Free Medical Advice sponsored by
Got an ache or pain? Have a question about a prescription or over-the-counter drug? Looking for some FREE medical advice?
Plese treat this question seriously as my life is hell at the moment. Everytime I laugh ...I mean really belly laugh...I wet my pants. (My wife is a comedian so it happens quite often.) Is there some nerve that links laughing with the bladder. Please help me. Incontinent in Moscow
You have a very common symptom and it is called stress incontinence. Urine is lost when there is a sudden increase in abdominal pressure such as coughing, sneezing.... or a good belly laugh. Understandably, this symptom is no laughing matter for people affected. I would suggest seeing your doctor to have a full medical review and rule out some simple causes. There is medical treatment available and exercises to help improve the sphincter/muscle tone in the area. Best wishes.
