Symptoms

Incontinence

  • By MMKHealth

    Hello, This is a bit embarrassing to post. Has anyone experienced pee incontinence as a symptom of a migraine? I have had this for about 4 years. Whenever I have, or I am getting over, a migraine, I can’t seem to be able to hold my pee. As if my muscles can’t contract. I am able to “hold it” just fine when I don’t have a migraine. Anyone experienced this?
    Thanks!
    MM

    Hi MM,

    Thank you for asking this difficult question. I know before a migraine attack hits, I’m more prone to frequency urination, which can be a common prodrome (first phase of a migraine attack) symptom. However, I’ve not experienced incontinence. I have read that this may occur, and hopefully others will be along shortly to share their experiences with you.

    I wouldn’t hesitate to mention this to the doctor so he/she can make sure everything checks out!

    Please let us know how you make out!
    Nancy
