Does anyone else find themselves thinking of clever blog post titles while using the bathroom?
Yeah I do too. Unfortunately, some of them are too long like:
“There’s a name for that: Stress Incontinence.”
And in the same vein: “There’s a Nap for that … ”
Ok, stress incontinence, since you asked:
Urinary incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine. Stress incontinence happens when physical movement or activity — such as coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting — puts pressure (stress) on your bladder. Stress incontinence is not related to psychological stress.
Stress incontinence differs from urge incontinence, which is the unintentional loss of urine caused by the bladder muscle contracting, usually associated with a sense of urgency. Stress incontinence is much more common in women than men [Is that fair??? – kb].
If you have stress incontinence, you may feel embarrassed, isolate yourself, or limit your work and social life, especially exercise and leisure activities. With treatment, you’ll likely be able to manage stress incontinence and improve your overall well-being. [Um, no kidding… ]
Ok, kids, carrion …
