I was reading in a book on pregnancy. It said that gas incontinence can result from nerve an/or muscle damage.I was also looking on another website:http://www.aboutincontinence.org/causes.htmlThe indicated the following: "Continence depends on functioning muscles and nerves in and around the rectum and anal canal.""Incontinence can result from a variety of factors, such as functional impairment or structural damage to certain muscles or nerves. Fecal incontinence is rarely due to a single factor."The is also alot of information about pelvic floor muscle disfunction and how it affects continence. Most of the time they are referring to fecal incontinence but do acknowledge gas incontinence along with fecal. I don't see how the two could not be related. If LG is related to nerve or muscle disfunction, maybe that's why it is so unpredictable. There is alot of information on that site. I just haven't had time to go through the whole thing. Maybe someone associated with the site might know where to direct us LGers for help.
