Living with MS, you may find that bladder and bowel problems can limit daily activities and make leaving the house a stressful experience that requires a great deal of planning and preparation.
There are two main types of bladder problems that you can experience when living with MS:
- Your bladder may struggle to store urine which can leave you feel like you need to urinate frequently and sometimes with little warning
- Your bladder may not be able to empty fully which can also make you need to urinate more frequently
You may experience one and not the other, or you could experience both.
You are less likely to experience bowel incontinence than constipation, but the two can be linked.
