I’m 24 and a guy and back in March I caught coronavirus, I wasn’t very well with this at the time and spent about a week in hospital for recovery. Now due to how unwell I was my memory isn’t the best but I do remember that it was during this time I started wetting myself when I was asleep. Never in my adult life I had an accident. I believe I have always had a weaker bladder because I have always had frequent trips to the loo. Now we are in well nearly November. I have continued to wet myself most nights. I will have leaks during the day if I don’t keep on top of going to the loo. Just it seems odd that after an illness this has occurred and now just seems to be getting progressively worse. Is there any treatments for this or will I have to just manage this with things like nappies as my GP was very disinterested when I brought it up.
I’ve suffered with an overactive bladder since childhood, which got progressively worse through my 30’s, and didn’t do anything about it until I reached my 50’s. I’ve upgraded now to maximum protection nappies as my incontinence has got gradually worse. I have been to my GP who prescribed Tamsulosin, but I hated the side effects, so now I’m just living with it day to day. It’s unlikely they’d check you prostate because of your age, but as you’re still young, they should at least be referring you to urology at least. Wearing nappies now is far less embarrassing than the accidents I was having, and I’m still a young 52 year old who is reasonably fit. Hope you get sorted.
