From what I have heard about Cuada equina, b-room accidents are a major symptom but I am not a doc so I would suggest you going to see yours ASAP. Take care of your self and be careful, if it CE then you need to get checked right away.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

From what I know that's one of the symptoms. And like ekkorose said, it's important to get it evaluated ASAP.

Yes, most definitely that can be a symptom of cauda equina syndrome! You should call your doctor's office about it first thing in the morning. Not to scare you, but it definitely can end up being an emergency situation. Do not hesitate to call your doctor.
