Symptoms of IC
Interstitial cystitis (IC) symptoms differ from person to person and may even vary in the same individual. Some have milder cases that do not disrupt their lives significantly. Some have symptoms that come and go, waxing and waning from day to day, week to week, or month to month. Others experience IC severely, both day and night.

Reports from patients and some studies also suggest that certain conditions occur more commonly in people with IC than in the general population. Some of these include allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, endometriosis, vulvodynia, fibromyalgia, and migraine headaches. Chronic fatigue syndrome, pelvic floor dysfunction, and Sjogren’s syndrome have also been reported. Many IC patients, however, only have bladder symptoms. Learn more about related conditions.
