I had a very bad cold about 2 weeks ago but made it through on over the counter medication...i had a very bad cough that made my chest hurt...but it all went away....then about 3 days later the cough came back...nothing helps and I can't even get a good nights sleep or nap without waking myself up coughing... but the worse part is every time i have a coughing spell I pee on myself...after a week of this I am tired of it...what is the problem? As long as I don't cough I am fine but the moment I cough I pee. It is becoming annoying and irritating literally I think the urine is affecting my vagina and making me itch I have to change underwear several times a day ...it is not a lot of urine but enough to make me have to change and take a bath or shower....I hate to go anywhere because I am tired of peeing....

I am not a doctor or nurse but i was where you're at ended up going to the hospital to find out it was bronchitis they usually give me cough medicine and inhaler and about the peeing it sucks but i ended up wearing pads if i went anywhere and it sucked hope you feel better
