I have had IC, endometriosis for five years since I was a senior in High School. It took 2 years to find someone who knew about IC and I had ulcertive IC to begin with. I have had the Hydrodistention and tried lots of medications. I am allergic to pyridium and Elmiron makes me really sick. I was going to do be to major in dance and be on stage the rest of my life and this disorders wouldn't allow it, and I feel it has taken alot of my life. It has ruined relationships and me and my family's relationships because they think I am a wimp about how bad it hurts. I have been taking tramadol for the pain and it is no longer enough. I am in nursing school and want to be a nurse practitioner and help others with this disease. I need some other advice on how to live with this??? I am having a really hard time dealing lately..
