Maybe: Diet and ic does not have a simple answer. A starting list of foods to avoid include alcohol, artificial sweeteners, coffee, citrus juices, cranberry juice, hot peppers, side and spicy foods.

CYSTOSCOPY: CYSTOSCOPY which is direct visualization of the bladder by a urologist. The bladder will have many microscopic nicks and tears. It can be very tough to treat.

I have interstitial cystitis and I have tried all the regular treatments including diet. I am in severe pain all the time. What can I do?
Possibly: Some people seem to be sensitive to foods that they eat or drink and others don't seem to be affected at all by what they drink. Try it and pay attention to your body. If you feel the same that day and the next, then it probably doesn't matter what you eat or drink. If you have more frequency or pain, then it might be something you need to avoid. ...Read more
I have interstitial cystitis. I want to know if taken vitamin B2 (riboflavin) will make it get worst? I know B12 does.
It depends...: Not everybody with interstitial cystitis reacts the same way. Many do find that a b complex irritates their bladder, but often they can tolerate some b's individually. Some find b6 and B12 irritating while others have no problem with those. Vitamin b2 is not particularly irritating to the bladder but the only way to find out how it affects you is to try it. Start with a low dose. Good luck! ...Read more

High dose ibuprofen, naproxen, lidocaine patch or vaginal diazepam all worth trying first.? consult pain clinic.

Different Antibiotic: If you have kidney pain, you need to be re-evaluated for a kidney infection. Clindamycin is NOT going to help by itself and is NOT the standard of outpatient therapy for a possible kidney infection. You should have your urine rechecked and make sure that they do a urine culture in addition to the urinalysis. They can start you on Macrobid twice daily until the results are back. ...Read more
