  • Sitting/Lying Pain

    So another thing I've noticed since this intense flare has started... I'm not in as much pain when I'm standing/walking as I am when I'm sitting or lying down. At work, I generally do okay when I'm moving around. When I get home, or when I'm on break relaxing, it seems is when the pain is most intense.

    And I know to most that the response would be "don't rest/sit so much!" I don't sit period for up to 9-10 hours a day at my job. Vet tech isn't much of a sitting job. In the same mindset, it's also a catch 22, so to speak. IC makes me tired and sore all over. I just feel like crap.

    Anyone else notice this similarity with their IC?

        It could also be that you are totally exhausted after a full day --- and when you finally get to relax, that's when there are no more distractions and the pain hits. I think that's why when I'm in a flare, it hurts worse when I go to bed.

        I do think it would be a good idea to be checked for PFD. If that's a problem for you, some physical therapy could help a lot.
