    IC flare ups after UTI

    I was looking at some old posts and someone had asked if their was anybody else their flare up starts after having a bladder infection. That's what happens to me too. I'll still be having symptoms after the bladder infection clears up. For me I don't think I'm food sensitive that starts it it's having a bladder infection.

    Dear Fellow Sufferers,
    It's my first time using these types of boards.
    Please be patient with me.
    I have always had UTI's. After having Macrobid
    thrown at me and a bunch of other antibiotics
    Finally told my Physician of 28
    years to send me to a Urologist.
    Fortunately for me, my Urologist is great.
    This disease/condition is one the worst experiences
    of my life. I've had 3 major surgeries but this
    disease is horrible.
    The only way you can diagnose this disease is
    By Biopsy. I had one done and drove home.
    I started Elmiron 7/3/2017.
    I am using the diet.
    I woke up today and finally don't feel like
    Jumping out the window. Elmiron takes
    approximately 3 weeks to work.
    I start the lipuid Bladder treatment
    I find Pyridium (which can be bought
    over the counter, helps for about
    4 hours. Today was the first day I didn't take
    It (the Prydium) today.
    If I can help anyone, please let me know.
    You might want to ask your Primary Physician
    to be referred to a pain specialist.
    If you need pain
    Let me know if anyone is interested in my
    progress with the liquid Elmiron.
    I have had no side effects from Elmiron
    I promise it gets better.
    I am willing to answer any questions or
    talk to anyone.
