This comes from the IC Association. The study information is:

New Sleep and IC Symptoms Study is Now Recruiting

A women’s health nurse practitioner with 10 years of experience treating IC patients and a doctoral student in nursing are asking for your participation in an innovative study. Your help is needed for this study which will look at sleep quality and interstitial cystitis symptoms.
This 20 minute online questionnaire is voluntary and completely confidential. You will be asked to complete several questions about your interstitial cystitis symptoms, your sleep habits, and some demographic information.
Researchers are looking to interview women:
  • with IC between the ages of 30-60 years old
  • with IC diagnosis made by a specialist who performed a potassium sensitivity test or bladder hydrodistention.

Click here to find out more, including how to participate in this study.

I clicked on the information page it the age limit is very tight. You have to be at least 30 to participate (too bad I’m 2 years off).
