Bladder control problems?

Is anyone having a problem with their bladder due to back problems - herniated disk maybe?

Yes my back has begun to affect my bladder to my mortification. I have quite a few herniated discs but the problematic ones are in the thoracic with t7-t8 & t4-t5 being the worse. Also have healing fractures there, schmorls nodes, and osteoarthritis.

Me personally - I haven't... but isn't that a low back complication?? Anyway that was my understanding. From my research, bladder problems can also be caused by thoracic herniations (myelopathy). Will ask doctor soon...
