Ive had sciatica on and off for years but over the last year it's getting worse. I've just been referred for an MRI but yesterday evening I experienced a little loss of bladder control. I'm 38, no kids, wasn't particularly needing the loo but suddenly it happened. Has this happened to any of you? I know loss of bladder control can be a sign of something serious with back pain but I'm waiting to see if it happens again, I don't want to be dramatic! What I don't know from reading various internet sites is when it happens do people get it just occasionally, or once it starts is that it, complete loss of control?
If any of you have experienced this please could you let me know about your experience, I don't want to panic when maybe it's nothing!
