Could dry mouth and incontinence be related?

I am incontinent. Woke up this morning airy, dry mouth. On my first trip to the bathroom, my incontinence diaper was bone dry (unusual). Could this be related?

  1. Hi @lisasync,

    Urinary dysfunction can be comorbid with MS. The article at the link is an excellent interview with a urologist that looks at all aspects.

    Many members report experiencing dry mouth, but remember that dry mouth is also a common side effect of many medications.

    We would definitely recommend that you speak with your doctor regarding any new or changing symptoms. Thanks for being here! -Warmly, Donna (MultipleSclerosis.net team)
