9. Bowel and bladder control issues
Your bladder is another part of your body that you may start having issues with. Urinary incontinence is pretty common among MS patients, and here’s what you can do about it:
• Consider limiting caffeine and alcohol, which can be bladder irritants. However, cutting back on your fluids can cause further complications. Try strategically planning your fluid intake based on your schedule. For example, drink more during the times of day when you are home or close to a bathroom.
• Try to urinate every two hours to help train your bladder and avoid drinking too much after dinner to limit trips to the bathroom throughout the night.
• Aim to drink enough water to keep your urine light yellow.
