Excellent plan: You've put together an excellent treatment plan. Increase your fluid intake (especially water), and get on a high fiber diet. Eat plenty of fruits and veggies, whole grain breads, a big bowl of popcorn every day. If symptoms not improving or pain worsens or persists, then see your doctor.
