Nearly 80% of multiple sclerosis patients in a large registry reported overactive bladder symptoms, and more than one-third of newly diagnosed patients in a different cohort also had urinary dysfunction, researchers reported here.

Analysis of questionnaires returned by 8,380 participants in the registry operated by the North American Committee on MS (NARCOMS) indicated that 6,392 of them reported overactive bladder -- including 5,159 who said they had urgency-related leakage, according to Stacey S.

I don't know if I have MS. They found a lesion in my brain that they think is a vascular malformation. They haven't ruled it out though. I will say accidents are a once or twice a week thing with me.
