Multiple Sclerosis Fact #7

MS LifeLines
When it comes to relapsing MS, you don’t really “get” it, until you get it. That includes experiencing tough-to-talk-about symptoms like bowel and bladder issues. We’re here to help.
If you’ve experienced increased frequency in urination, urgency to urinate, incontinence, constipation, or other bowel/bladder problems, you’re not alone. That’s because some MS lesions can block or delay nerve messages that control the bladder and bowel. Get tips for dealing with these problems by either talking to your doctor or going to: bit.ly/MSLLsymptoms_bowel_bladderbit.ly/MSLLsymptoms_bowel_bladder


I really hate to harp on this age old theme, just like I am so tired of listening to the rhetoric of the current presidential debates. Unlike the arguments leading up to this year's national election, this issue is pertinent. 

Today I have the opportunity to do something new and I am very excited about it. I am official "reader" for West Virginia Read Aloud. This morning I will read to a third grade class at our town's elementary school. It is only for twenty minutes and I m relatively comfortable with the "lay of the land", so I shouldn't have an issue with bladder control. Should I?

Just thinking about it makes me want to relieve the ol' bag of urine. The problem is...I do not always know when that is going to happen until it is too late.

So, how do I combat this? I do not drink anything prior to attending said event. Sounds like a good idea. Until my body remind me that I am not hydrated with a stinging urge to purge the bladder. Yep. It is that fast. UTI symptoms seem to be just waiting for a chance to taunt me. It's crazy.

I have to leave you now for my reading debut, but I will return to this topic soon. 

Looking for suggestions. How do you deal with this Multiple Sclerosis Fact #7? (I am also looking for a complete set of these animated MS Facts.)

Stay dry,
Lisa
