    Hi, pen2005pal ~ I'm sorry your having such a hard time with finding something to help your bladder spasms. I was prescribed Valium Suppositories and I'm certain they helped. I used them for several months faithfully along with instills at least 2xWeek, Prelief, AloeVera, Premarin, Celexa, PT and IC Diet. If I missed something, I have it all listed with my signature. One year later I'm feeling so much better that I can function and just deal with the flares now and then...haven't had an instill for over a month now!!

    Prayers you'll find what works for you soon,
    Never heard of IC til suspected....Never knew so many suffer from it. Praying for a cure. I've found can you...keep the hope.
