How is your bladder playing up? Urgency/frequency or UTIs? You should have a chat with your MS Nurse about this.

There are meds available to relax your bladder, e.g. oxybutynin, Detrusitol, Vesicare.

Although, urgency/frequency can be caused by urine retention, i.e. not emptying properly. This can be resolved with Intermittent self-catheterisation. Not as bad as it sounds, honest.

UTIs can cause no end of problems, so this should be discounted.

Hope this helps.

Inquired about any meds with your nurse? I find the toilet issue is worse in my head than the actual problem, like if I think there’s no toilet near I all of a sudden need it more. Best to plan your routes as best as possible, knowing where there may be toilets and go when you can.
