Multiple sclerosis is a disease that disrupts the nerve signals from the brain to various parts of the body. For some MS patients, this could mean signals to the bladder muscles are compromised leading to urinary problems such as urgency, needing the bathroom throughout the night, and incontinence.
There are ways to help MS patients manage urinary problems and we’ve put together a list of useful tips based on information from WebMD.com.
Changes in Diet
Limiting the amount of fluid you consume during the day and particularly in the evening may help to relieve some urinary problems. Excess caffeine and alcohol may also cause problems so either avoid or severely limit your consumption of these.
