Suggest treatment for interstitial cystitis

default
Posted on Thu, 2 Apr 2015
Question: Hi, my name is XXXX. I have been diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis 4 years ago, but it was a condition I was born with. I know it is rare. It's just my luck. I am currently 25 years old. For the past week and a half I have been experiencing major pain everyday, my urine has been smelling off, & I have blood in my urine as well. Should I go to an urgent care or emergency room? I have had bladder infections before, but they have never felt like this. Plus, I have not had one since I was diagnosed with I.C. Please help me . . . .
