I've suffered with urinary incontinence, sudden onset and also pain for at least 7 years, progressively losing nearly all control of my bladder. I'm otherwise super healthy at age 65. By pure serendipity, I discovered that eating fresh ginger has eliminated the problem, completely. Most amazingly, symptoms resolved practically overnight. Several times a day I simply take a bite of ginger root. I don't peel it, just clean well and store. Caution: it's hot. But strong ginger tea works, too. Even sweetened.

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.
