feel like I need a pain pill. It's not everyday. I don't need referrals with my insurance either and am struggling to find the right pain clinic.
