I'm not sure if this is something I should be concerned about or not.
During 3 of the last 4 nights (at least, could be longer), I woke up and needed to go to the bathroom. As soon as I sat up, I could fee the need to urinate. Well, I tightened my muscles down there, but as soon as I stood up, I had no control. It just started to "rain" as I ran to the bathroom. The urge has hit me during the day too, but I'm usually able to make it to the toilet then.
I do drink a lot of fluids, but also go to the bathroom a lot, and always before bed, and lean forward to make sure I am voiding everything available.
There have also been a few times that I've been lucky to make it to the toilet for a bowel movement. I've attributed that to the yummy bean salad I made the other day and pumpkin seeds that I eat this time every year. But now I'm beginning to wonder.
Do you think this is just normal, middle age female things creeping up on me, and I should go buy some depends?
Or could this be the start of something more serious and I should call my doc about?
