Is uncontrolled urination a sign of a stroke?

Question by James W: Is uncontrolled urination a sign of a stroke?
I believe that my wife had a stroke in the E.R. She displayed the usual drawing of one side or the other of the face. Nurses said it was likely a seizure since she urinated on herself. Am I right or are they?

Best answer:

Answer by N
Loss of bladder control can be seen with stroke however it can also be seen with a seizure.
A CT scan should confirm whether or not she had a stroke. A neurology consultation should be done as well.

Hope she gets better.
