Adult Onset Bedwetting In Women
Several nonenhancing WML frontal lobe. Adult onset bed wetting. Numb toes for3 years. Horrific day migraines. Docs are stumped. Any ideas?

The eeg findings might be consistent with brain irritability, and you could conceivably having nocturnal seizures causing bladder problems.

Theoretically, one may assume "yes" as your answer because bed wetting at young results from delayed maturity & adaptation of nerve system, leading to be "less perfect" than others; so aging + "less perfect" = more so at older age. This is a thesis; you... ...Read more

Oxybutinin may also 'relax bladder' with 'small bladder'. ...Read more

See your OB/GYN: It sounds like your pelvic floor is weak. Having children, previous surgeries, large fibroids and time/age can weaken the muscle leading to enuresis just to name a few causes. Kegel exercises can help strengthen the pelvic floor. However, please consider having this evaluated ASAP since you are wetting at night and when you stand up. ...Read more
