7 Videos About Bladder Issues and MS That Might Interest You
According to the National MS Society, approximately 80 percent of MS patients experience some sort of bladder dysfunction. It’s caused by MS lesions which block or delay the signals in the central nervous system that control the bladder and urinary sphincters. While most issues are treatable, they’re quite irritating and can negatively impact patients’ quality of life. Common symptoms include frequency and/or urgency of urination, difficulty starting urination, frequent nighttime urination, incontinence and the inability to empty bladder.
