First Survey of IC Patients Reveals Frustration Associated with Frequently

Misdiagnosed Condition

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- In observance of the first National Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Awareness Day, the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health (NPWH), with support from Ortho Women's Health & Urology, today released the results of the first survey of IC patients highlighting their frustration and despair, along with new educational resources to help women recognize and manage their symptoms.

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.

The Unmasking the Many Faces of IC patient survey fact sheet and video are available at http://www.prnewswire.com/mnr/orthomcneil/29748.
