IC, Gastritis & Gastroparesis

Interstitial Cystitis and Gastritis? Do they occur together?While interstitial cystitis (aka bladder pain syndrome) is commonly known to be associated with irritable bowel syndrome (with diarrhea, constipation or both), visit any IC support group and you’ll also find patients struggling with a variety of stomach complaints, including:

  • gastritis
  • gastroparesis (delayed stomach emptying)
  • GERD
  • stomach ulcers

This ICN Survey seeks to determine if IC patients struggle with more stomach complaints than previous reported in other studies, as well as to determine if stomach complaints were present before, or developed after, the onset of bladder symptoms. We are particularly interested in the sequence of symptom development. Which symptom group appeared first? Bladder, Bowel or stomach!

Please help us understand more about life with IC by taking this anonymous survey!!
