How can I prepare to discuss IC/PBS with my doctor?

To prepare for your appointment, make a list of important questions to ask your doctor. You might want to ask if you should change your diet, what treatments are available, and what to expect during the testing process. Some people find it helpful to keep a log of how often and how much they urinate. Some people also find it helpful to bring a friend to help you remember what to ask and keep track of your doctor's answers.
