Wow this is very interesting because I have always suffered from incontinence and also have
ADD. Maybe there is a link.
: : I have a 5 y.o. boy who appears to be having increased difficulty controling his bladder/bowel in school. I have also noticed him recently having much more trouble with his attention. Does anybody know if ADD/ADHD could possibly contribute to an already potty-trained child's regressed bladder/bowel management???
: I don't know if that could be a factor but I do know that bowel and bladder control are some of the things they ask you about when you get your child tested for ADD. Why not see your doctor and have him evaluate the situation especially since it is summer now and your child should be out of school.
