If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

sandieby – It may well be that ascorbic acid irritates the bladder causing interstitial cystitis. I suspect that insulin also irritates the bladder; insulin is an extremely irritating hormone substance – I have not checked the Hall's ingredients label, but I would guess that sorbitol, xylitol, or some other sweetener is in there triggering increased insulin secretion.

Just my line of thinking…
My hypothesis: excess insulin (hyperinsulinemia) plays a major role in MS, as developed in my initial post: http://www.thisisms.com/forum/general-discussion-f1/topic1878.html "Insulin – Could This Be the Key?"

Hi. I am new to this site. Really glad I found it though. I was diagnosed with M.S. in 1981. I have had bladder issues for most of that time, but always believed them to be related to M.S. Perhaps they were, but somewhere along the line the pain just getting worse. I saw another urologist and was diagnosed with I.C. I am taking Elmiron ( 4 pills daily) and sometimes receive what my doctor calls a "cocktail" which they inject into bladder, once a week for six weeks. Sometimes it helps and sometimes not. I really believe I.C has a mind of its own.

lubbie - i am intrigued by your 4x a day for elmiron = have u always taken it that way? i take mine 3x day and was taking it 2 @nite 1 in the morning and figured i should probably take it 3 times a day spread out evenly.......did that and didn't change anything. now that i am on macrobid - i don't think it matters what time of day i take it = interesting:)
