  • Symptoms all of the time.

    Does everyone or anyone experience discomfort all of the time? I've had this non-stop discomfort/frequency for 8 months now!


    Current medication: Soul-searching

    Vitamin D and B, Green smoothies, infrared sauna use, walking, cleansing, still seeking doctors to help find THE CAUSE of this--autoimmune or infection.

    I experience constant pain. I have not had a day that has not had pain in it for over 4 years now. I am trying to figure out a way to deal with this realization.
    I know this is probably not what you want to hear.
    Hope it's helpful...

      I've had the constant feeling of a full bladder since the onset of symptoms 8 yrs ago. Somehow I've managed to get somewhat used to it.

        Yes, daily dicomfort. Some days are better some days are worse. I was screaming in pain last night, having a flare up and nothing helps. Finally gave up, took a Vicodin and went to sleep. Today will be a torture, sitting in the office all day makes my symptoms a lot worse.

          While I have to admit that I am always aware of my bladder and always have more frequency than others around me, but I actually feel good most of the time. It took time to find the most effective treatment options for me and which foods and drinks are a problem, but most of us do get there.

          Sending healing thoughts,
          Stay safe
