I haven't been dx with IC, but have been having a UTi with my period almost every month for the last six months if not longer, and have been hospitalized at least 4 or 5 times for vomiting and pain. I should also mention I have endometriosis. All of my pain in from my knees to the base of my spine and in my ovaries, when it's bad, around my kidneys, and also where I pee and my tailbone. I also have GI problems. I have been going to different dr's since I was 13, and am 21 now. My last appointment with my OBGYN, we talked about everything I've been going through and about how everyone thinks it is from endometriosis or a urology problem. i told her I had already been through urologists and GI drs and they all told me to see her. We talked for awhile and then she did an exam and told she that she thinks she knows what's wrong with me. Then, she pushed about 5 different trigger points internally that all made me jump off the table. She told me that my pelvic muscles are too tight, which is why I hurt, my periods are so bad, and I have GI problems. So, she referred me to physical therapy to loosen my pelvic muscles. I haven't started the therapy yet, but I just wanted to tell my story incase it will help someone else. I'm lucky to have found my Dr. She was about the 10th OBGYN I tried, and she is an angel to me. If anyone in/around Houston would like her name, just message me.
