Interstitial Cystitis (I.C.)

Recommended Posts

Hi Amanda


Was it you a while back that said interstitial cystitis (IC) is an autoimmune disease? I was always under the impression it was still sitting on the fence (my sister has a severe case of it)? If it was you....can you tell me where you found that information please? I would be interested in that reading. Thank you!

Sending good wishes your way!

Hello Snowbird


I'm so sorry I don't remember who told me, my diagnosis was 4 years ago. I, like yourself, went on the internet and found autoimmune interstitial cystitis (IC) that can be caused by scleroderma, fibromyalgia and lupus. When I was diagnosed with IC I also had the beginnings of scleroderma but obviously didn't know it.


I hope this helps and take care.

Hi Snowbird,


We have a page on our main site about Interstitial Cystitis (IC). I also have that, among many other things.


See: Interstitial Cystitis by ISN.

Hi snowbird!


The IC Network also has a lot of information. When my IC was really bad I was on their site everyday!

Hope that helps...
