Can sciatica contribute to or cause incontinence?
I have had this problem with incontinence for years. Used to be just a sneezing or coughing thing but it has now escalated to involuntary moments which are usually small but have been bigger. I also have severe sciatica and am unable to walk for long distances or stand on my feet for very long at a time. Could the sciatica be making it worse?
Thanks for your help.
If you have had babies in the past, some of the muscles in your pelvis could be weak and causing urine to leak
Also, as you get older, you have estrogen. This can also cause relaxation of the things holding up your urethra and causing urinary incontinence
One more thing to check for is uterine prolapse as a cause for incontinence
See your Gynecologist or a Urologist
