I found I was prone to UTIs post intercourse, which always responded to antibiotics and cranberry. Many UTIs later, I took the antibiotics (Cipro maybe?) and the UTI went away... and so did the urgency, but a slightly different pain began - It no longer hurt to urinate, instead, it felt like I had razors in my bladder AFTER I urinated. I could literally feel the initial drops of urine enter my bladder and the 'lemon juice on a cut' pain would linger for a while. Symptoms were also much more mild by day, and worsened by night. They were LARGELY rid of when I started taking glucosamine about 3 years ago and it got to the point that I could go longer and longer in between suppliments and still be fine... Suddenly, this is no longer the case - and I'm obviously very upset. I really thought I had won this battle. There is no detectable infection. I hear so much about IC, but it seems to always be associated with urgency - this is NOT a problem for me... in fact, the feeling gets much better when the bladder has had time to partially fill. Does ANYONE know what I'm talking about/have suggestions? Thanks so muchReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
