First Survey of IC Patients Reveals Emotional Distress Associated with Frequently Misdiagnosed Condition

The National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health (NPWH) today announced Wednesday, October 31st as the first annual National Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Awareness Day. To mark the day, NPWH, with support from Ortho Women’s Health & Urology, revealed the results of the first survey of IC patients highlighting their frustration and despair, and new educational resources to help women recognize and manage their symptoms.

Results from the survey, available on AllAboutIC.com, showed that respondents expressed very high levels of emotional distress. Nearly all respondents — 95 percent — felt frustrated from dealing with IC and its symptoms. Most said they had been annoyed or angry (85 percent), 75 percent reported feeling depressed, and more than two thirds (67 percent) felt alone/isolated and embarrassed.
