It’s a huge possibility that you may have IC.  I actually thought I had IC since my last UTI results kept coming back negative and no one would treat me.  

Your best bet is to go a urologist (or another one if you’ve been to one already).  They will help guide you and run tests.  Also, there’s a diet you can follow to help symptoms of IC lessen/disappear.

I wish you the best of luck and hope you feel better soon.  I know how irritating and frustrating it must be not to feel better.  I cried after two weeks.

@SweetRose2011: Were you ever put on antibiotics?

@SweetRose2011: Yikes. 🙁 I’m sorry to hear nothing is working.  Do you drink a lot of soda, coffee, and, alcohol.  Could contribute to your symptoms – especially if an infection was never fully cleared.  But then again I would think you’d have a kidney infection by now.  Did anyone ever rule out bladder stones?

@SweetRose2011: Hmph.  Sounds like there’s definitely a lot of unanswered questions.  I wish I had an answer or even a miracle cure for you!  Hopefully some other bees on here can help you out a bit.

The lower back pain kind of has me concerned.  I have a family full of bladder, urinary track, and kidney issues.  When the lower back starts to hurt that is what usually has the doctors doing further tests.  WalMart has a urinary medication that is OTC and it has the slightest bit of  anitbiotic in it, sorry, I don’t remember the name, but may be helpful to you until you can get back into the doctor.  I do think that you should think about going as soon as possible as the back pain usually means something to do with the kidneys and the last thing you want to wait on is a kidney infection.

@SweetRose2011: Which is completely odd considering any sort of infection in the urinary system could definitely affect the kidneys.  Grr-rawr.  I’m angry for you.

Also, does any of this run in the family?
