Hi we actually have a thread going on this already:

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...072entry89072

I started the topic - funny because I think I say the same thing - diet restrictions, etc. You sound a lot like me..I do have endometriosis and have had 4 surgeries for it. However, that did not attribute to my bladder problems. I was diagnosed with IC over the summer. It is really hard to deal with as you know. As far as diet, definately the stuff on the list bothers me - but each item is different (some urgency, some urgency and frequency some both of those with pain, etc) so I have been playing it by ear - trying to figure it out - see the thread, there is quite a discussion on it already that will be helpful for you. i have found that a the product Prelief is helpful - you take it when you eat or drink (it is over the counter in the tummy med section). I tried the drugs for IC and none of them worked. My doctor did an interstim implant for me - it is a device like a pacemaker that attaches to the nerve and make the IC symptoms less prominant (though if I eat bad things - red wine, tomatoes - they still bother me - so do the days before my period - but not as much as before). This device has really changed my life, but is is not approved for IC - but it is approved for urgency and frequency/inconitinence symptoms - which is a loophole that my doctor used to get it for me (though he is also a reasearcher, so i assume that he is working to get it approved - like I said he used the loophole and insurance covered and all).

I totally know where you are coming from...It is really hard to have IC - especially in addition to other stuff like celiac disease! please look at the thread for a link to the IC network that I put on there. Feel free to message me anytime as well =)

-Michelle
