Glad to see your web site on incontinence. My story is, I am a heavy coffee drinker, say 16 cups a day double double. Habit made while travelling. Now it is 9 years since incontinence developed. Two years ago, family doctor tested for prostate, liver, kidney, urinary tract, hernia, etc., and all negative except right side hernia. I have urination 4 times at night and day time 8 to 9 times; urge incontinence. Sometimes I pass urine in car, while walking on road, etc. I have no idea what to do, many remedies tried but of no help so far. I am an active man, walking a lot, etc., and a pure vegetarian since birth.

I have nighttime urinary incontinence, up to five times a night, with pain in groin and vulva on the right side.
