I've been going threw hell for over 16 years I'm only 39 and the pain that I go threw is unbelievable, I've done elmiron didn't work I was given narcos at first it was 30 a month and ended up being 120 Cuz the pain would start after 4 Hrs... I'd be in so much pain that I'd screaming I want to die and I'd tell my Dr that also... Well now I'm trying Valium suppositories and they seem to do a lil something with a narco also, I just got on the Valium after trying everything you can think of... I feel very bad for the I.c people its a struggle with the drs with this disease cause most Dont know much about it...
