I just got an email from the Interstitial cystitis association saying Dr. Melanie is having a nurse practitioner and IC patients on her show discussing the link between Lyme and IC.

Dr. Melanie has a public radio show.

I know The Dr. Melanie Show can be listened to on VoiceAmerica.com but we might not be able to access it until tomorrow because I think the show was today @ 1.

IC was one of my first major clues something was very wrong with me. I don't really have IC symptoms anymore (knock on wood) but still not well.

I had IC problems before Lyme bloomed. The urogyno I went to suggested Lyme to me.

i have ic, and it has just continued to get worse as my lyme progressed.

i DEFINITELY believe they are connected.

when my other lyme symptoms improve, so does my ic.

when my lyme symptoms worsen, so does my ic.

i have no doubt they are related!

Hmmmm, that's interesting. I was diagnosed with IC back in 2007. Not diagnosed with lyme until last year. My IC symptoms have faded into the background since lyme took over though they do flare during a bad herx.

I've began to wonder if I haven't had lyme longer than I think especially with the neuro symptoms being so bad for me. My whole life I have had unexplainable illnesses. When the docs couldn't figure it out they ignored it and eventually they would go away and others would emerge.
