for the past 2 years now whenever I cough, sneeze or laugh I tend to wet myself quite heavily. Particularly when I have a cold or the flu. I know it can be quite common in older women & women who have given birth, but it started at the age of 28 & I don't have any children. It's embarrasing & annoying because I have to carry a change of clothes with me everywhere I go as pads are not absorbent enough due to the amount or urine I pass.
I'd appreciate it if you could shed some light on this as my GP's have been no help.
