With my mountain of health problems. I now seem to have slightly lost bladder control too. Not in a major way but enough to be embarrassing.

Going to the doctors Wednesday though have a feeling its down to either a Ueretha problem or pelvic floor issue from a past injury (im good at injurying myself).

At 26 though I feel pretty #ty about it, my friends are all supportive and don't care. But still 26?

Plus another thing to add to my list of:
IBS
Delayed sleep phase disorder
Depression
Dyspraxia

All this and in the early stages of running a business.

If there was a example of a genetic disaster it me
Tempted to get a vasectomy soon to insure I dont spread my awful genetics onwards


My little rant anyway.

Find a good doctor Bro...

There has got to be something they can do.

Best of luck. You're too young to have these type of problems.

Yeah im the sort of person who will make a fuss to a doctor until they get fed up and refer me to the best


This is were my medical knowledge fall short. I can run rings around doctors on microbiology and immunology but no idea on these matter or if there is surgery solutions. Hell im scared on what the tests will be

When you empty your bladder, can you continue urinating afterward in small spurts? It might be an anti-diuretic hormonal problem, in which case it can be treated. Have you measured the total volume of urine you are producing in a day?

If it isn't related to urine production, I'd try kegel exercises. A certain member of my family has irregular muscles that increased their likelihood of bedwetting, and he was able to correct this problem after merely six weeks of those exercises daily. I don't fully understand the issues he has had, because when he was born, his urethra wasn't coming out of the right place and he had to have corrective surgery to put it where it belonged, but I guess the muscles in his bladder are reversed or something because he says he has to relax to stop his urine flow and squeeze to start it up. I'm not a urologist, but maybe something along those lines might help you out.

Na it after I urinate. I do what I can to shake and clear what left but 5 minutes later a load comes out randomly. Also I can get spats of a irritable bladder when for about 2 hours it wont hold anything and im stuck on the toilet for 2 hours.

As for what I produce its a lot as I drink (no alcohol) a lot as im a big guy 230lb 6,2" and get thirsty quick.

Non diabetic ( was tested a few months back on a free NHS test) no bed wetting ect

Are you on any meds presently? Don't be blaming your genetics, many of these genetic problems do not have to be expressed. Diet can keep these in check a lot of the time.

Four days of supplementing with taurine supplementation and I go pee less often and my kidneys seem to be feeling better. I quit taking it because I had the hypoglycemic spins because I didn't eat anything one morning and went out cutting, hauling, and splitting wood. I know better than to do that, I have had hypoglycemia all my life.

I'm going to start taking it once a week from now on. I don't eat much raw/rare meats, the wife likes everything well done.

Now, I can't say this is going to work for anyone else, the kidney/bladder benefits seem to be a beneficial side effect of what I was testing with the taurine. Taurine supplementation does help with four kinds of diseases in kidneys and liver though from what I learned from my curiosity as to what helped me. It can possibly help to repair the filtering section of the kidneys in some circumstances . I have no clue what actually happened but there were no real changes in my diet other than that and a small increase in proteins that were associated with this event. So in my case, I feel it had something to do with the taurine. Now, I was having more energy and when I made wood those four days with that extra energy, I sweat a lot. The taurine gave me the extra energy though, I would not have got that sweaty if I hadn't taken it. The taurine kept my TLE at bay so I could reach that energy level without worrying about seizures. Maybe the sweating actually lowered the toxins in the body, sweating gets rid of lots of toxins. It is not just for cooling.

Sorry for getting off topic. Without knowing if you are taking meds, I can't give recommendations. The above was just an example of some testing and conclusions that I have done on myself.

Oh, another thing, if I take my multivitamin/multimineral pill, I have less of a problem peeing too often. No clue as to what part is doing that. I take a methylcobalamin occasionally in the evening and the same thing happens, I sleep without having to get up after five or six hours to go pee. I only sleep six hours to seven hours max anyway, So I wind up with a sore neck and headache when I sleep more than six hours if I sleep soundly on my back all night. Solve one problem and cause another unrelated one.

Well, it could be a bladder infection or UTI. It could still be low ADH, especially if you are excessively thirsty. People with this condition often drink 5-15L of water per day, which is abnormal even for larger people. A simple blood panel can test your ADH levels. I'd have it done just to be safe. Best of luck.

Seeing your last post now. It could also be meds. I know I've heard of antidepressents or something like that effecting ADH levels. It might be a rather straightforward problem to remedy.

Not a infection I know that much. It my small area of medical expertise. But yeah a pituitary problem has crossed my mind due to other condition I have.

stop feeling sorry for yourself!

My Sister is completely blind... had both of her eyes removed in 1996. She had a stroke in 1995 and still walked blind with a frame to rehabilitate herself everyday. For about 6 months, she had to wear a catheter and thick stockings in 40 + degree heat. Now she is walking without a frame and using her cane again. After 2 guide dogs, she doesn't want another one.

stop winging.

Another person in my extended family had a car accident... nearly wiped out by a truck...she is 20 years old and has to wear a bag for the rest of her life.

If I was truely feeling sorry for myself Id sit and home and do nothing and give up my business and live off disability.


At 26 I think I have the right to be a bit pissed at being lumped with health problems.

rather than think of the things you cannot do or are troubling you... change your perspective. Think of all the things you still have and can do.

no need to feel pissed off with your situation.

So sorry to hear this is happening to you. IBS can cause urinary incontinence by weakening the pelvic floor muscles or PC muscles and causing prolapse of the bladder. Over time, it can also cause rectal prolapse due to straining.

I am sure your doctor has already ruled out chronic conditions such as Celiac and Chron's diseases as an underlying cause of your IBS, but there are quite a lot of other autoimmune type disorders that can wreak havoc on the digestive system and I hope they are being aggressive in ruling out every possibility.

My heart goes out to you and I wish you the very best and a positive outcome so that you can live the rest of your life without being chained by your medical issues.

Its a good way to look at it.

But first I want to get down to the bottom of WHY I have all these issues. what's the underlying issue. genetics, environments? OK I don't expect a miracle cure but would be nice too know?

At the end of the day yes I can live with wearing diaper and its a small thing even compared with some of the bigger health issues on my list.

And yeah I have had all the horrible IBS tests done back in my teens when it struck. Lucky not Chrons, I know someone who have had that and its a horrible thing watching a 28 year old spend half her life in surgery having necrotic bowel removed.
