Would having MS or hemochromotosis be a reason to have a bowl movement in the middle of the night without knowing you had it?

Incontinence: Or involuntary loss of stool or urine is not uncommon in ms patients. This happens more often if you are having loose bm's.The sphincter muscles that prevent leakage can go out of synch with the bladder and rectal muscles. This is less likely with firm stool because people get into a 'bowel habit' and have bm's at a regular time of day. Urine leakage is more common.
