I hope you can help. My wife has multiple sclerosis and recently she seems to be suffering with bladder incontinence. When it happens large amounts of urine leaks but she has hardly any warning. I’m completely new to this and am unsure If this could be linked or what products I need to purchase to help her?
Yes, experiencing incontinence is common in people with Multiple Sclerosis. Your wife is definitely not alone in having this.
You mention her having no warning prior to the heavy leaks, which is a symptom overflow incontinence. Do not worry, this can be treated in many cases and is very common. You can read more about the symptoms of overflow incontinence here.
As your wife has large leakages, she requires products with a high absorbency level. The most absorbent products available are all-in-ones, which fit completely around the body and can be fastened with tapes. Alternatively, if she would prefer the feel of stretchy pants, you can purchase pull up pants.
The product you choose depends strongly on an individual’s mobility. Is your wife mobile and active or immobile?
