Unhappy Enablex is NOT HELPING



I went to the URO on Tuesday and he didn't do the test that I thought that he was planning to do. He was going to do some kind of Potassium compound test.

Instead, he decided to not put me through that and he gave me samples (2 weeks worth) of Enablex. This is supposed to help with the pain and discomfort that I experience every day now. It almost feels like my bladder is cramping, not unlike the menstrual cramps. Constant pain. Nothing is helping.

The Enablex actually made it worse. Much worse. Can't sleep through the night and I want to curl up in the fetal position all day. Plus, I still feel like I have to pee, even after I go.

I don't know what to do next. My sister asked me if I have endometriosis. Has anyone ever heard of this causing pressure on the bladder. Years ago, I was diagnosed with Low-Grade Endometriosis, but I don't have the typical heavy cycles that usually go hand in hand with that...But, I have been taking B/C pills for years.

This is making my life so unbearable. I don't even want to go outside. I'm never comfortable and I am not getting any sleep. What could be wrong, besides IC? What medication will help? What tests should I insist on having done?

I can't do this anymore. I'm fast losing hope that I'll ever feel normal again.
