Interstitial Cystitis is a chronic condition causing bladder pressure, bladder pain and sometimes pelvic pain. The best way a doctor put it to me after being diagnosed is that your bladder is essentially allergic to urine. That analogy has stuck with me since I was finally diagnosed just over a year ago, following my Cystoscopy Hydrodistension. Millions of people suffer with this condition for years without a proper diagnosis. It took me years to get the correct diagnosis, myself. Unfortunately, this debilitating condition has no cure and treatments to help with pain only help so much. It's time to spread awareness of Interstitial Cystitis and you can help do so by shopping from this fundraiser. A portion of the proceeds for all purchases made through this page goes towards research.
