    Yeah, I remember last year was a rough one for you too! What rotten luck that this wasn't a UTI so it would be treated and quickly pass. I hate knowing it's just a flare and that you can't do a whole lot other than to let it run it's course.

    I HATE IC! I WANT TO BE CURED.
    No truer words.....

    You have to do what you have to do to calm things down. If it is a couple of days off work, you gotta. Pray you have an empathetic employer who understands. It is tough. But you have to take care of #1, YOU. Hope you come out of your flare and all will be well. Wish you luck. Jill, wife of Bob

    I am so sorry to hear that your bladder is giving you so much trouble. I totally understand how you feel. I pray every night for IC to be cured so none of us will to live this way in the near future.

    Keep The Faith

    No UTI this time - The flare rages on

    The culture results have come back negative.This is the worst flare non-infection realted flare I've had in along time. 2010 was the year of the UTI for me. I had 5 of them. I sure hope 2011 doesn't become the year of constant flares for me. I am soooooooo frustrated with my bladder. I'm completly taking today and tomorrow off form work. I am using my first 2 sick days to nurse my poor diseased bladder back to least my normal level of discomfort and frequency. I've peed 7 times since 9am and the burning is as bad I ever get. I HATE IC! I WANT TO BE CURED.

    TexasHoney, hope you feel better soon! When I read your post it occured to me how horrible stress is for me as well, it seems to trigger flares that are worse than ones I get when I eat offending foods sometimes!

    Take it easy, and make sure to take some time out to relax. I always find exercise so helpful all 'round, in managing stress especially. Even if it's taking a nice walk somewhere...

    Update : No Infection Found so far; No Relief Either

    No Vicky, I didn't hear those magical words today but they sending a sample out for a culture and I have 3 day course of Cipro just to be on the safe side.
    I worked the first half of the day and went to the uro's office after lunch. I loaded up on meds and took long nap from 3:30 to 6pm and woke up still feeling lousy ( horrible stabbing pains) I really enjoyed my all too short period of remission I've had recently. I've really learned to treasure those times but they don't last nearly long enough. I sure wish a cure could be found. I guess we can all dream, can't we?

    Were you lucky enough to hear the magical words, "It's a UTI"?

    started a topic My first flare of the new year

    My first flare of the new year

    I've been in a major flare since Friday night. Constant peeing and pain. The old "Dribble and Burn" routine at it's worst. OMG! I hate this disease. I think stress is culprit here. I had 2 very nerve wracking days at work last Thursday and Friday and on Saturday I had to help my mom get her computer restored.Here it is early Monday morning (1:40 am in Texas) and I can't fall asleep. My poor dieased bladder won't let me. It looks like I'll be getting checked for a UTI in the morning just for good measure. I HATE MY BLADDER!
