Interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia

Question from Jean of California

I have had interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome for about six years now. None of the standard treatments have helped any of it (DMSO, ELAVIL, LEVSIN, Elmiron (compassionate use), or ATARAX). But I just took AUGMENTIN for 4 wks ( I’ve been off it for two weeks now) and find that my IC and fibromyalgia are a whole lot better, and the irritable bowel problems are a little better. Why would this have helped if IC is not supposed to be a bacterial disease? Can I go on and off antibiotics to keep the symptoms reduced without any problems, long-term?

Dear Jean:

Antibiotics are known to have some intrinsic antiinflammatory properties. It is conceivable that you may have benefited from this effect decreasing inflammation. Alternatively, you might have had an active bacterial cystitis (bladder infection).

Symptoms of fibromyalgia can improve when underlying illnesses are quieted.

As to future treatments, please consult your doctor regarding what would be the best approach in your particular case.
