Is there a way to treat bowel problems that arise because of multiple sclerosis?

ANSWER

If you have multiple sclerosis (MS), your bathroom habits may not be what they used to be. You might have bowel movements a lot more, not as much, or it may be harder to go. Talk to your doctor about these troubles. She can suggest ways to make things regular, but there are also simple ways to adjust your habits to make bathroom visits more predictable.
