Sudden Incontinence in 19 Year Old
I am 19 years old and within the past week i have suddenly started wetting on myself. the first time it happened was when i was asleep and it woke me up then the next night it happened again but it didn`t wake me up. the following day i was cooking dinner and it suddenly happened again only i was awake . i didnt even feel like i had to go. it has now happened at least three other times during the day .could something seriously be wrong with me or could it just be stress? im not sure what to do .
I am not sure what is causing the sudden leakage. I would suggest that you be seen by your doctor for a more complete history and physical exam, and have your urine checked to rule out a bladder infection.
