I have been in a flare for the past couple of weeks and I think it is getting better (yesterday was a good day), but today I noticed a pinching pain. I don't have a bladder infection.
I did take my vistiril and Tramadol today and it helps a lot.
What is the pinching? Is it the bladder muscles spasaming?
Just curious. What helps for the pinching pain? I know the Rx version of Pyridium 200mg really helps a lot with pain too.

It sounds like bladder spasms. They can be described in many different ways.Have you checked the ICN Shop?

I can relate to the pinching and sometimes it feels as if I am being peirced inside. Deep inside, like I can't get to it if I tried. I think they are spasms as well. For me, B&O suppositories help with that most of the time. I usually get so flustered from the pain it takes me a while to calm down and remember to use them but when I do the pain usually subsides at least for a while.
