Thread: Remission question

Not sure where to post this so I posted it here. Sorry if it belongs somewhere else.
If someone goes into remission and then comes out of it, are the odds in their favor that they can go into remission again?
Just curious what everyone's thoughts are on this...Diagnosed Sept. 2009 based on symptoms
Elmiron 100 mg 3x per day (started Sept. 09)
Glucosamine w/MSM 1000 mg per day (started Oct. 2009) Added Glucosamine w/MSM and Chondroiton in Jan. 2010
Elavil 12 mg at bedtime (started Dec. 2009) Upped my dose to 25mg on Dec.14th) Lowered dose to 12 mg again on Dec. 28 due to the feeling that I was having slight retention
Ativan as needed .5 mg (this really seems to help with my symptoms)
Update as of Jan. 6th 2010
Stopping Elmiron and weaning off of Elavil
Started using 10 mg vaginal valium

I certainly hope so. It makes sense to me. If someone has been in remission once, but due to circumstances is there no longer; it is perfectly logical that it can happen again once the person figures out what caused the remission to end. Things like a change in diet for some reason, illness, prolonged stress, change in personal habits, etc. might cause symptoms to come back. Once those things resolve or you are able to take control of them, then I believe it is possible to once again be symptom free, or at least symptom light.Sharon
