  • BIG BIG FLARE

    Ok, so it's been building. For weeks or months probably. But it hit hard. About an hour and a half ago. I feel like my bladder is a baloon about to burst. I've had so much stress in my life lately that it's not wonder. But I HHHHHUUUURRRRRTTTTT so bad right NOW.

      *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
      *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
      *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
      *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

                      Michelle,
                      Sorry to hear you are flaring. You have had a lot of stress lately, so I am sure that is not helping. Hopefully you will be feeling better soon.

                            I am on the way to the uro. If I don't get relief I am going to the Emergency Room. I can barely drive. And the truck is a stick shift. No one to drive me. They all decided to sleep late and my hubby is at work. I'll update you later. Michelle.
