I am a 74 yr old female diagnosed in 2011. This is my first post. My biggest issue with MS now is bowel incontinence. It sometimes is associated with diet and stress but other times not. I do have nerve damage in my spine that affects this. I will go for weeks between episodes without problems. But, it reoccurs and may be everyday for weeks. Some doctors say this is a part of MS for some. Little is written about it. I don't really like to post something of this nature, but I am a nurse and thankfully that helps. My issues are usually in the night and early mornings. Any help would be appreciated.
