... hair loss). I'm waiting for a ct scan of my colon. Has anyone else had these symptoms?
I was too scared to take Elmiron orally because of the possible bleeding. I just go to the doctor for bladder instills. She uses heparin, solukortef, lidocaine and it helps me. I started with weekly instills and now on monthly schedule. I swear by these instills and very careful about the no caffeine, chocolate, spicy food diet. the diet is essential. I had such bladder pain last year I was on all kinds of pain killers and amnitripline and nothing worked and side effects were awful. Try the instills. sometimes you have to go 2x a week in the beginning but they do work, at least for me. Also I have a intravaginal stim machine that I use every other day. It helps the nerves relax.
