In brief: TOUGH PROBLEM
Ic pain is difficult to control.
Articles talk about d-mannose supplements to cranberry juis/dried fruit form/capsules/pyridium, etc. Lots of water and avoiding caffeinated /carbonated products may help, as it eliminates the acidity fluctuations that lead to inflammation and bacterial overgrowth. Hope this helps, it's a tough one to have and very frustrating to treat.
