Last night I urinated a little in my sleep which I found totally awful. I am 29 and have been trying for a family for little over a year. My GP has done a number of fertility tests on me which have come back normal.
This is totally out of character for me and I am embarassed to tell my other half what happened. I actually dreamt of bursting to go to the toilet and then it just happened (in my dream). When I work up I was wet.
i had a lot of family members do this in there late teens. they were told not to drink anything around bedtime.
Many cases of sleep enuresis in adulthood are due to other underlying medical problems and do not represent a problem with the urinary system per se. These conditions may include obstructive sleep apnea (repetitive airway closing in sleep), congestive heart failure, diabetes, nighttime seizures, depression, severe psychological stress, and dementia. Problems or disorders of the urinary tract system that can result in enuresis include urinary tract infections, an overactive bladder muscle or loss of control of the bladder sphincter. Of course, the excessive intake of fluids or substances that promote urination (i.e. diuretic medications, caffeine, and alcohol) can lead nighttime bedwetting.
