Angeleyes, I am sooooooooo sorry to hear this, I just logged on and read your post, I too have been in a slump but not so much as to think of a fellow sister more. Onetime I had a bladder problem and I was to drink cranberry juice and tons of water. Don't get dehydrated please. Maybe and IV if things don't get better ASAP. Let us all know how you are doing and make sure to get rest. Hang in there. Nature1715

Hi angeleyes

Have you tried a Urologist? If one dr, does not give you the answers you need then find another.

Greentea w/mint is so good for the kidneys bladder etc, also cranberry 100% juice or even tea,

The Gals are right if you feel you need to go to the ER, Please let us know how you are feeling OK?

Hi angeleyes I'm so sorry you are having such a hard time, sweetie please don't let yourself get too dehydrated. There must be someone who can help you. I'm moving your post over to the Road Less Traveled because there are several ladies over there with IC who will see it and maybe can give you some suggestions there, OK?

And do go to the ER if you aren't urinating at all, they can put you on IV fluids. Keep us posted, we're worrying about you!

s,
-Linda

Hi Chris

Have you tried different sorts of water. By this I mean filtered, bottled, distilled. I can totally relate to the water problem...same here.

I can drink our local water through a filter most of the time but now and again they put something in it that drives me nuts. I always have bottled water on hand for these times. Took me awhile to find a bottled water I could tolerate though, so keep trying. When you find one you can tolerate, freeze some for emergencies.

You must drink water though, it's so important. If you can't drink you must have IV fluids. Please don't hesitate to go to the ER.

Hang in there sweetie. Thinking of you.

Angeleyes,
Although my problem isn't because of my bladder I have major problems with food. I'm 5'5 and about 110. Please contact your doctor if you've lost too much weight. I try to drink lots of water and eat what I can when I can. I also take LOTS of vitamins to try and replace what I know my body isn't eating.

I've recently had a problem with some shaking and tremors and have traced it to a lack of potassium. When we can't eat our bodies aren't getting the necessary nutrients that it needs.

Don't drink Cranberry juice

Hi,
I just read the posts here. I have seen a urologist because a Gyn thought I might have IC (It is unlikely).

Anyway, the BIGGEST thing he told me was not to drink cranberry juice if you have IC.... even though that is commonly thought of as a good thing for bladder problems it is not good for IC.

I hope things start to look up for you. You should definately find a urologist who specilizes in women's issues or a UroGynacologist.

I am also thin due to pain zapping my appetite for many years. I am 5'7" and 105. When I am in alot of pain I just don't eat well. I do try to take vitamins etc.
