I can feel a flare up coming on and I feel so helpless to stop it. I feel blessed that I know it's coming but it's a double edged sword if I can't do anything about it. Does anyone have any advise for stopping a flare up? I am currently taking Solifenacin which does hold back my symptoms but I also feel when I get a flare up it is 10 times worse than before it was prescribed and when I felt ill all the time.
My last flare up resulted in bed wetting, a week off work and a total meltdown for me mentally which I have never suffered before, I feel living a normal life with horrific bouts of the illness is sometimes worse than coping with it 24/7. Does that sound insane?

Also.."Does that sound insane?"

Bless you, nothing sounds insane with this dreadful dis -ease, we certainly all understand and will always listen. We are all different and react differently, so sadly there is no quick fix, or a solution that will work for everyone.Which is why treatment is so long winded. Doh!

Do keep posting.
Kind regards
