        prosed DS has helped

        Uro had me try Prosed DS and it has helped about 95% which I am happy about. I can handle the 5% discomfort. What an awful experience. Don't wish this on anyone. Thanks for all of your help ladies.

            Hi Susan. This too is my chief ic complaint. It is awful! Urelle does help me some, but it does not take away the burning 100. I am currently getting over a urethral flare, and for me that can take up to 2 months. Baking soda in water does help somewhat to. I can go into medical remission for moths at a time & eat & drink anything. This is the worst symptom I think. I think what happens is that once that tissue gets damaged & inflamed it just takes awhile to calm down & heal. Stick with the diet & give it time with the meds. I hope you feel better soon!

              thanks for your words of encouragement. It means alot. The new meds are working pretty good now after 6 days. Trying to stick to the diet but the fruit season is around the corner. Thanks again.

                I hear ya! I have not had a piece of fruit in about 6 weeks now & I LOVE fruit! However, the good news is that I started the South Beach diet on Monday & already lost 2 lbs! You can't have any fruit for the first two weeks so at least I am depriving myself for the greater good!

                  I found something odd, so dont know if its tied into urethra burning , but if not its quite a coincidence. I suffer from IBS which when it flares up causes urerthra burning as well, the two always go hand in hand. To sort out the IBS I take huge quantities of acidofolis(eek spelling - those friendly bacteria things) stick to the IC diet and CUT OUT ALL GRAINS...now not sure if this works for everyone but it works for me, the burning (at both ends sorry to be so graphic) stops within a day or two, and I am back on track. Its worth a try, cant kill you to just cut out grains for a few weeks, rice and potoatos are OK, for your carbs - but then it helps the old waistline to cut out the carbs for a bit. Hope you are feeling loads better. Greetings from across the pond.

                    They are definately related. I don't have IBS per say, but I remember when IC first hit me, every time I had a bowl movement I would burn from both ends. It was hell! I still get burning at both ends sometimes after a bowl movement. I attribute it to conracting the muscles down there in order to push. I take magnesium & flax seed oil at night so I don't get comstipated. It does not burn as much now, but does still occassionally. It usually dies down after a short while. The nerves are are so closely related down there, I think they set each other off.
