I'm in my late 40's and still pre-menopausal, and I am losing my bladder control. It's never been great to begin with. I have always been an occasional bedwetter and have never gone more than two or three months without an accident. Now I have suddenly returned to nightly wetting, and I'm having daytime accidents as well. It's urge incontinence, in that by the time I realize I have to go, I have little chance of getting there in time. If I am very busy or distracted, I may not even feel the need to go until I notice I am wet. UTI has been ruled out. Doctor can't find any explanation. I have been diabetic for several years, but other than the problems I already had, my bladder has been reasonable until now.
Can emotional stress bring this on? I have experienced several deaths in my family within one year, and I'm quite stressed out. I do have a depressive illness.
