People who suffer from mixed incontinence suffer from a combination of two common types of incontinence:  stress incontinence which occurs when stress inside the abdomen is increased either by coughing, laughing or straining; while urge incontinence is the feeling of a sudden and urgent need to urinate with an intense fear that you might not make it to the bathroom on time. So many people suffer from a form of incontinence that a pure number is not known. Many times, people simply do not understand that incontinence is not a disease—it’s a symptom that can be related to a number of medical problems such as a nerve disorder, a weak pelvis, infected kidneys, diabetes and psychological problems. There are cures and remedies for those who suffer from mixed incontinence and should be discussed with your physician.
