The earliest record of IC was in 1836 by Dr. Joseph Parrish describing the presence of urinary tract symptoms without a stone but the term interstitial cystitis was coined in 1887 by Dr. Alexander Skene.

A long time ago women come to suffer from ci, it is more common in women.
Is called bladder neurotic and thought it was hysteria in women.

Hunner, the doctor to the discovery of the ulcers of Hunner discovered that this disorder was not psychosomatic, and the specialist Parsons has been studying this disease recently.

Currently it is not treated women as hysterical for having symptoms of IC. But many women, myself included, since the recognition of this disease is recent, we have had that we classify as mentally ill when trying to get relief and treatment. Many have suffered in silence a disease utterly incapacitating. There is still much for us to try as you must, but we hope that this will change very soon.
