Incontinence

Frequent Urination

01/26/2009

Question:

I am in my late 20`s. I am suffering from frequent urination and incontinence (both in the case of urine and bowel movement). I was taking valporic acid for the last 14 years. Now I have stopped it. I don`t know whether the valporic acid was affecting my bladder or not. I want to ask what the normal discharge of urine is per day (quantity) when taking in 1.5 ltr water in a day. I often suffer from constipation but now I am going regularly before sleep. I also feel to urinate at least once during night sleep. Is that something I should worry about?

Answer:

I would suggest that you discuss these issues with your physician. He can obtain a more detailed history and perform a physical examination and determine if the symptoms you describe are normal or warrant further evaluation.
