I was wondering if any of you had a problem with peanut butter. I haven't tried it yet, too scared. I love a good sandwhich (sans jelly).

Me too, I was fine with it -but I only ever bought the all-natural stuff, I think I'd get Smucker's, the rest of the gang around here prefer Jiff so we're a 2 brand peanut butter home, lol. But I like the natural stuff much better, I was eating it waaaay before IC!Hugs,

This confuses me I thought peanuts were on the bad list. I know we are not all diet sensative. Are you all at all diet sensative? Has anyone had a problem with it? I would love to eat some peanut butter.Daily Meds:
Ditropan XL 5 BID, Elavil 50 QD, Elmiron 200 BID, Hydroxine 50 BID. As Needed: Bacofen 20, Prosed DS, Hydrocodone/Apap.
Adderal 10 QD, Remmeron 37 QD (I take 1 1/2 of 25 mg)
With the help of my doctor moving my meds around a bit by increasing this and decreasing that I have found a good combination of meds (for now and I pray a long time from now).

Don't eat peanut butter, just don't like it, so I don't know what effect it would have on me. However, peanuts were the very first food that I determined were a trigger food, a real bad one for me. Hope you can enjoy your sandwiches, unfortunately the diet is trial & error. But many of us do figure out our true and worst triggers, and are able to manage our symptoms (some of them, at least) with diet alone or w/ the aid of other treatments.
Best wishesIn remission since Aug 2009! My apologies but I will no longer respond to private messages regarding my IC and VV symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, remission, lifestyle changes including my diet or stress management techniques, etc. I am simply too busy. If you have questions please refer to my remission thread as well as the other 6000 something posts I have made on this board....they pretty much cover it all from beginning to end.
My remission story: Healing from the Inside Out
What helped me get to and stay in remission? stress reduction, diet, time, meditation, stress reduction, stress reduction, stress reduction!--I no longer take medications for IC, PFD,VV, anxiety, or depression. Making career and lifestyle changes to reduce stress and learning techniques to manage anxiety set the stage for my bladder to heal.
My history: No history of bladder issues***Onset of IC and VV sxs Nov 2003***Diagnosed Nov 2004 based on symptoms and hydro/biopsy results***Cysto-Hydro did not give therapeutic relief, I had complications and long recovery ***Hunner's Ulcers found and removed during hydro***Symptoms: the usual~pain, burning, spasms, frequency, urgency, nocturia, lower back and upper thigh pain, very bloated "IC Belly"

I tried the peanut butter and didn't have a problem with it (yeah!). I do have to try things 2 or 3 times before I know how it will really work, which is what I did with peanut butter.
Carol, I'm still trying to figure out what I'm diet sensitive to and what I'm not. I have a huge list of things I am sensitive. My worst ones are coffee, soda, chocolate, tea, and spicy foods. It's really trial and error I guess.

Peanuts are on the "Usually problematic" list. I can have a few if I haven't had anything else that's a potential problem. And occasionally I have a peanut butter treat.
