  • Not sure where to post this - ICN Shop Cushions Question

    I'm trying to decide on whether or not to purchase the cushion from the ICN shop. My IC flares up when driving due to the vibrations of the vehicle. Is this what the cushion is designed to assist with? I don't have problems sitting - just when driving. Can anyone who has purchased the cushion let me know how helpful it was? I do a lot of driving in my job and it's becoming really difficult. This seems to be when I flare the worst.

    Thanks!

    Current Meds: Enablex (7.5 mgs), Elavil (25 mgs), Vagifem

      Hi Donna! Thanks for responding so quickly Is it the vibration of the vehicle that causes problems for you or is it sitting? To me there is a difference. I can sit for hours at a time with no issues. But as soon as I start the car, the flares begin. So it must be the vibration. Is that what causes your issues?

        It's the vibration that bothers me. The cushion takes the pressure away from the perineal area.
