Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific. Noted the history of bed wetting as well as get wet during the d ay, using adult nappies. Since you are 30 years old, we have to find the reason. Please give some details: Your gender, please? Any history of accident/trauma locally or to the spine? Since when have you got this problem? Any investigations or treatment? Any other history you would like to share so that I can help you better. The commonest cause is incontinence. Rare causes are fistula formation due to trauma, surgery, some specific diseases. For knowing the exact cause you need the following: Clinical evaluation and actual examination. Investigations to support the clinical diagnosis and to get the final diagnosis and a plan for corrective measures.
