I don't know where else to post this, but I know, as someone who suffers from this, that information on interstitial cystitis is really hard to find. But it's a horrible thing to live with so I'm going to post my home remedy.
When I first feel it coming on, I take tylenol. Quite a bit of tylenol. And put about two or three teaspoons of baking soda into a bottle of water and CHUG it. I do this IMMEDIATELY when I feel a flare up coming on. If you catch it early, it'll reduce the duration.
Keep taking quite a bit of tylenol throughout the whole duration of the flare up, and try to drink at least half a water bottle of baking soda water a day. A whole one, if you can. Do this everyday. When you stop feeling the inflammation, do it for three more days after you've stopped feeling symptoms. You should be better in about 10 to 16 days, depending on how strict you are with it. And while you're having the flare up, it'll only irritate you when you go to urinate. It'll be irritating for about 10 seconds and then you will be fine.

ICC is a horror with no cure, devastating side effects including divorce bc no spouse can believe such a condition exists, excruciating pain and depression (see above. If you can find a female urologist run-don't walk run fast-to her.

Female uro majors are more likely to be found in a medical school clinic. Dr. Tracey Wilson at Kirklan Clinic in Birmingham, Alabama is fantastic.

Try to avoid dark color beverages of all types but especially anything with caffeine.

OTC meds like AZO - I use max strength-every day several times a day has been the only thing that has helped me.

Sex (what's that?): seriously take AZO
(two or three is you are really bad) about 10-30 minutes prior. Unfortunately you know that the best way for a woman to achieve orgasm is also the very best way to trigger a Gosh-awful ICC attack.

I have no ideas other than the AZO for helping with sex. One supposes you can do missionary the rest of your life but that is no fun.

If you can find a good urologist who will refer you to a great pain management doctor (thank you DEA for making me go see a specialist at twice the cost every single month plus expensive drug tests and other useless manure just to get laid by my husband)
you can take vicodin or something similar prior to and after and that will help with the pain.

I know there are really no home remedies here-I know of none since ICC is not an infection but a chronic condition for which there is no cure and not much to help.

Anybody with more suggestions please tell us.

I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH PAIN IN MY UTERUS FOR 2YEARS(SUFFERING)... I HAVE HAD SEVERAL GYNECOLOGIST DIAGNOSE WITH ME UTI WHICH I KNOW I DID NOT HAVE, THEY WERE CONSTANTLY GIVING ME ANTIBIOTICS. I WOULD THEN HAVE NO RELIEF OR TEMPORAIRLY RELIEF SO I BEGAN RESEARCHING ON MY OWN AND LATER HAD A LAPRISCOPY FOUND A LARGE FIBROID BEHIND MY UTERUS SO I WENT TO MY GYNO TO GET PREP FOR A PARTIAL HYSTERCTOMY AND I SAW ON THE WALL ONCE AGAIN INFO. ABOUT IC THAT I HAD TOLD MY GYNO WHEN I FIRST WENT TO SEE HIM THAT IS WHAT I BELIEVE I HAVE HE LISTENED TO ME THISTIME AND CANCELED THE PROCEDURE FOR THE HYSTERCTOMY~HE THEN HANDS ME MORE INFO. ON TREATING IC AND PLACED ME ON ELMIRON. LATER ON THAT DAY AFTER TAKING ELMIRON I RESEARCHED ON THE SIDE EFFECTS NO WAY WAS I TAKING ANYMORE SO I RESEARCHED NATURAL PRODUCTS TO REPLACE ELMIRON, AND I CAME UP WITH 1ST. 1/2 TEASPOON OF BAKING SODA TO PLACE THE ALKALINE IN YOUR BODY RELIEVED PAIN INSTANTLY!!! I WAS SO OVERWHELEMD BY THIS NATURAL RESULT I THOUGHT ABOUT FOR 2YEARS THIS WAS IN MY FRIDGE ALL THIS TIME! IT WORKS THANK GOD FOR ME ALSO KNOWING MY BODY I DIAGNOSED MY SELF WITH THIS BLADDER DISEASE DISORDER. DOCTORS WERE NOT LISTENING I ALSO WAS TAKING AZO & PYRIDUM FOR A YEAR BECAUSE IT SEEM LIKE THAT WAS THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD REDUCE THE PAIN A LITTLE UNTIL IT BECAME JUST UNBAREABLE I HAD BEEN TO EMERGENCY ROOM EVERY MONTH FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AND MORPHINE WAS THE ONLYTHING THAT WOULD RELIEVE THE UNBEARABLE PAIN OF IC~

hope you will get to see this, but since it's been a few years ....

Anyway, just wanted to warn you if you haven't found out the hard way already, overdosing on acetiminophen (tylenol) can cause liver failure.

Hopeful

I can't believe you take loads of tylenol. You better check that one with your doctor. Tylenol affects the liver big time. And never never chug baking soda and water. Wow I don't know where u have gotten your info but gooood luck. You are slowly destroying yourself. Read how to drink that stuff and never chug it. Best of luck to you.
