Interstatial Cystitis

Interstatial Cystitis

Hi does anyone out there deal with IC or painful bladder syndrome? I am in so much pain now. It is unrelenting. I feel discouraged and overwhelmed at times. So wore out. I have tried everything but nothing is working. I made an appointment with the urologist. Not sure what else to do.

Has Anyone Had The AstraZeneca Vaccine?

Has Anyone Had The AstraZeneca Vaccine?

Has anyone have a bad reaction to the AstraZeneca Vaccine? In Australia the Government is making those people over 50 years old and Older we have to have the AstraZeneca Vaccine and those people under 50 years old will have the Pfizer Vaccine.
Worried because the AstraZeneca Vaccine is known to cause Blood Clots.

Itchy Back And Help Moisturising

Itchy Back And Help Moisturising

I have always had sensitive skin, esspecially to light touch and allergens. But recently it has been so much worse. I am itching and scratching all day.

The worst part of my back as I can't reach it well.
I have a back scratcher that I use and that helps, I was wondering if anybody has seen any helpful tool to help moisturise your back when you can't reach? And where to get them?

I hate having to ask my mum every day to do it for me.

Supplement Recommendations?

Supplement Recommendations?

I started Magnesium Citrate, Probiotics and Collagen Peptides yesterday. The magnesium is good for relaxing muscles, nerves, bone and heart health. The probiotics is to fix issues with my gut and has 8 billion cpu’s. The collagen peptides help my joints, hair, skin and nails. Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated. None of my medications will interfere with any supplements I checked that out ahead of time. Thanks for your help, it’s greatly appreciated. 💜🌻

Goosebumps?

Goosebumps?

I see a lot of posts asking about random patches of goosebumps, but what about in general? I've noticed that the past few months since I had my son that when I flare I get goosebumps easily? Stress, hot, cold, just because? I can always feel them coming but can't always pinpoint the reason.

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I usually get goosebumps when I feel the same. Usually I'm stressed when I feel hot and cold

Lower Left Abdominal Pain?

Lower Left Abdominal Pain?

Hi All,

Ok, so I tried searching this first and after going through hundreds of questions about my search, none of them were actually about lower left stomach pain. This started a few weeks ago and it was intense at first, but it's subsiding. However, it's not gone. It comes and goes. It also can be felt sometimes in the area where pants sit and a bit lower, like hip area. Almost the same feeling there as sciatic issues. The stomach pain even made it to the pelvic area sometimes. I don't think… read more
