Passed stools while sleeping, diarrhea. Whats wrong with the system?

I am getting abit worried as lastnight for the second time in about 2 weeks I woke to find that I had passed a small stool while sleeping. I had a normal delivery of my baby 15 weeks ago. Ur don t know if this is relevant? I have also been suffering from occasional sudden diarrhoea. I can t seem to link it to anything but I m actually becoming nervous about going anywhere alone with my kids I case it happens while I m out. Please help!

Thanks for your query Emma.
You probably suffer from incontinence of stool which may be because of rectal injury you may have had during your delivery. Try pelvic exercises like kugels exercises. Visit a OBGY or Surgeopn for further help. Neurological causes like a conus medullaris syndrome may also have to be ruled out which may requires a neurological examination and MRI of LS Spine.
