I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I feel fairly strongly that I have IC or something similar (I have all of the symptoms). Now I want to learn everything I can about this disease. I've spent a lot of time on this site and a few others today, but I'm a huge reader and I was hoping some of you could recommend some actual books that are current and relevant. I really want to be informed!

Try The Interstitial Cystitis Survival Guide by Dr. Robert Moldwin.... it's an excellent intro to the disease and provides explanations of all the current diagnostic techniques and treatments. It's a great book! You can get it on this site at http://www.ic-network.com/shop, or at Amazon.com or something. There are also several other good books in the ICN Shop. Enjoy :)

I recommend the IC survival guide by Moldwin as well. It is an excellent book and he is awesome! He is my doctor and he is amazing. I have not really read any other "books" on IC but I found the info on this website very helpful!!!
Are you currently being treated by an urologist?

If you're looking at purchasing a book, The Interstitial Cystitis Survival Guide is the one I would suggest --- it has excellent information and is easy to read and understand. Another plus is that it's fairly inexpensive.
