        <img src="graemlins/lmao.gif" border="0" alt="[lmao]" /> Hello everyone! I live in TN. about an hour away from nashville and I have never meant anyone else with I.C. (I live in a small town) anyway I need to find a good doctor that can treat my pain.. I have had I.C. for two years now and I am still searching for someone who knows what they are doing as far as treatment options. If anyone could help me or maybe if I could talk to someone that lives close by it would be great! thanks a lot!!

          thanks for answering. I live in the suburbs of Memphis,TN in Cordova, TN. Are you between Nashville and Memphis or on the other side? (or north or south of Nashv. Memphis has some good I.C. doctors. My husband works in Portland TN just north of Nashville during the week. I would guess Nashville has some good urologists also. Glad to see there are a number of Tenneseans posting to the boards.
          Good luck,

I found a pain doctor in Nashville that I was going to but I really need to find a good Urologist that will treat my pain (if I can) thank you for responding to my message.

                      I live in Chattanooga, Tennessee and I don't know a soul who has IC. I'm having a hard time finding a Dr. who will treat my IC flare ups that always come right before my period. The Dr.s treat you like you're a junkie let them suffer with an IC flare for a day....You can e-mail me at [email protected] [img]cool.gif[/img]
                      You did what you knew how to do, but when you know better you did better.

                        yes I know exactly how you feel. When I first got diagnosed, I asked my urologist for something to control the extreme pain I was feeling, and she told me that she wasnt going to support a drug addict! I am twenty years old and I have never done anything I dont even drink. It made me realize what a long road I had in front of me. Doctors can make you really feel like YOUR the one with the problem.
                        I am sorry I cant help you with finding a doctor I am still looking for a good one that takes my insurance.
                        But hang on and hopefully everything will work out.Good luck to everyone!

                          Hello to all! <img src="graemlins/hi.gif" border="0" alt="[hi]" />

                          So happy to see the postings from all over Tn. I am in the suburbs of Memphis. We have lived in the Memphis area since '95. From what I can see, there are a bunch of us in Tn. and the surrounding areas.

                          lyse3...I am going to try to e mail you again. The last one I sent bounced back to me telling me that you had exceeded your storage allocation and that service was unavailable. Hopefully, this time it will go through to you.

                          tt1gw...We lived in Cleveland, Tn for about 8 years. Beautiful part of the state.

                          Jaime15...What can I say about the Knoxville area except "beautiful, beautiful, beautiful".

                          Cricket...Howdy neighbor!!!

                          Linsay82...The area between Nashville and Knoxville is absolutely beautiful.

                          Sissy...I am not all that familiar with the area around Yazoo City. Where in the state is it located?

                          Faycarole...I do not think I have ever been in Elora.

                          sapp...New Albany is a mystery to me, also.

                            I live in beautiful Midtown Memphis! But I grew up in the burbs of Cordova. I am a graduating senior at the U of M and live in the Aneesdale Park historic district with my 4 year old daughter and our crazy little dog Teddy.

                            Glad to see someone is so close! Who is your dr?
