  • bad week with Flare

    I have had such a bad week with my pain. My abdomen is bloated and hard and I am having such bad bladder pain. I take vicodin four times a day and I called my doctor last night at eleven and she told me to go to two every four hours for a few days. Maybe I have a uti? I have a interstim and it usually works well although it doesn't take care of the pain. I just plain hurt. I am not sleeping and I am sick of hurting. I have a heating pad that is now my best friends. I have tried the new pads that stick to your underwear for heat but I find they don't get warm enough.
    I hope this will pass soon. I have so much to do and this pain is wearing me down....
    I pray for relief I hope god is listening. [img]confused.gif[/img]

    I hope you find out what is causing your troubles. I hope it's an infection so you can at least get some relief soon. It's so frustrating when you have something like the interstim and then you get symptoms again. Let's cross our fingers that it's an infection and it will go away soon.

    Best wishes and warm hugs

      I really feel a lot of empathy for what you are going through. I too am having a horrible week. Either the IC is progressing or I might have an infection. Infection would be best because I can take meds for that to help. I hope you get better and better.
      In Love and support

        Hang in there, darlin! Would some Pyridium Plus help, maybe? I know sometimes it doesn't though.. Just a thought [img]smile.gif[/img]
