My husband has tried the water treatment with huge success and has been in remission now for 9 months because of it. It is a glass of water every 1/2 hour (or at least every hour) while awake, then again if you wake up in the night. He saw results within two days but you do have to stick with it. His cycle was completely gone within a week. Check with your doc, as there are precautions to take and if you have kidney probs then you really need to be careful. It doesn't work for everyone but it may be worth a shot.
Also, he uses ice bags to bring down the pain, Dramamine before bed to avoid the middle of the night attack, inhaling pure Oxygen at the onset.
Hope you find some relief soon.
