    Default There goes the bladder

    Aw for the love of Mike! Got up middle of night as usual, not particularly full, on way to bathroom bladder completely lost control. This is a first.

    Hoping it's isolated incident. Nice thing about surfing is surfers all pee in their suits. Did you know that? And in winter, do it purposefully into the wetsuit paddling out and sitting out there, as a way to warm up .

    Ya, never in a million years before taking up surfing would I imagine doing something like that on purpose. and paddling out after often allows just enough water in to semi flush the suit. You gotta just be sure to rinse it really good after :)

    I had an incident like this when I had pain from spasticity in my legs years ago. Somehow I lost temporary control of when my body would tell me to "go". I was also sick at the time which did not help.

    If you tell yourself it was a one-time thing, there's a much better chance that it will be a one-time thing. Or at least a very rare thing.

    That sounds really silly and superstitious but there's something to be said for staying optimistic.

    It's apt to happen to me if I'm overtired or have an infection or injury. For months after my latest fall, it was a problem. But there's always soap and water.

    I am of the think positive mind too. I call it deep denial :) every time I see the neuro I say, "so you're sure I have MS?" He must think I am nuts!

    I bet it was tied to increase dose of Baclofen. Maybe it is a temporary fluke. Soap and water... it was all over the floor. At 3:00 a.m. It brought to mind raising toddlers.

    This is a big problem for me. If it continues for you we can talk about ways to deal with it.

    Not to be completely pessimistic...but wait until your bowels fail you. Now THAT's unpleasant. There are techniques to help neurogenic bladder, and meds to treat it, if it does become a real issue. I thought baclofen was one of those? Anyway....watch fluid intake before bed. Wear protection to bed. Wetting the bathroom floor is bad enough; soiling your "nest" is worse..much worse....
    ...I am not a doctor nor medical professional, and don't pretend to be one, here... :o
