  • Food complaint

    This disease is so strange. I noticed that radishes are on the safe list so I thought great I'll try them. I ate 1/2 a radish and had pain all afternoon I can't eat 1/2 a radish or a Gala apple which are on the safe list but I can eat Ceasar dressing which is on the caution list..go figure! Well if I had to choose the Ceasar dressing is the best tasting of all

    Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
    Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
    CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
    Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
    Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
    Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

    Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
    Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
    Naproxen:for pain as needed
    Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
    Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
    Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
    Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.

      Yeah, I can't have apples either. And I'm better off with blackberries which are higher in vitamin C than blueberries. Weird.

          Agreed! I can't handle a handful of peanuts which are on the bladder friendly list yet I can drink a beer with no consequences. Go figure! All I can say is that this is where that food diary works wonders!

          Yes, I would choose the Ceasar dressing over a radish or apple. Lucky you!
