    Ouch, Ouch Ouch
    I can almost feel my mucous membranes contracting like they did my first year with symptoms when when an angry parent would call me (teacher) to find out why I hadn't been at work ( two diagnostic surgeries). Thanks for the pain chart, Dean.

    So how is it working for you now that you are on the more naturopathic meds? Since I was just diagnosed, I'm really struggling with whether to go the traditional or naturopathic route.

    This is very interesting. I've often wondered about if stress brought on my IC. Thank you for the post!

    Reason for pain when stressed

    The Adrenal Glands
    • Epinephrine = adrenaline
    • Increases bld glucose
    • Stimulates release of ACTH from pituitary
    • Increases the rate and force of cardiac contractions
    Constricts bld vessels in skin, mucous membrane, kidneys
    • Dilates bld vessels in skeletal muscles, coronary arteries, pulmonary
    arteries

    I think this is the reason ICers have more pain when stressed or having problems with adrenal glands.
