    Wish I could add my period to the wish list too but I dread that so much. I get migraines then too and dizzy. Our stupid hormones. Shoot them I say. Shoot them

    I think we're the only ones who celebrate a UTI! (I also celebrate my period - when it doesn't give me a migraine - because the IC usually gets better that week. )
    Hope this sets you on the road to recovery & that you feel better very soon,

    it's an infection

    Yay! Soy, I'm so glad you have an infection.

    Seriously, I hope the antibiotics clear things up for you quickly.

    Feel better.

    GOOD NEWS! I have a UTI! :)

    Haha, I know this sounds funny, but I am SO GLAD that my urine culture came back with bacteria! This means I can take antibiotics and finally stop hurting!

    I have been in a severe "flare" for over a month now. I knew it was an infection but since no bacteria was showing up (with the dip tests), the doctor wouldn't give me antibiotics. The way I could tell it wasn't IC was because the things that usually help (Atarax, very strict IC diet, pelvic floor exercises) were not doing ANYTHING! The pain was so bad that I was actually in LESS pain if I drank a glass of wine.

    Well my urine that they sent out for culture finally came back with an infection! I got the call from the lab a few minutes ago, now I am just waiting for the pharmacy to call me and let me know my prescription is ready.

    Sometimes I think that a lot of my "flares" are actually low grade bladder infections that don't have enough bacteria to show up on the standard in-office tests, and then they end up going away on their own...
