I'm still dealing with Interstitial Cystitis, but the medication is now making my Crohn's symptoms worse. For urination, I am in the bathroom between 30-50 times per day, I sleep probably around 4 hours, have several nervous breakdowns from the pain and lack of sleep, and I am seriously depressed.

The diet for IC is screwing up my progress with Crohn's so my gut is starting to get really upset :(

Yes, I have called the doctor. They want to take yet another urine sample to see if it's an infection even though they KNOW that I have IC.

The pain medication, RE Methylphen, is doing absolutely nothing. I've had to rely on hydrocodone from when I had my wisdom teeth cut out this past summer to give me any relief at all.

I'm afraid to eat, I'm confined to my couch, and I'm absolutely exhausted. There is no quality of life here, and I'm crying all day every day. I am an absolute mess...

I'm not looking for "Well, you should have done this..." or "Maybe try this differently.." etc. etc. I have been researching for hours every day. The only thing I'm able to do right now is wait until Monday and hope that my urologist will see me and DO SOMETHING about it.

I just really need support right now. My friends apparently don't exist anymore, my father, upon hearing about this new illness, can only complain about paying for insurance (after buying a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom house and a brand new BMW), and I'm stuck here with $15.00 left in my account to last until the end of December. I can't get a job because my symptoms are so bad I can barely leave the couch...I suppose it's time to look into SSA and Disability because this is absolutely out of control...

I just wish my friends wouldn't disappear once things start to get bad. They're all fine when I can go out and spend money with them, but the moment it goes to medical bills and I'm confined to the couch they're gone. One of them had the nerve to complain to my fiance's coworkers when he called off for half of his shift to take care of me and used the excuse "Well, she was FINE when I talked to her on facebook chat." Seriously? You can actually tell how I'm doing over 5 minutes of FB chat. Maybe they should become a diagnostician.

Mag-I already went to the ER a last month, and it finally helped me get in to see a urologist, but people seem less willing to help after that...I also don't have the $50 copay for the ER right now. They are pretty adamant about getting it too. If I had more money you can bet I would have been in there yesterday...MANY sighs on this one. Thanks though...I do appreciate it :)

Iserdogur-You guys are the best support I've ever had. Always great advice, always there, always empathetic. I wish I knew all of you in real life. I feel like we would have a pretty good community going. At least we have each other here though.
I just hope they can get me into the office on Monday. I'm normally very patient with them, but I'm ready to raise hell on this one.

((Hugs)). Sorry you're feeling so poorly. I wish you will get the help you need really soon.

It can be very challenging to face 2 diseases where the treatment for one can impact the other disease negatively. It takes some time to get it figured out, to where both are manageable. Unfortunately in the meantime, you suffer. I'm so sorry honey. Hang in there.

Also, I didn't think the ER can turn people away if you don't have money to pay. And the way it's worked when I've taken my husband to the ER, is for them to send me the bill to my house, not demand immediate payment of his co-pay. Also, if they do, perhaps you can give them a credit card, and hope you'll have some money in the account when it's time to pay the bill (I am not advocating getting into credit card debt, but health is way more important than credit rating). Also, with Christmas coming, perhaps you can ask your family and friends to just give you money, instead of gifts, so you can have some money to tide you through this difficult time. I know you don't normally want to do that, but friends and family will understand.

I'm so sorry about your friends are so unsympathetic, and unsupportive. It is true, that in some ways, technology masks the debilitating nature of these diseases. Because you can't tell on facebook, or on chat that you are in pain, and sick people tend to not go around telling everyone how much pain they're in. I know my husband certainly seemed fine and dandy on facebook and chat, even when he was in the hospital in terrible shape. He even worked from his bed in the hospital. But on the positive, it sounds like you have a great fiance, and that should give you comfort. And remember, we're here for you too! Also, when you are back on your feet, you may want to attend some local ccfa chapter to get to know some other folks in the same boat as you, so that you can lean on each other when times are rough.

I hope everything goes well for you on Monday, and that you get to the see the doctor and can get relief from the course of treatment prescribed. Hang in there! It _will_ get better. Stay positive.

Sending positive thoughts your way,

Hi LM,
 
Just wanted to add, I'm sorry for what you're going through right now.  I don't really have any solutions to offer unfortunately. 
 
I don't know anything about Cystitis, but wouldn't an antibiotic be in order? I'm sure the Urologist will get you on something to get things under control. 
 
Perhaps it's time to ask your parents for some financial assistance. Easing your money worries would be less stess overall.
 
As far as your friends go. It's hard to say. Sometimes people are just uncomfortable around anyone that's ill. They are probably feeling like you want to be left alone right now.  If you're fiance is sticking by you, that should make up for alot. 
 
Tomorrow's another day. Hopefully things will be looking up soon.
 
Tom.

PV-Thank you! I will definitely inquire about the hospital payments. I'm pulling my hair out right now with all of this silly frustration, but if I can quicken the process anymore than I see reason not to.
And yes, my fiance is wonderful...I really am serious when I say I probably would have ended my life had he not been here to support me.

Tom-Antibiotics are generally prescribed just in case there is a UTI since it mimics IC symptoms, but IC is yet another autoimmune disease which requires special medication...It's exactly like Crohn's except it's in the bladder. I'm certain the two are linked as well. I know there has been some research done lately that indicates "cross talk" between certain organs, and the intestines seem to be linked to the bladder in many different ways. Maybe it will lead to research for both diseases! I would hope so anyway...

As for help from my parents, my mother does everything she can. She's been quite wonderful throughout all of this, but she and my stepdad together make below poverty level income. They're already taking care of two younger children as well. I couldn't ask for assistance from people who are already spread as thin as I am (and worse I should think since I have no children to take care of).

As for my father, asking him for help is like pulling teeth. It took months of "negotiating" before he realized my money was going to necessities rather than frivolous spending, and even then he is loathe to put money my way. He's always been pretty open about his favoritism among my siblings and I, and I was always at the bottom. Waking up for school when I was younger consisted of having my hair yanked or being pinched rather hard in order to amuse him. The harder I cried, the more he laughed, and I remember my mother, grandmother, and aunt all begging him to quit :/ I've never been anywhere near his favorite, needless to say. Happy memories!

Yes, he is *very* well off financially (hence the huge house and new BMW), but when he has to put any money towards me he seems to complain more than be grateful that he can provide for his children. There isn't much I can do about it, but keep trying to let him now grateful I am for the help he has given. I only wish he were able to look at it as something more than "You know, I have to spend a LOT of money on you guys." He's not paying for college, didn't have to help with my car, didn't pay for insurance for his kids all the way until I turned 19 (because a new job offered it), and deliberately lied about income in divorce court to avoid paying more child support. He has a lot of growing up to do. I still love him no matter what, but I highly disagree with his opinion on money and children, and it's difficult to ask him for help in light of that. He's too focused on "me, me, me." It's how he was raised.

I do agree with your positivity though! I know things will get better...I'm just feeling puny at the moment. I had things on track as far Crohn's went, and then this second disease decided to show up. But that's life!! I still complain anyway...I'm human :) I am very glad my fiance is still here, and certain parts of family are very supportive. My gripes are about health issues, broken promises from friends, and greed from the few family members who actually have the ability to help.

But again, there's not much I can do is there? I'll deal with it as best as I can. I just have that habit of wishful thinking.

Geeeeez so sorry your having such a rough time. I find when I can't eat anything else that a baked potato run through a ricer with a little salt gives me strength and something that wont go through me like salt through a snipe. Wish it could work for you too. hang in there..

LMills I'm so sorry you're feeling so badly :( I can't imagine having to negotiate having IC on top of CD, when they're clearly so connected and conflicting. It also sucks that alot of people around our age don't understand that having enthusiasm for a conversation and seeming alright doesn't mean our insides aren't hurting and we couldn't use a rest. It's so frustrating!
I hope things look better in the morning and that you had an okay night, be well!

Know we are thinking of you. I think many of us know what it is like to want a reasonable quality of life, not be able to get it in any way, and be depressed to know that there is a huge gulf between what we have as expectations and what is going to happen for the foreseeable future. We all get through it somehow - none of us can ever see how - but we are in it together. So we are not going away !

I was just reading about IC yesterday, and I am surprised your doc has not given you an RX for pain meds. What I read said that when the pain get bad, patients should be on rx pain meds. Geesh!! I am so sorry you are suffering so. I will keep you in my prayers that the doc is able to help you get some relief. As for the friends, after 35 years with this dd, I am not surprised. Too many have left when times get rough. Sorry that has happened to you. Hugs!

Did they try you with elavil? I've heard that helps IC. Do you think the vitamins are making it worse? Have you checked with the GI to see if it is related to any of the meds? I do wish you luck. I've heard IC is very painful.

Oh LMills that sounds awful!! I was just reading up on it on the May Clinic website. There was a support group mentioned with a number to call. I am hoping you can find a forum for this disease with folks who are as knowledgeable, helpful, and compasionate as folks are here!

I am praying your appointment goes well tomorrow and you get relief!

Sniper-Thank you so much for the support…Whenever I see people like you or Randy, it make me feel like I shouldn't complain because you're so much stronger through things that are so much more difficult. I really admire your ability to persevere, and I hope I can be like that someday.

Sickandlucky-You're right…People don't understand…Sometimes I don't blame them either. It's difficult to make heads or tails of something you can't see, and difficult still even though we're the ones who have it. I hope you're doing all right lately. I'm guessing you're finally on break??? I hope so!!!

Lyn-I hate that!! I truly do…I'm in the same position, and I'm so tired of crying! I'd like to eat potatoes, but I'm only supposed to eat organic ones that have had no pesticides or any of the chemicals to protect them from frost. Apparently most of the non-organic ones do, and a lot of health experts won't touch them. Why does organic food have to be so expensive!?
I hope you're feeling better by the time you read this…I hate that any of us have to understand the other as far as pain is concerned.

Wolfie-Thank you :) I appreciate the hugs!

Snohare-Same to you! And if you find any jokes, share! Humor never hurt :)

Funguy-The starch has been hard on my system. I'm so used to going without gluten and high sugar products that it feels like I've been eating nothing but junk food. You know, like when we're young on go on candy binges.

Dana-I'm so sorry to hear that for your friend…She's so, SO lucky to have a friend like you to offer her support. You're a welcome rarity!

Nanners-I'm a little surprised too because I've heard a lot of patients given pain medication as well…I'm not too surprised about friends anymore either, but it's still rather disappointing. I'm just happy I have all of you.

Jeanneac-No, they haven't yet, but I am definitely asking about it whenever I go in next. I've heard a lot of patients finding relief on it. I might ask my GI soon if my urologist can't help…

Fallcolors-Thank you so much! We'll see how everything goes!


As for any update:
Symptoms are being kept under control slightly more than before with hydrocodone, peppermint tea, and water. Diet definitely helps as seems to be the case so often with these things.
I tried to get in to see the doctor, but he isn't in today, and the nurse said that he won't be back until after 1 tomorrow. That said, I have to be patient for one more day and hope that they're kind enough to prescribe something more than what I have now…I so hope they RX pain medication…I should hope that my expired bottles around my apartment should prove I'm not addicted (or they would be gone by now).

Thank you all so much for taking the time to respond. It really has helped me get through some bad days…I know a lot of people have it much worse than myself, but I feel so young in all of this that I have a difficult time holding back when symptoms decide to flare up. I'm trying harder to be stronger in everything, and you guys most certainly help!

Elmiron, by the way, is the first medication that has really given me nasty side effects. I greatly prefer Crohn's medication any day!!!

I'm so sorry to hear that you're having such a streak of bad luck. What diet are you following for the IC? Where are you located? In some countries / regions there are special assistance programs for people who run out of money because of medical issues. It sounds like you really have your back against the wall (so to speak) -- please let me know if I can help come up with any ideas about what to do. Best, CH

It's mostly a bland diet, and I don't mind to be honest. It's good to eat things that you know will be less harsh on the stomach. The starch is difficult, but I'm starting to think that the Elmiron is the main culprit for the GI upset. We'll see though!! I've been able to make some really good food with a little creativity :) It will just take some time. You know how it goes...It seems like we've all been through the diet mess.

Hi LMills,

I was wondering if you were on Elmiron. The Mayo Clinic website describes it as the only FDA oral drug approved for interstitial cystitis. "How it works is unknown, but it may restore the inner surface of the bladder, which protects the bladder wall from substances in urine that could irritate it. It may take two to four months before you begin to feel pain relief and up to six months to experience a decrease in urinary frequency."

So far so good -- except why do these drugs take so darn long to be effective?! But then the warning lights started flashing DANGER! WARNING! -- "Side effects include minor gastrointestinal disturbances". Darn it! I was wondering if that translated into "rough on overly sensitive Crohnie guts." Maybe the symptoms subside over time?? I hope so!

I hope you get into the doc and get the information you need -- and pain meds!

That I am!!

The only problem with Elmiron I've noticed is that it causes a LOT of GI upset like the warning says. I went from solid BM's back to D on this stuff. All the same, I think I can handle D if it means getting rid of severe IC symptoms.

I know a lot of people who don't have any GI problems normally started bleeding through stool because of Elmiron. I'll just keep an eye on things and hope it doesn't do that :)

Thanks for the excerpt by the way!! I think I've been most places except for Mayo (weird since I usually go there first).

Here's the link. Looks like the link pages on the left side have good information.
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/interstitial-cystitis/DS00497

I think we could as a group come up with the typical drug warnings:
* Makes you feel worse but you have to take it.
* Causes massive D
* Makes you an emotional basketcase overnight.
* Makes you swell.
* Takes a year to kick in - if the side effects don't kill you first.
