  • Larger Volume and More Frequency

    I was wondering if anyone else has this:

    When I get my period, I urinate a lot. I go often and large amounts. I will go what seems like 200+ mL and then 20 minutes later put the same amount out. I shouldn't have added a possible food trigger during my period, becaue I don't know if that is the problem or if my period is the problem. I drank 8oz of a chocolate protein shake and urinated a gallon for a couple of hours. Why would a food trigger cause an increase in volume? I don't know, but it seems like my body tries to dilute the urine?

    Let me know if anyone else has this...

    When I get my period I get a horrible flare that will cause pain, frequency and urgency. Having something to eat or drink that I shouldn't have can increase my frequency alot too. I think the only way you're going to know for sure is if you don't use the protein shake and see if you still have the same problem.

    I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
    1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
    2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
    I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

    I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

      Well, the weird thing is that the total volume shot through the roof. I haven't had a protein shake in many weeks and thought I'd give it a shot today. I guess I shouldn't have chosen the first day of my period...

        LOL, probably not, that is weird though. I think your intake and output should be roughly the same but if you're voiding a lot more than you are drinking that is odd. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

          Tracy ~ 29 years old with Toxoplasmosis (from birth), Fibro/CFS (since age 13...ouch), severe IC, IBS-D, severe PFD (surgery made it even worse), vulvodynia, hiatal hernia, GERD, ulcers, severe gastritis, numbness/tingling in extremeties, pelvic nerve damage--mainly urethral, urinary retention, pelvic reconstruction 7.10.07 (fixed rectocele, rectal prolapse, lifted bladder, urethra, uterus, and repaired vaginal walls), Raynaud's, 2 severely herniated discs in neck and one in low back, anemia, PCOS, anxiety/depression/panic attacks (since forever). Still having major bowel problems (inability to empty rectum...any ideas?? ).

          I'd like to be on House, MD as a medical mystery.

          I take: LIQUID Atarax, Flomax, Soma (yet again), acidophilus, Glucosamine/Chondroitin with MSM & collagen, d-mannose. MAJOR flare from Cystoprotek! Re-trying freeze dried aloe vera w/some decent results!

          Tried and failed: Elavil, Ultram, Prosed DS, Benadryl, Bentyl, Valium, Ativan, Zanaflex, Librax, Sanctura (all caused retention among other things), bladder instills (owwwwww!), Elmiron (allergic-throat tightening). Failed Interstim-no feeling in sacral nerves...

          I'm allergic to penicillan, sulfa, reglan, quinolones, clindamycin, and now LATEX!

            Tracy, I do think it is weird. I mean my volume went up 4x with just 8 oz of protein shake. I see the PA at my doctor's office on Tuesday. I'll try to remember to ask her too. Let me know what your doctor says! Thank you!
