“There’s a one in three chance that any woman reading this book has a secret: incontinence- the problem of being unable to always control her waterworks”, Pauline chiarelli
This knowledgable Australian physiotherapist writes about such issues as incontinence, frequency, urgency, prolapses and bowel issues, all concerns of people with fibromyalgia. I highly recommend searching for her books and articles regarding pelvic floor disorders (PFD). I have only recently become aware of these issues and frankly I have become absorbed with the research and ‘aha’ moments I have experienced. Many have written to me privately and asked about PFD and I have to confess I did not pay much attention to the topic until now. Another very informative book I laughed so hard I peed my pants! written by Kelli Berzuk, also a physiotherapist (Canadian) is replete with information and techniques for working with PFD . It is extremely useful and well written, outlining the many factors which lead to these conditions, among them childbirth, menopause and aging, covering the broad spectrum of women’s hormonal cycles.
