Interstitial Cystitis (IC): Frequently Asked Questions
With no obvious cause and no single pill or procedure to treat it, IC/BPS can be challenging for both the patient and the doctor. Half the patients get better for a period of many months or longer. Others learn to manage their symptoms using the various therapies described. Some patients are unfortunately devastated by pain and often the associated anxiety/depression that accompanies a chronic condition. They may need a pain specialist and emotional support to help cope with their condition.
