> What to do?


The ultimate cause of IU is unknown at this point and no research has been conducted to provide information regarding the triggers of IU. Based on our group of IU sufferers’ anecdotal reports the most commonly reported triggers are (1) activities, such as lifting heavy things, walking, standing, exercising, & having orgasm, and (2) health related issues, such as dehydration, a full bladder, stress, hydronephrosis, urinary tract infection, & constipation, may all trigger the occurrence of IU. In addition, few IU sufferers also reported that wearing tight pants, and being out of shape may cause IU. One of our objectives is to begin the effort of collecting additional information about IU. A survey to collect information from IU sufferer is currently underway.

Following are experiences and suggestions provided by our group of IU sufferers.
