I have spent 8 years going to every type of doctor imagineable with burning and inflammation in the entire vulval area. I looked like a Rhesus monkey at times! Gynaccologists, skine specialists, etc. etc. did all the tests, tissue culture etc. All that came back was major inflammation. I nearly went mad-er with it! I was over 60 so it was all blamed on menopause. A very aware bladder specialist diagnosed IC emmediately and I got my life back. Food etc. sets it off and I still make mistakes and get flare ups. But at least I had a diagnosis. I wonder if anyone out there has the same problem and can suggest additional help? Great to have women over 50 together. Leonie.
