Symptoms Of Celiac May Be Associated With Ic

Recommended Posts

I noticed many of you show symptoms of Interstitial Cystitis. For those who did not know IC is associated with Celiac, IBS, Fibromayalgia, etc. IC is a non curable bladder disease, and can be read about here www.ichelp.org I have lived with this since I was at least 12 and can answer any questions if possible. Good luck, we are stronger than most!

I can't remember if I have this or not.  I do have some bladder issues.  The doc wanted to stick up a tube to take a look to see if the bladder was irritated.  I knew it was irritated.  I looked up the treatment for the problem they were looking for and it would be following a diet.  7/10 things on the diet I already knew to be a problem.  I opted to not do the test and just avoid the three other foods.  Since going gluten free and recovering my bladder has usually been peaceful.  I would be interested in hearing more about this problem if it is what I am talking about.  I am curious to know if my bladder will eventually tolerate these things.

 

I checked and IC is what I thought.  Chocolate and tomato were on the list.  I would like to see that it is connected with celiac and if there must be strict avoidance of all irritants, or if it causes only temporary symptoms.

I was diagnosed with IC in Feb of this year and it was kind of a stepping stone to controlling my problems. I still have issues though. I take prelief wit meals, trying glucosamine and marshmallow root. my symptoms get worse if I drink something acidic or if I am close to my period. Sometimes I have to wake up over 5 times in the middle of the night. It's frustrating. I went through the instillations but I didn't make it to the final one due to the fact that the specialist was going on holidays for 2 weeks and they could not be performed without him being present in the hospital. All of my symptoms came back and I just couldn't be bothered to drive the hour and wait 3 hours at the hospital for another 6 weeks.  So it was a waste of time for the 4 weeks I had them. I've heard of people being able to do them themselves at home.
