Hi, I've not been diagnosed with IC yet. I was however, diagnosed 18 months ago with Vaginal Atrophy. So I took HRT for a year but it didn't help. I was hoping after each dose I used, that it would be the one to take the symptoms away, but it never did. So in August last year I stopped using it.
I googled my symptoms and IC came up. My symptoms are:
Soreness at end of Urethra
Pressure/bloating in bladder.
Wanting to wee all the time.
Only managing a drop (At each bathroom visit) on days when I want to wee all the time.
Emptying bladder in middle of night after a day of wanting to wee all the time.
Now I don't get all these symptoms at once thank god. But I can get soreness at end of urethra when I'm on days of wanting to wee all the time etc.
But these last couple of days I've had a different symptom. Very little soreness, bloating or urge to wee, but when I do wee, there is only a little drop comes out. Then like last night, I went to bed expecting to get up a couple of times in the middle of the night to empty my bladder. Instead it happened at 7am.
It's now nearly 3.45pm. I must have had just over a litre of liquid inside me since I got up. Only small wees again so not got rid of much. I've no urgency to go.
Can't understand it. I think I must have between 500ml and 750ml of urine in my bladder at the moment. I wonder if this is all part of the "IC" or what?
