Anyone else out there with interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome? I am not sure if it is the stress I'm under, my endometriosis that's on my bladder, or something I ate that is irritating the lining but my bladder is going crazy!!!! So much intense pain and spazzing! I feel urinary urgency, but of course do not have to go and if I try it is awful feels worse than ever and I just want to die. I took Tums and drank a ton of water which is my physical therapist's trick for fixing things if it was spicy food or soda or something like that irritating the lining of the bladder. It took some of the edge off, so I know I'm on the right track. Does anyone else have any home care remedies? I'm thinking I'll take an Epsom salt soak to try to calm the spasms. Guess I better contact urology in the morning about starting instillations again. :( I hate being cathed.
