    A variety of medical issues beyond surgical history can affect incontinence. As you age, for example, your spine can develop spurs that can pinch nerves that control the bladder. A minor stroke can affect the center of the brain that controls the bladder, creating overactivity. Stroke, multiple sclerosis, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease can also affect bladder function.
