Often difficult: This is not an easy condition to treat...As I have a few patients having ic...Burning/pain/frequency/urgency without a known cause. Treatments are typically focused on relieving the symptoms which often require multiple medications etc..Some may benefit from a placement of a bladder nerve stimulator etc... Consult to make sure that there are no treatabele cause before calling it ic.. Good luck..
