Answer

Patients with interstitial cystitis have a high incidence of associated conditions, including allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and focal vulvitis. A substantial emotional and psychological overlay to the complaints, due to the duration and severity of symptoms, may or may not be present.
