Meanwhile, you could also be at risk of Parkinson’s disease if you find that you’re making more trips to the toilet than normal.
In Parkinson’s patients, the brain may struggle to relax the urethral sphincter muscles, which is key for passing urine.
That means that there’s a sense of hesitancy in starting to urinate, and patients may also feel like they haven’t fully emptied their bladder.
Between 30 and 40 percent of Parkinson’s report having urinary symptoms, added the Parkinson’s Foundation.
