    New to group 37 male

    Good evening all. I’m new to this group. I’m a 37 year old male. I was diagnosed back in March of 2017 with OAB. I live a very active lifestyle, overall very healthy, eat healthy and go to the gym. I go through phases of acceptance and than I go through the why me phase. It’s frustrating at times and embarrassing. Depending on how far I think I may be from a bathroom particularly at work...

    Introduction

    Hi I'm 27 and still struggling with incontinence. So does my step brother who lives with me and my mom. Mom told me that bedwetting runs in both of our families so it seems genetic rather than due to medical reason apart of having a very active bladder. My mom was always very supportive and did never complain about us still being in need of diapers. In contrary. I often feel she is glad to have...

    Frustrated Again

    1
    I hadn't had any issues for almost 3 weeks besides occasional frequent urgency and then the last two days I've been dealing with super frequent urgency again and had several accidents and a few smaller leaks. I am frustrated every time I think that my problems are going away, they come back. I hate that I am 20 and go through stretches where I need to use diapers or other protection. It seems...

    Bed wetting

    I'm new to the group for sudden urge incontinence but I wanted to pass on my experience to this group because it might help. I was about to give up and use diapers when I went to a chiropractor for my neck. She treated my entire spine and after the second visit the incontinence was gone. It was a pinched nerve in my lower back. My back wasn't even bothering me. She is a low force chiropractor,...

    How to best manage?

    7
    So I've been struggling figuring out how to best manage my incontinence during the day. I tend to get frequent urges and usually can reach a toilet but if not either I will leak a little or less frequently have huge surges. I've found that when wearing protection I try to hold my bladder longer which results in more frequent accidents. I am not sure whether it is best to go without protection as...

    Hello everyone.  I am new here.  I have had issues with bedwetting my entire life.  I have been wearing adult diapers to manage my bedwetting since the start of high school.  I have occasional bouts of daytime leakage, but it's very minor.

    Frustrated

    I'm getting annoyed with the inconsistency of my issues. Some days I barely need to go to the restroom and when I do I have no problems making it. Some days I have to go every 30 minutes but have good control but still can have a large accident if I don't make it to the toilet within a reasonable amount of time. Some days I leak almost constantly with no controls, and some days I get frequent...
