  • Hit W/Flare Out Of The Blue

    With some pain always there a couple hrs ago I got hit hard. I am sitting here rocking & typing b/c of the pain. I have to go to work in a few hrs & I am getting ready to go lay down with a heating pad for awhile hoping to feel better by the time I need to get up, yeah right. I get a flare right at the time of my period & I am suppose to start today, which I probably won't for a few more days. I hope it doesn't get too bad where I need to go to the ER again, that demorol is some good stuff, heehee, but the bill for the ER is not.
    I go back to the uro Feb 16th to see how I am doing & will most likely get scheduled for more tests.
    Going to bed, talk to you all later.

    I hope you get to feeling better soon. I always flare too around my period time. If it last too long and you suspect an infection, you might want to get that checked out too. Sending hugs,

      Hi Marlene, sorry to hear you are flaring. I just had a big flare last Wednesday--it was the day before my period too. I hate that. I hope you feel better soon!!!!!! kissing

      *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).

              Thank you all for your kind words & support. I ended up not going to work b/c I was groggy from my meds & still in pain. I do feel somewhat better this morning. I woke up & gushed from starting my period, very heavy bleeding.
              Thanks again, you are all great angel grouphug
