The only thing that helped me was an old anti-ulcer drug called Misoprostol.
It increases the mucus lining so that the bladder could try to heal itself.
I only take it now when I feel discomfort again. It can cause miscarriage, but I am
beyond childbearing years.
Tomato sauce bothers me the most or way too much caffeine.

I have a friend who has suffered with IC for years and years before it was diagnosed. She has finally found help through this doctor:

ICAMA | Interstitial Cystitis Alternative Medicine Association

My friend has that and it is really hard to go out to eat with her. She has so many things she can't eat. She also has to often ask them to cook her item in a separate pan rather than on the grill that can have cross-contamination. She can't have pepper and some many things are automatically salted and peppered before cooking. She slowly adds foods in to her diet to see if they bother her - I remembered her doing that with some varieties of cheese. I'm not sure if her doctor gave her a list of foods to be careful of, or she just figured it out by trial and error.

I have it and in remission , it felt like I was dying very painful many months of special diets , meds , lots of meditation and prayers , months of painful Elmiron ints , which did finely help, tried to take ELMIRON orally for about a month it just made me too ill .

I still try to watch what I am eating and drinking and stress is a big factor with I.C. DIET AND STRESS if I can help just ask . Oh your PH is so important I drank and still drink ESSENTIA WATER , a yeast and candidia is a big factor for a lot of people . I wish you the best , your in for a lot of work my to you I wish you the best .

I have had IC for 12 years. A LC diet helps immensely. If I eat carbage I start hurting and burning. I was off meds for several years but discovered I do better on the meds. I don't take them as often as prescribed because I don't need to. I take at night: Elmiron, neurontin, and hydroxizine. I still have flare ups in the spring and summer usually.
