    I also have times of the day that are worse for me. Usually right before bed... I probably pee 10 times before I actually fall asleep.

    I don't know if this will help shed light on your current situation or not, but I was wondering: what time do you eat dinner at?

    I ask because maybe you are having flares in reaction to eating a bigger meal in the evening.

    For myself, if I am in a flare cycle, regardless what caused it, I always get the flare symptoms after I eat dinner. I think that it is because I eat small meals and snacks during the day, so my bladder isn't being irritated by my stomach/bowel, but when I have dinner, it is usually one big meal, that ends up giving me pain and frequency.

    Don't know if something similar is happening to you, but reading your initial post really reminded me of my own symptoms. My IBS causes at least half of my IC-pain and I'm only know starting to figure out how to avoid the same flare cycles from happening. Basically, I try to avoid drinking anything before, during, and after dinner (to digest better) and have been making great efforts to eat more balanced meals throughout the day.

    Thanks for your reply. Can I ask what your ritual is?

    Strange Flare-Does this happen to any1?

    Hi Im quite new to ic and do not fully understand how flares operate yet! Ive been in a flare for just over a week. I think it was caused by intercourse. Some of the days its not as bad and feels like it's going but then later on in the day or the next day when I wake up, it will reappear. This happens mainly in the evening between about 8-10pm. I'll get bad pressure and need to go every 5 mins. I was wondering if anybody else's flares are up and down like this. Since starting Cystoprotek, Ive not had a flare, this is my first proper one and Im wondering when it will pass. One last thing- how long do your flares caused by sex usually last?

    Thanks
Working...
