Here is My Question:
When I urinate it takes forever because it comes out little by little. It is embarrassing when I go out with friends and I am in the bathroom so long. I try to limit what I drink so I don't have to go but I'm probably dehydrating myself. First why does this happen and second what can I do about it?
You probably have a condition called Detrusor Sphincter Dyssynergia or DSD for short. Check out a blog I wrote a year ago called, “An Idiot’s guide to urination and MS”. There are definitely treatments that may benefit you so make sure you tell your MS specialist about these symptoms, so he or she can help you. The blog describes many of these treatments.
Also, here is a blog written by a person with MS about what you are describing: Let's Talk Blog
