Worst flare of my life right now
I need help.I am asking any of you for any tips you can give me to make this bad flare go away, anything that has worked for you in the past. I am 28 years old, diagnosed with IC in 2010..Had it pretty undercontrol until now...I had to leave work today because I couldn't handle my symptoms...In the hour that I was at work, I peed about 5x..The urge to go is the most uncomfortable feeling in the world. Not to mention I was getting cold sweats and pale which never happened to me before. And nausea. Also bad lower back pain or kidney pain. Usually when I start to feel one coming on, I take an antinflammatory medicine and it goes away. This doesn't work for me anymore. I am taking a uristat like OTC med right now, Uri-Calm I think it's called..It has 99.5 mg of that hydro something medicine...I took 2 ibuprofen...My dr gave me Elmiron pills 2 years ago which I took for about 2 months but then stopped because it is so expensive per month, $80, but I have some expired ones stil left and popped one of those because I am at my wits end. When I first got home, I drew a steaming hot bath and sat in it. Unfortunately my hubby wanted to go out to dinner and I had a soda and some spicy wings and now I'm in even more pain (stupid I know!). Any other tips would help!! Even natural, homeopathic pills I can take on regular basis? My one vice in this whole thing is soda, I am sort of addicted to it and it is hard to give up for me but it's not worth what I am going through right now so I am going to stop cold turkey on that..
