Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence
Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence: Introduction
The severity and types of symptoms of urinary incontinence vary from person to person. Typical symptoms include a sudden, strong urge to urinate (urgency), urinating frequently (frequency), or awakening two or more times throughout the night to urinate. Bedwetting can also occur.
There are many types and causes of urinary incontinence, and not all types and causes are known. However, some rare but specific types of urinary incontinence include cerebral palsy-related urinary incontinence, which causes poor control of the muscles that keep the bladder closed.

A deformity of the lower spine, called sacral agenesis, is another cause of urinary incontinence....more about Urinary Incontinence »
