    Hi! <img src="graemlins/hi.gif" border="0" alt="[hi]" />

    Does anyone find that eating something offensive doesn't affect you until a day or two later? I ate a lot of sugary candy yesterday morning and woke up in a little bit of a flare last night. I drank tons of water so I am feeling better now. I know a lot seem to feel the symptoms right away but anyone else seem to take a day to notice that you ate a no no?

    YES! I usually don't feel bad until the next day - it's always been that way for me.

    Diagnosed August 2001

    Current IC meds: Elmiron (since 2001), Levaquin (one pill after intercourse to prevent UTIs), Effexor (for depression & anxiety)

    Past IC meds: Amitriptyline (Elavil), Hydroxyzine (Vistaril), Detrol LA, Lexapro (for depression & anxiety, but also helped my IC) (They all helped, but I was able to discontinue them.)

    I've been virtually symptom free and able to eat & drink whatever I'd like for about 8 years now.


    “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” ~ Viktor Frankl

        Sometimes I don't feel the symptoms until two days later...which makes it hard to tell which food caused it.
