Just wondering if there are any males who have been diagnosed with IC and if so what are your main symptoms.
I have been suffering with BPH, and all of the associated trouble with that, for about 5 years now and was given Tamsulosin, initially, and then Finasteride in combination. When I was finally refered to a urologist a year ago he thought that my main symptoms, as I described them to him, could be down to an overactive bladder and so he added Mirabegron to the cocktail.
The Mirabegron has helped in cutting down on the frequency, it was about every 40 minutes, but it has not really improved the almost constant stinging/burning/ general discomfort I feel 'between the legs'.
I have put myself on quite a strict 'IC diet' and found quite a bit of releif, but not total, when I cut out Soya which I found I was inadvertantly eating in shop bought bread.
I would be interested to hear from any males who have IC and, perhaps, BPH and in how you got your diagnosis.
By best wishes to all, not forgetting the ladies, who are suffering from any sort of urinary discomfort.
Thank you and take care.
