I'm so sorry that you have IC, but glad you found this site.
I think it would be a very good idea for you to read the information in the Patient Handbook at http://www.ic-network.com/handbook/ The more you know about IC, the better you will be able to deal with it.
Sending gentle hugs,

Glad you found out about cranberry juice. Its funny before I got diagnosed in Jan thats all I drank because they tell with UTI's its the best thing...Then when I got diagnosed with IC they tell me its the worst thing!!! LOL
I know at the beginning I was in a giant flare...no that I have been on the meds and things have calmed down I definitly know when I am in one...Pain & burning is just more intense. About a week before my period is bad and especially with stress!
