Muscle or nerve...: Problems. The bladder's purpose is to store urine then empty fully. If the muscle is unable to accommodate urine or squeeze to expel it, it will function poorly. The muscles are controlled by nerves, which deliver the sense of filling, then coordinate muscle contraction. Ms, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, bladder thickening, obstruction, scarring, interstitial cystitis, can affect these systems.
