    Thanks for all the responses. You guys are simply great! Today is better than yesterday. After work, I ate IC friendly foods and did what I know to do. The AZO worked!

    The rest and meds was exactly what I neeeded.

    Once again, thanks for taking the time to respond. This site has been a lifeline!

    Sorry you are feeling bad. You might try some over the counter azo to help with the burning.

    Feel better soon,

    Oh, boy, do I hear you! I had a very good couple of days and then wham - I'm at work and absolutely miserable. The prosed isn't helping at all. I am debating going home and taking a pain pill, but I wanted to take some time off on Friday for fun. I don't want to look like a slacker, since I'm the boss here. I hope you feel better soon. I never eat at Wendy's, but I have good luck ordering burgers without any veggies or sauce on them from most places. Then I go home and put a thin layer of mayo on it.

  • Some Days Are Better Than Others - Today Is Not A Better Day

    Today has not been one of my better days. Yesterday was unusually long. Worked for 10.5 hrs and attended a CoDA meeting after work. I was hungry and decided to stop at Wendy's for a plain cheeseburger and fries. I usually order this from McDonald's without problems. By the time I got home - WOW WHEW!

    I hardly experience burning while urinating. Last night and early this morning, I am experiencing painful urination, pressure, slight burning while sitting, and frequency. I have experienced these symptoms sporaidically in the past. History tells me that it will last for about 2 to 3 days.

    Because of my recovery and the fact that my IC is mild, I have refused all mind altering/mood altering chemicals. Therefore, I will rely on what is available at this moment: continue to take Elmiron/CystoProtek and the med that turns the urine blue, stick close to the IC diet, rest, and pray!

    Lesson learned: do not eat from Wendy's.
