I have had IC for about 5 years. I have finally found a doctor that has give me some relief. I am on Elmiron, Detrol, and Hydroxyzine. The last one is to help me relax at night so I can get some sleep. I also have medicine inserted into my bladder at least twice a week. There are times when I can hardly sit, stand or lie down. I know what you are going through. I have heard that there is a new treatment call magnetic therapy. Does any one know anything about this? If you have any thing that has helped you please email me. I would truly appreciate it.
