    I honestly believe that IC is just a name for inflammation of the bladder, the only frustrating thing is that the doctors dont have enough knowledge yet to figure out what causes it. I believe there are many things that can cause IC, one would be a problem with the immune system possibly. Or it could be all drug related meaning that maybe some of us had to take medications in the past, maybe alot of antibiotics or something and this set us up for developing the IC. The only reason I say this is because IC did not even exsist years ago,actually alot of the diseases there are today did not exsist years back if you think about it. Now since there have been do many different meds being used out there, I see more and more new diseases coming up. Not that I am saying meds are bad, thank goodness for some of them, just that I think some doctors over prescribe them. One example being that I hadf a friend who went to the doctor for muscle aches and came out with a script for nexium. Go figure.

    Part of the definition of IC is inflammation of the bladder wall. I would think that IC cannot be ruled out based on that.

    Need more info. Is this chronic inflammation of the bladder?

    Inflammation in and of itself can be caused by a lot of things, including allergies and auto-immune disorders.

    Can foods cause "chronic inflammation"?

    Is it possible to NOT have IC, but just have "chronic inflammation" from things like food, caffeine, hormones, etc? Or if you have chronic inflammation, is it definitely IC? I can't seem to get a doctor to answer that. Thank you.
