IC is not repeat UTI: Lower uti's are usually responsive to antibiotics, but recurrences are common. Other conditions besides infection can cause frequency and urinary discomfort; interstitial cystitis is only one of many. The hallmark of ic is visualization of 'glomerulation' on cystoscopy; however, ic may exists without seeing this. Potassium sensitivity test in the office can confirm. You do need a diagnosis. ...Read more
