I am in this situation. Yes, I had anxiety/depression issues all my life but only IC for nearly 4 years. The more I know the more I realize I have had IC symptoms all my life in in some stage or another. Now here is the depression part...I struggle with IC pain. I have tried almost everything. My doctor keeps sending me to my psychiatrist. He has me on antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds. Still no luck. Now he is suggesting shock therapy. I feel like they just don't get my pain. Now my GP is thinking it may be a reasonable option. I guess it is my fault for expressing how down I really felt. So I wait for the pain clinic and hope I do not give in to shock treatment...
