I just saw your post today, and have heard of DMSO, but probably wouldn't use it since it's generally used in industrial settings and can cause severe illness due to impurities/contamination. I've never heard of medicine grade DMSO, and doubt they make it, but perhaps you could find something OTC or prescription with similar ingredients.
Best wishes to you,

I did find the following articles on PubMed, our reference source for recent medical studies.
Here's a couple of articles on DMSO for Interstitial cystitis:
The investigation and management of interstitial cystitis.
Multimodal therapy for interstitial cystitis.
I think Erin provided this link in another posting, but I'll repost it here. This is our page on DMSO and Clinical Trials.

Thanks for that info! It was actually several doctors about a decade ago that didn't recommend it, but perhaps the medical world caught on and decided to produce a medicine grade DMSO. Interesting, and I'll look into it too.
Big hugs to you too,
