        I am not taking any IC meds right now (other than Tramadol for pain every now and then) and go anywhere from 3 to 15 times a day (it depends on a lot of things). My average is about 5 times during the day and once at night.

        Medical "Issues":
        Tachycardia(resting rate is 125-130 )
        Tramadol-as needed (IC)-50mg
        Elmiron 200mg twice a day
        Levsin .125mg 1-2 pills 4 times a day

          I just went back to my family doctor yesterday, (the one who put me on Vesicare) he was actually pleased that it is working. He wants me to stay on it of course, at the 5mg. -- if you remember I was going quite a bit at night but now only 1-2 times. So, between this for the OAB and Elmiron for IC and everything else that I have, I guess I'm doing ok. I'm off to go get blood test done - had to fast last night and early this morning. Can't wait till after its done so I can eat. I also have to schedule a sonogram to get my liver checked (last year they found some cysts on it, nothing to worry about I'm told-- hopefully they can do it with this, but I might have to have a CT done).

            I'm keeping strict bladder diaries for the past 3-4 weeks and I gotta tell ya...oy! My dr. is thinking about Interstim for me so I'm VERY anal about my bladder diaries. I want to be sure it works!

            I go between 12-30x a day (depending on if I'm flaring or not). I'll sit on the toilet for 20mins sometimes waiting to get the pee out...more often than not, I average about 15x/ day.

            I also go an average of 6-10x at nite. I HATE that! No matter what I do, when I stop's always like that!

            Tracy ~ 29 years old with Toxoplasmosis (from birth), Fibro/CFS (since age 13...ouch), severe IC, IBS-D, severe PFD (surgery made it even worse), vulvodynia, hiatal hernia, GERD, ulcers, severe gastritis, numbness/tingling in extremeties, pelvic nerve damage--mainly urethral, urinary retention, pelvic reconstruction 7.10.07 (fixed rectocele, rectal prolapse, lifted bladder, urethra, uterus, and repaired vaginal walls), Raynaud's, 2 severely herniated discs in neck and one in low back, anemia, PCOS, anxiety/depression/panic attacks (since forever). Still having major bowel problems (inability to empty rectum...any ideas?? ).

            I'd like to be on House, MD as a medical mystery.

            Connor with happy!

            I take: LIQUID Atarax, Flomax, Soma (yet again), acidophilus, Glucosamine/Chondroitin with MSM & collagen, d-mannose. MAJOR flare from Cystoprotek! Re-trying freeze dried aloe vera w/some decent results!

            Tried and failed: Elavil, Ultram, Prosed DS, Benadryl, Bentyl, Valium, Ativan, Zanaflex, Librax, Sanctura (all caused retention among other things), bladder instills (owwwwww!), Elmiron (allergic-throat tightening). Failed Interstim-no feeling in sacral nerves...

            I'm allergic to penicillan, sulfa, reglan, quinolones, clindamycin, and now LATEX!

              I go anywhere between 7-11 times a day. I normally am able to sleep through the night, thanks to hydroxzine. I was waking up 1-2 times a night and started taking that, have done much better. Also just started taking MSM Glucosamine three days ago and feel better. Not for sure if it is the meds or not. I am sure God is a major factor.
