Well one step at a time sweet Jesus. I have found out that I have interstitial cystitis. That explains my excess need to pee and all of the pelvic pain that I endure.
It doesn't, however, explain why I swell up and stay sleepy all of the time. Nor does it explain why my kidneys seem to lock up.
I will start a new diet today to try and clean all of the substances out of my body that make me sick. I will eat whole wheat and drink water for a couple of weeks until my pain is gone. Then I will add one thing at a time back to my diet. Although I am pretty sure everything that is indicitive to my syndrome irritates me.
Perfumes, lotions, soaps[cause my burning and my kidneys to lock up] pepper, spices, citric acids, my husband smokes, mgs, sugar, sweeteners, tea, coffee, anything sweet.
just bland meats and rice for me. I will learn to love just salt.
I go see my spinal surgeon in a few minutes. He wants to discuss surgery on my L-5 today.
God Bless me.
