    Thanks guys! My running shoes have always represented freedom and power. I hope to wear them again! I still have not determined what triggered the flare: high salt diet (drinking salty water!!), nadolol (beta blocker) or florinef....I stopped drinking the salty water but have not been able to go off meds yet - need to meet with drs (tomorrow). I was flaring big time for 2 weeks before I even realized it was my bladder (12 years in remission makes you forget!). I stopped the salty water 10 days ago. I have been taking pain meds but need less to get by and one day I didn't need anything until it hit around 8 pm. It will take a while to unravel the mystery but thanks for your ideas and support.

    I love runningshoe as well! I think it depends on how bad of a flare that you are having and what caused it. Drink plenty of water, especially if the flare is diet related, as this will wash out the bad stuff quicker.

    Hummm... Sometimes it takes days to get over a flare and sometimes longer.. it just depends.. I have found that I can be doing the same thing with meds and diet and go days without a flare then all of a sudden I have one, even though I didnt change anything.. So its hard to say, even if I know what triggeres a flare and stop eating what triggered it, that does not mean I will never get one again.. I do know that my hormones play a big part in it and stress is another trigger point.. IC is strange, It effects us in so many differant ways and effects everyone differant....

    Hi all,
    Once you have identified a trigger - and eliminate it - how long until you start to feel better? Any thoughts....Thanks
Working...
