Gotta Go? Well, it Depends

Embarrassed? Feel as if you regressed? Feel like a baby? Anna, a young woman with MS, expressed those feelings in an article about her experiences with incontinence.

Incontinence is a symptom that affects 80% of MSers, and it’s embarrassing. You don't want to confess your problem and you don't want to be "caught" in public, so it certainly contributes to isolation.

There are different types or levels of incontinence, from “urgency” where your body tells you it’s time to go and it means NOW, to the total disruption of the nerve signals that tell you it’s time to go.

WebMD has an excellent article that discusses the types of problems, various ways of handling the problem and treatments.
