View Full Version : Flare?
04-28-2004, 06:41 AM
I don't know if this is a flare, I am hoping it will go away. I was doing a little better, my pain lessened some and I was having some breaks from the frequency and urgency. Now I have pain and frequency, urgency and the pressure between my legs is unbearable. I don't even know what causes it, It just started out of nowhere. For the past week I have been able to get a little and do some things with my daughter, but now I am stuck in the house again. Last night my daughter said " Mommy I wish you were all better" I had to run out of the room to cry. Does anyone have any ideas of what causes this horriblle pressure? I just hope it goes SOON!!! THanks for listening.

Sorry to hear your in flare.. it always sucks!!! Can you recall if you ate or drank something that would cause your flare??? Diet is so important... my bladder was so bad that I could not get out of bed for days at a time until I started a very strict diet... it's hard but it helps so much... I don't even take meds anymore... except when I do something to put myself in a flare....
another thing is your ph level in your urine could be off which causes a lot of pain... 2 things you can do to alkaline your urine is a tbsp of baking soda mixed with something and drink it... it doesn't taste good but it works do 2-3 times a day... another is eat tums it helps balance the acid....

Thanks Alexis, I will try the baking soda. As far as my diet, I still can't figure anything out. I'm due for my period nect week, so maybe that has something to do with it. I don't know, it's all just so frustrating. Thanks for your reply and concern!!! It really means alot!!!

Could it be a UTI? I know...whenever we have pain that comes out of no where without warning, the 1st thing that comes to mind is UTI. I would have it checked, just in case...can't hurt. ;) Hope you get to feeling better real fast so you can have fun with your daughter, again. :kiss:

Danielle, I too am in a flare right now. With me I think it was to tomato sauce I had the other night on my pasta. I'm a newbie and didn't know until yesterday that tomatos may be a trigger for a flare. I'm on a very bland diet. I would love to have some ideas as to what to eat. Foods that seem to help others, etc. Hope you are feeling better soon. I know what you are going through. Hang in there.
I would make sure you don't have a UTI. Watching your diet will be a biggie too. I always flare around period time and stress will do it too.
Have you called your Dr. and told him what is going on? I hope you feel better soon.:kiss:

I agree with getting the urine cultured to rule out infection.
Have you tried Detrol or Ditropan? If might help with the frequency.
