    I don't drink sodas, but I have read here that some are able to tolerate Root Beer. You might try that.

    Thank you so much! I do love Prelief!
    Sometimes I wonder though if I take it too much... But I hate to not take it, eat something that doesnt work for me and than I am in misery. I have noticed though if when I get a flare, I drink milk, take 2 Prelief and 2 Tylenol that it does seem to help. The thing I miss the most is Diet Coke! I have tried taking Prelief with it before but it doesnt help. ANy suggestions with still being able to drink pop?

    Hey there...try this when trying ?able foods....

    When trying new foods or drinks I use Prelief!!! It works great and immediately. Take 2 right before you eat or drink anything that may be questionable to you. I do this especially at restaurants since I am not sure what all the ingredients are in my food. Hope this helps!

    It is a good question. I just noted in another thread that so far, I've been able to tell with drinks in 35-45 minutes, and with food within an hour and a half. When I caved to chocolate, I happened to be at work so I made a note of exactly when I ate it, then made a note of exactly when the symptoms kicked in. A week later, when I tried Indian food, I did the same thing, and it was like clockwork. Luckily, neither flared me in such a way that was agonizing, and both I knocked out pretty quickly with some quick remedies - baking soda in water, tums, and alkalanizing tea.

    I usually flare up within a couple of hours but definitely by the next morning! Good luck on finding out your troublesome foods... God Bless.

    I'm in the same boat as you but have only been on the diet since Feb 18. I have had two flares. And both were pretty much immediate. Although the pain has lasted hours and hours.

    Just like the others have said, it depends - most times I can tell within 30 minutes, some it might take a day. I know the doctor told me even decaf coffee can cause pain didn't believe him-- guess it was because I've been drinking it for so long, but one day I decided to give up even that, well guess what? after about 3 weeks of no coffee, I had a cup of decaf, and within 30 minutes I was in pain! Anyway, since then (its been 4 months been better- I've been drinking tea- with the couple exceptions here and there of a cup of coffee on the really cold mornings, but then I pay for it dearly!) (boy, I really hate it when the doctors are right!!)

    For me it can be within minutes, or sometimes it takes hours.

    For me it varies. Everything varies. Some foods will give me a reaction almost immediately. I remember once getting an amaretto sour from a club, and racing to the restroom before I had even finished the drink!! My poor hubby had to rush me straight from the club to a clinic to get checked for a bladder infection. This was an incident right before I was diagnosed. Some foods will take days, and some foods even vary incident to incident. I think there are SO many factors that contribute to my flare-ups that its almost impossible to tell.. I think the food diary will really help you answer that question for you though.

    Oh, don't apologize for questions. If you have one chances are there are another dozen people reading along who have the same question.

    I think it really varies from one person to the next as to how long after eating a trigger food they may flare. I could usually tell in a few hours, but definitely the next day. May be very different for others. What really told me was when I ate the food again and reacted - then I knew for sure it was that food.

    Another Question Ladies.....Sorry

    Hello ladies. Before I ask my question I just want to thank everyone for replying to my other questions. It is really appreciated. Ok. Here is my question. I have been on the elimination diet for a little over a month and was wondering when you eat something that triggers a flare, how long until after you have eaten it do you normally react? I am not sure if I worded my question the right way or not. I have also been keeping a journal every day of what I eat and do I need to look back 1-2 days or even longer???? I know I am being neurotic about this.

    Oh and God News. I went for an instillation on Monday with my Urologist and the next day was rough but today I was perfectly normal. A REALLY good day. Let's hope and pray that I have more and more of these.
Working...
