Do You Suffer From Symptoms of Incontinence?

Mixed Incontinence

Mixed incontinence is a combination of urge and stress incontinence. Frequent urges combined with leaks during physical activity, coughing or sneezing are symptoms of mixed incontinence. This condition most commonly affects women.

Because mixed incontinence is a combination of urge and stress incontinence, it shares symptoms of both. Typically, one type is more troublesome than the other.

Symptoms associated with urge incontinence include:

  • Loss of urine associated with a sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate.
  • Urination while sleeping.
  • Urination immediately after drinking small amounts of liquid.

Symptoms associated with stress incontinence include:

  • Urination caused by sneezing, coughing or laughing.
  • Urination caused by exercise or heavy lifting.

The causes of both forms of incontinence may or may not be related, and because of this, it is important to see a physician to obtain a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Try starting a voiding diary to track how much you drink, when you drink, and when you urinate or have urges to urinate.

If you or a loved one is suffering from accidents due to incontinence, it is time to see a physician. Tests can determine the type and severity of your incontinence, and a treatment plan will be created for you.
