  • Flaring Again

    After about 2 weeks of being pain free. BOOM! out of nowhere I start flaring this afternoon. At first it was just pressure and frequency. Over the last 3 hours the burning has increased each time I pee. The last time (about 15 min ago) was excruciating. I haven't ate or drank anything that would trigger a flare. Nor have I had sex with my boyfriend since last Saturday night. I really hate these flares that come out of nowhere like this. I probably will go the uro's office in the morning if things don't improve. I don't really think this is a uti. I usually get cloudy, foul smelling urine with uti's. My urine has been really clear all evening and I haven't noticed any strong odor either. I've got to cut this post short as it's time to go again. I HATE MY IC RAVAGED BLADDER!

    Let's keep praying for a cure.

    Oh man, two weeks off isn't much of a break!

    It makes me cringe to read about the burning. What a cruel thing this IC is.

    I hope it disappears as quickly as it came on.

      Only an IC patient will be happy if it's an infection. I hope you feel better quickly.

      Stay safe
