i am a 74 year old male and have recently noticed sudden leaking at night. I have woken up completely drenched and can’t believe this is happening. I have never had a problem with incontinence before. Can anyone recommend any advice on what to do??? I haven’t told my wife.
Thanks for your question. It can help to know that many more than you think experience this problem, it is just rarely spoken of. As your incontinence is so sudden, I would definitely recommend visiting a Doctor for a scan. Don’t worry about this too much, Doctors discuss this topic frequently and it is vital to ensure there is no serious issue.
Do you have any known problems with the brain or spine? Problems such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease can commonly cause bladder issues.
Lastly, are you drinking a lot of fluid before bed?
