  • Aleve

    I was at work and my back stared to hurt from sittiny, plus my feel hurt from my heels. I took 2 Aleve about an hour ago. Now I'm starting the burning feeling in my urethra. I'm really scared it's going to come on really strong. I think I might leave work early like 4:30. Can anyone tolerate aleve?? Maybe it was the quesadillas I had for lunch. It was mozzerella cheese, grilled chicken, & rice. Maybe it was the rice I had. It had spices in it. Gosh I don't know. I can usually handle advil but I dont know about aleve. I can't remember. Any ideas? I took and Ultram as soon as I started to feel icky. Now I'm sitting on my foot to get some pressure on my urethra. I'm also drinking alot of water. My body is really tired. I went to Little Egg Harbor this past weekend and did alot of walking and having fun. Maybe I did to much, but I felt fine this morning. Around 3:30 I started to get the burning feeling. I hate this stupid diesase so much! I dont want to loose any more hours or paid time off!!!
    My sick days are my paid days off! I dont want to use all my time up!!!! Anyone else frusterated today??
    Crap, I was suppossed to work out after I work and now I cant even do that! I run, it's my stress reliever and now I have to sit home with a stupid heating pad. Plus Monday's are my cooking days. Your all going to laugh at me but I stink at cooking. My best friend amanda does too. Monday nights I go over to her house and her mom (practically my mom these days) teaches us! Well she assists lol. We cook and then watch Dancing with the stars and then The bachalor! I dont want to be home tongiht stuck! I'm so upset now. Ok calm down rachel or your going to make it worse. YEs I talk to myself ha ha ha I think it helps.
    Thanks for letting me vent!!


    Dance like no one is watching
    Love like you've never been hurt
    Live today like it's your last

    I'm so sorry that the Aleve seems to have bothered you. I don't think Aleve ever bothered me but Advil does and they are the same class of pain med so maybe that explains it? I know exactly how you feel though. I am having an awful flare and I actually called out of work today. I have already used up all of my sick/personal time. I used my floating holiday and I've used more than half of my vacation time. I didn't want to call out today but my bladder hurt so bad I didn't see anyway that I was going to sit at my desk all day so I know how you feel. If you need to talk PM me.

    I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
    1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
    2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
    I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

    I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

          I can take Aleve but not advil. and I would go with the Quesadillas (sounds good!) but usually a big no for us.) Hope you get to feeling better.

              HUgs, Aleve bothers me sometimes also.
