The limited cutaneous form of systemic sclerosis (SSc) is associated with urinary incontinence (UI): an international multicentre study.

 

Self–reported UI is frequent in SSc and disproportionally affects the limited cutaneous form of the disease and patients positive for Anticentromere Antibodies. PubMed, Rheumatology (Oxford), 08/01/2017. (Also see Interstitial Cystitis and Antibodies)

Interesting Jo as I believe Limited SSc can affect all parts of the unirary tract.  Particularly the urethra and the bladder along with the spincters.

Interestingly, I have had fibrosis in the urethra dealt with surgically recently, but they say this is not connected to SSc, whereas, I believe that it probably is. I just don't know whether to trust these 'experts'.
