    Zanaflex 2mg
    IC and low oxalate diet, no sugar diet
    Xanax for appointments to help relax me since they cause so much pain

    Started PT 3/07, PT has really helped me in ways I never knew that it would

    Meds ive tried
    Lyrica
    Klonopin
    Singulair
    Claritin
    Pyridium
    Soma- can barely tolerate half a pill
    Atropine cream- didnt seem to work, although i found out I was applying the creams wrong
    Estradiol cream
    Urelle- caused worse bladder spasm and retention

    Various antibiotics for lyme which caused yeast and made the IC and VV worse

    waiting for the next chronic illness to pop up

    I just got back from seeing a Dr. the long term company sent me to. The Dr. was very smart and said he was recommending me to get disability based on all the information that he had and from the state of depression he saw in me. This is the last step before the "disability" review board decides ya or nah.

          Please dont worry. Most people will weigh the opinions of the the Drs you have been seeing for YEARS much more heavily than the opinion of someone you have seen one time. I know you are worried, but I will be praying for you. You will get thru this. I just know it.

          Many hugs,
          Amy
