Question re. Before a flare

Hi all hope your day is not too bad today. If it is sending🤗 to you.

I have noticed that before a bad flare that I am constantly urinating, maybe a day or so before flare happens. Just out of curiosity does this happen to anyone else? Maybe it’s just me!!

I agree Benne09 :-/ pain and inflammation is a huge issue for me too, a GP I saw a few years ago said that my body was producing too much adrenaline when I was in pain which increased the urine flow.

In addition to this I have been trying to reduce my coffee intake, for years and years I only used to drink the occasional filter coffee and for some reason started drinking instant coffee which I feel has really made things soooo much worse, I was having to go to the loo within 30 minutes of having each cup, now having reduced to a couple of cups a day I have noticed a difference and more so when I have none :-)

Not just you, no!! I pee so much and my kidneys hurt!! I think it is pretty miserable. I asked my rheumatologist about it and he didn’t know. But I know because it happens every time and is the only time I pee like that. I’m going to a BD expert soon and am going to go over all my problems with her.

Yes. I can tell when a flare is coming on or in action.

Can’t go anywhere without knowing where the closest restroom is. And it needs to be close!

We thought it was just me.

Thanks for bring this up.

Have a great day all.

We are all in this together, interesting how this happens though. I guess it’s good to share. I felt silly sharing but noticed it happens everytime.

Wishing all a good day today 🤗

My IC gets really sever before a flare. My urine also darkens like I’m dehydrated even though I shouldn’t be because I drinking adequate fluids. I feel less crazy now, this board really helps.
