You may have problems starting to urinate or emptying your bladder all the way. Your bladder may empty too often or at the wrong time. Your bladder may become too full, and you may leak urine.
To help with bladder problems, your doctor may prescribe medicine. Some people with multiple sclerosis need to use a urinary catheter. This is a thin tube that is inserted into your bladder.
Your health care provider may also teach you some exercises to help you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles.
Urinary infections are common in people with multiple sclerosis. Learn to recognize the symptoms, such as burning when you urinate, fever, low back pain on one side, and a more frequent need to urinate.
DO NOT hold your urine. When you feel the urge to urinate, go to the bathroom. When you are not at home, take note of where the nearest bathroom is.
