  • HELP! In a flare and don't know why!

    I have followed the diet to the T and yet yesterday I have been going to the bathroom quite often. I am miserable What could I have done to deserve this? I would have rather had a coke or a candy bar and be in a flare then not knowing how this one came on the way it did.. I am wondering if the diet even helps really!

    Have you checked for a UTI?

    -Started having symptoms in May 2009.

    -Doing pretty well on diet alone.

        If it continues you might want to check for a UTI anyway. Maybe try an OTC test kit at least.

        But I know what you mean about how rotten it is to flare and not know what you did, -if anything, to deserve it! I just went through one of those. While I know certain diet items will make me flare, it's not the only thing that can trigger my symptoms. I used to flare mid cycle. I flare when under stress. I flare if I forget to drink enough water. And on rare occasions I just plain flare for no reason I can ever figure out. Not fun!

        I'm sorry you're going through this. Hopefully this one will pass quickly for you!

          Man I hope so.. It is frustrating because I am going out of town this weekend and will be sitting down alot and need to not be in a flare. I wonder if wearing heels will cause a flare. I have wore them for years but I am just trying to figure out why this happened. This is what i did yesterday

          Ate some cookies with milk for breakfast.
          Took daughter to dr appointment. She had to have 3 shoots for her 18 month old well baby check.

          Went shopping for about a hour.

          Started to feel flare right before lunch.

          Came home at a salad with feta cheese, shrimp, olives (black), olive oil. Had water to drink with lunch.

          More water and some chips for a snack.
          Wasn't feeling well so I went to bed no dinner..

          What could have caused this one????? I am baffled
