back and abdomen pain
Does anyone suffer with terrible back pain and abdomen pain from thier IC. My stomache is soar that it is uncomfortable when i lay on it to go to sleep. Anyone else?

Yes!!! I think it can be pretty common to be like that with IC. I sleep on pillows...I have a foam thing on my side of the bed....and still end up sleeping on my side. I usually bring pillows where ever I go to help when sitting too. I do find that it helps some if I use a heading pad previous to sleep. I sure hope you feel better soon.Faith, Hope, and Love,

I noticed that Ditropan xl is giving me /among other very unpleasent side effects/, pain in my abdomen caused by lots of gas, I can described the pain as someone puting knifes in my lower abdomen, also last nite I have noticed dull lower back pain.
I have checked and this is what Ditropan do.

YES!!! Here too on the back pain (lower) and abdminal pain. I cannot sleep on my stomach at all!!! I sleep on my side with a pillow and like a 3/4 turn into the pillow. That's as close as I can get sleeping on my stomach. As for the my back, I LOVE my heating pad for that. And, pain meds for both. I've often described my abd pain as a feeling as though there's a heavy bowling ball sitting inside my lower abd....it's my inflammed bladder. It's very mild since having my IC under control.

I have the horrible back pain too... one time my husband thought i had a Kidney infection cuz it just hurt sooo bad but i came to find out that the pain you feel from the IC can spread throughout your whole body.. dont remember where i read that at.. but i read it somewhere. I'm sorry you are in so much pain. I hope things are better for yah.*~* Whitney Spears *~*

I fall asleep best on my stomach. I feel crampy in other positions. Once I fall asleep I am fine....................Hugs, Julie B

Back PainOriginally Posted by sdel803
Hi: I suffer from severe back pain. I've had tests run and have been diagnosed with spurs on my back and arthritis. I'm currently going to Physical Therapy..it's helping but not enough!....I can't take ibupropen because it causes me to have an IC flare big time!.....can anyone recommend an anti-inflammatory medication that is IC friendly? I need help please!!!
04-18-2005, 01:24 AM #10
I use Cataflam for anti-inflammatory. That works great for me.

Yes, I suffer sometimes from abdominal pain and back pain, but it's usually related to IC flares. When my bladder hurts both my lower back and lower abdomen hurt****
*Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
*Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
*Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
*Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

Yes I also suffer from constant lower back pain with abdominal pain. I have also just started Ditropan XL and Noticed I had terrible cramps in my abdominal area. Things have gotten better with the abdominal pain but back pain forget it. Started period so it hurts like heck today. I was wondering why my back was just unbelievable yesterday. Well when I woke up this morning guess what? There it was that lovely monthly thing. I have THE WORST FLARES during my period. Hope you start feeling better.

I do have low back pain and tailbone pain. Most of my pain is inside, and lower. And, in between my legs.....

I have a lot of lower pelvic side pain and terrible back pain, but I also have sacralitits and 2 protruding diskx, and a broe tail bone, so I don't think my pain there accounts for IC. I find the heating pad very helpful. some people respond to ice as well.
