Unsure  of how  things will go

Sometimes I think  it's  better  to talk to  fellow  Ms'ers about  things will  it be possible to get advice on incontinence  of the bowels

This is so embarrassing , I get the urge/feeling  I want to open my bowels and then I  can't  control them 

Any help please????

Appreciated  VERY  much ThanksXx p

Hello members, how are you today? Have you ever experienced bowel urgency and/or incontinence in parallel with your MS? How did you handle it? Do you know if it was caused by MS itself or the treatments?

@JayneMason Yes I've started having some bowel issues as well. My specialist said it was the medicines I'm taking. Maybe it's that for you as well? How was your appointment?

I once had an accident wished I could vanish felt so embarrassed. Now I take an imodium before I leave my home. Better to be safe than sorry.

These stories are very familiar i too don't get much notice when i need to go i have increased my fluid intake which has helped but my carers now know the routine and are good because sometimes i get very frustrated when i want to go but can't i try not to focus on my bowels as i want to be in control not them (sometimes it's hard) keep well everybody 🌈

It's difficult focusing on my bowel when it's totally unpredictable. If I take medication to slow down my bowel when I go out. My bowel is sluggish for days. I'd love to hear your views on this matter. It's difficult being in a new relationship with this problem. Even though my fiancee has irritable bowel. We end up laughing about the situation as theres nothing we can do

I've had a couple of embarrassing moments. Part of my plan is always to know where my emergency loo is. I had a minor panic when I had to board a light aircraft for part of a particular journey - no loos there!

Pretty sure it is MS related.

@JayneMason‍ How are you feeling? Were you able to speak with your neurologist? Were they able to provide any clarity on this for you? 

Take care,

Well hello everyone happy new year. I find ms unpredictable. Alas it's like most parts of my life. I take the ups with the downs quite well. Having had ms forty years helps. To me ms is normal. I've had ms more of my life than not. Hopefully this vaccine wont be too long. Weve enough to worry about. I'm a fighter now it works for me. No point getting down. Take care God Bless you all
