Irene,

I think cymbalta might have an impact on the urinary tract and bladder. I've noticed some urine retention and other UI related side effects.

I used to have chronic hematuria which disappeared about eight years ago. AD's with an anticholengeric effect always made it worse. My cure came in two parts: I had all my metal dental fillings replaced and it was about 90% better after that. Then a few years later, I attended a healing service at a church with laying on of hands and the bleeding stopped for good.

Have you tried supplements, herbs, or dietary measures? I really got involved in following an anti-candida diet - well, more like reading about it while washing down the supplements with beer. I've spent tens of thousands over the last 20 years on alternative medicine. Even now my monthly supplement costs are exorbiant.

I live in Fairfield Iowa, home to Maharishi University, so this town is flooded with every imaginable cure, self-help workshop, and healing ritual. Ayurvedic medicine is big here and I've read a lot of books on the subject and spent even more time not following the recommendations.

They divide food into three basic categories: pitta, vata, and kapha. Cystitis, and hematuria in my case, would be "pitta" problems. Pitta is anything - food, activity, emotion - that is heating and to be avoided in this case. Too much sun and anger are pitta aggravating for example. It makes sense - my hematuria got worse when I got too much sun.

I noticed that following a "cooling", pitta-reducing lifestyle helped in my case. Getting the metal out of my mouth - mercury, silver, and copper, to name a few ingredients in amalgam dental fillings, are mostly heating - especially mercury and copper according to ayurveda.

I hope this isn't too much information. The two books I use for reference are: "Ayurveda The Science of Self-Healing" by Vasant Lad and "The Yoga of Herbs" by David Frawley and Vasant Lad.

I'm hardly an example of ayurvedic success but I never was disciplined enough to stick with the plan for very long. I did notice improvement though when I did.

Hope that wasn't too big a tangent.
