  • How IC pain works...

    Please take a look at Ann's post

    Very informative and simple explanation of the complexity of IC nerve-related pain.
    Would like to see her get some recognition...she knows her stuff

    I saw that post, too. Great post!

    The Awards "program" has been on hiatus for awhile now, but if and when it comes back we'll let everyone know.

    Diagnosed August 2001

    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)

    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.


    “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

    “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~ Brian Tracy

          I thought it was a really great post too! Ann, you did such a great job of explaining that! I havent ever heard it explained it that way before, but I liked the way you explained it better than any way I have heard before. I even bookmarked it to refer to if that question comes up again! Great job!
