Neurogenic bladder is the name given to a number of urinary conditions in people who lack
bladder control due to a brain, spinal cord or nerve problem. This nerve damage can be the result
of diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease or diabetes. It can also be caused
by infection of the brain or spinal cord, heavy metal poisoning, stroke, spinal cord injury, or
major pelvic surgery. People who are born with problems of the spinal cord, such as spina bifida,
may also have this type of bladder problem. Causes of neurogenic shock is usually a spinal cord
injury. When the nerves in the spinal cord are damaged, they stop sending messagesto the nerves
that control other functions in the body. If nerve signals to the musclesin the blood vessels are
shut down, the vessels stop working properly. Neurogenic bladder affects people with stroke and
Parkinson's disease and many other types of nervous system conditions. Conditions that damage
nerves like advanced diabetes can also cause neurogenic bladder.
