Any advice or recommendations for easing UTI pain?

Urostat: An over the counter medication called Pyridium (phenazopyridine) (utostat, azo) is a urinary analgesic that relieved you of bladder spasm and pain on urination. It is not an antibiotic.

Also, drink plenty of water to try to "flush" bacteria out. ...Read more

You can soldo have a fungal (yeast) or viral infection; or you could just have inflammation (eg secondary to radiation therapy or overuse).

How do I know if my interstitial cystitis is flaring up or if I am getting a UTI? I was just recently diagnosed with IC, and don't have much experience managing it beyond using a bladder friendly diet.

How do I know if my interstitial cystitis is flaring up or if I am getting a UTI? I was just recently diagnosed with IC, and don't have much experience managing it beyond using a bladder friendly diet.

Urgency cystitis: The symptoms of UTI and "interstitial cystitis" are similar, but the "IC" symptoms are more frequent, and not based on active infection, but a more sensitive and muscular bladder wall, which can produce some incontinence also. At 24, it is unusual to have acquired "IC", so perhaps it is chronic urethritis, which can be treated favorably by urethral dilation: see a female urologist for advice. ...Read more

Is it normal for UTI pain to leave after starting meds then come back only 2 days into the treatment??

Possible: The return of symptoms may indicate that the bacteria causing your infection are resistant to the antibiotic.
