Hello all, I'm wondering if other people get confusing messages from bladder and bowel, i.e. 'need to go... don't need to go' once you get to the toilet. Very frustrating from the effort it takes me to get up/down & jeans off/on again. My husband says it's all in my mind, but I'm pretty sure it's the faulty wiring of my nerves firing. Any body else with a better explanation? Thanks, Wendy

@drwendy I have the same with regards bowel (I’m catheterised so no bladder malfunction/mixed messages). It’s frustrating, especially as I have to be Sarah-steadied to the commode, so tell your husband that. Faulty wiring is to blame for a lot of MS foibles in my book.xx


It’s definitely NOT in your mind unless he is meaning the attacks on your brain from ms attacks! I am amazed at the ignorance of some people.
