  • Currants/Raisins

    Has anyone had a flare after they've eaten currants or raisins?
    I've been doing really well on Elavil (virtually no pain and I can even tolerate more foods), but I had currants last night and I'm feeling pretty sore today.
    Can anyone offer any advice? Thanks in advance xx
    Love Lauren x

    Had IC for five years (2005) but was only diagnosed in 2007. I was almost pain free for 2 whole years after having a cystoscopy and altering my diet drastically. However, I am now experiencing painful flares once again and wondering if the effects of the cystoscopy have worn off? Feeling miserable and hoping to find some support and friends on here

    Currants and raisins are both on the "try it" list, which means they are a problem for some ICers. I hope this flare goes away quickly.

    Sending gentle hugs,
    Stay safe
