  • hello, had hydro three weeks ago

    hello i felt good my second week after the hydro. but now i'am in pain again. i'am flaired up. i believe it is from stress. i was working part-time and i think i over worked myself. i'am limited on when i can go to the bathroom. and around lots of kids. so stress can be high. anyone have any suggestions on how to cut flairs down? i have had ic for ten years. this was my fourth hydro.

    If your still working ask your doctor for a note about being able to use the bathroom more often. I know if I have to hold it I flair
    Heating pad as you probably know works and a warm bath if you can.. urised, prydium, usept the anti-spasms pills... thats about all I can suggest. hope you feel better soon.

        Have you been checked to be certain you don't have an infection working? And I absolutely agree that you need to have bathroom access as needed.

          drink lots of fluids (water)....and use the bathroom when needed....holding it in can cause pain, and a flare up.....

          Meds that did not help:
          Detrol LA
          Lexapro (caused urgency)
          Amatryptaline 10mg once a day (helped IC but made me feel like CRAP)
