    Leaky Bladder problem
    I a ma 65 yr old white female with a leaky bladder. If even think about urinating, I immediately need to hit the restroom. I also have Parkinson's if that might have any bearing on this matter.

    My solution to this problem is to run oe cosest restroom like my pants are on fire.

    Have you spoken with your physician about this yet?

    This happens to us women as we age, especially if we have had children by vaginal delivery. Make an appointment with a urologist, there are medications and/or surgeries that can control this.

    I don't have Parkinson's, and I leak, and have been for years (now 69). I stuff my undies with one good quality paper towel folded a way I like. I don't like minipads.
    I won't take a drug, or have surgery. Most of us go through this. Muscles weaken for all sorts of reasons.

    The pelvic floor weakens as we age. Aside from melds and surgery there are pelvic floor exercises that can help.
