Many people with MS experience bladder or bowel problems and some of these can cause occasional incontinence, where control of the bladder or bowel is lost. Fear of having a bladder or bowel accident can be very worrying and can affect all aspects of life including work, social life and relationships.
There are many successful approaches to treating and managing both bladder and bowel incontinence. Health professionals including your MS specialist nurse, GP and continence services can work with you to find the solutions that work best for you.
