Hi @ncm22, yes, bladder and uti infections are unfortunately more common with MS. The condition often cases bladder issues/weakness too. This often means that even if you don’t realise, the bladder doesn’t always completely empty when you pee. This can leave a small pool which, if not drained/flushed away, can easily nurture bacteria and that’s where it all starts. Always get your GP/nurse to do a dip urine test. These days I always take a sample with me, rather that get there and expect to produce one. Annoying though this is, keep drinking water so you are continually flushing the system through.
