Hello Everyone who is suffering from IC/Painful Bladder Syndrome. I wanted to write to you all urgently as I have just found a solution that works for me so I'm guessing it may work for many others. I have had 3 years of suffering IC and have had my bladder stretched and instilations. I tried every diet with no success. I bought Desert Harvest tablets which had no effect. My symptoms were a cycle of either wanting constantly to pee or else suffering chronic, severe pain in my bladder and pelvic area. After trying amitriptyline and every antibiotic going I was still getting no relief. Anyway to cut a long story short as a last resort a doctor prescribed me Gabapentin 300mg which I took 1 per day for 3 days, then 2 for 3 days and then 3 tablets. After only half an hour of taking the first tablet I felt an improvement and by the time I took 3 per day my pain and urgency had completely disappeared for the first time in 3 years. This drug is usually for epilepsy but is also used to treat neuropathic pain (long lasting pain caused by damage to the nerves.) For me the symptoms of IC were, I suppose, due to damage to the nerves rather than any of the other possible causes. Please try this drug as there are bound to be some of you who are suffering these debilitating symptoms for the same reason. This drug has been life changing for me and I feel I now have my life back. I hope this helps.
