Keep going...You will figure this out and get it to a place that you can live your life again...
I was put on different bladder calmers through the years and found all they did for me was dry me out...so I quit using them...I love the pyridium when I am in a bad burning place in there because within 30 min it coats my bladder wall and gives me some relief! it does turn your urine orange and it stains...so be aware of that...but it's my first stop with the meds...which I do try to avoid unless the pain becomes unbearable which unfortunately I know you understand...:( Yes, it does get worse when we are in a flare and have a full or even partially full bladder...the burn can be unbearable...but know once you figure out what works to bring it back into submission your flares will be much less intense because you will get them back inline before you get to the point you are now...hang in there! Hope you get this all calmed down soon!
Yea... I have found its a lot of trial and error. I looked for the pyridium in the supermarket but they didn't have it. I guess I have to go to a drug store for that. I order some leak guards on amazon. I have never pissed myself yet, but if I have those I hoping it will bring down the anxiety level of actually pissing myself. Well... Here's to another day, hope its a good one. Thanks again purr
you should be able to get it at the drug store...you could have gotten it on amazon! ;)
Try to not be anxious (I know ~ easier said then done) but stress makes it worse...so long deep slow breath...do what you need to do to be in a calmer state of mind!
I do hope you feel better soon!
Couldn't find pyridium at the drug store, guess I should have just ordered it on Amazon. The leak pads are really great, it gives me a sense of security taking a lot of anxiety out of the picture. I had another good day yesterday, but had a few brews over the weekend and today I'm not as good. Im not sure if its alcohol related or just part of the ups and downs. Well nothing else all that new, just staying the course on antibiotics, no sex or masturbation, I started a probiotic and saw palmetto and pygeum. Keeping my fingers crossed that the good days start to out weight the bad.
Is AZO a brand of pyridium, cause that came up when I looked it up on amazon? Well that is what I bought, just took some cause like I said having a bad day. We shall see how it works, hope it does.
Well I took the AZO over an hour ago. No real change unfortunately. Guess I can cross another one off the list. Too bad, I had high hopes that it would help me out. Back to just grinding it out.
