For me IC symptoms are the same as UTI symptoms..burning, painful bladder when I go pee, urgency without much urine, ect. I went into remission years ago when I became pregnant.
I will say that after dealing with IC for a few years that I kinda panic when I feel any bladder discomfort. I go straight to the abx when I suspect infection because they are hard to get rid of for me/ reoccur once they start.
My period and pms have made it kinda confusing for me since I feel bloated and need to urinate a lot more now. So I try to drink lots of fluids and watch my urine color as a precaution. If I start to feel twinges/pain then I try to eat and drink gently..not too much acid, caffeine, or spicy food.

They say it helps for at first , but then the urgency returns again after a few months.
The one thing that I have noticed is red wine is a no-no for me. I actually had to mix a spoon of baking soda in a glass of water the last two times I had red wine. Riesling for me.
|With Type 2 Hypothyroidism, the thyroid gland produces “normal” amounts of hormone, but the cells are unable to utilize the hormone properly. Some experts call this thyroid hormone resistance (which may be regarded as similar to insulin resistance).
Laboratory tests showing inadequate bloodstream levels of thyroid hormone make it easy to diagnose Type 1 hypothyroidism. However, lab tests fail to detect Type 2 hypothyroidism, because despite adequate bloodstream hormone levels, the cells are unable to accept and utilize that hormone (for a variety of reasons...
