Hi doctor,

I have been accidentally wetting my bed for the past few weeks. This does not happen every day but at least twice or thrice a week. I had the same issue before (about nine months ago), and my urine results were clear. I had taken a drug for three months, and the issue had vanished, but it is happening again. I do not drink much water but occasionally consume alcohol (not more than 3.38 fluid ounces a day). What should I do? This is causing me a lot of embarrassment and stress.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

Please help me with a few more details: Are you diabetic or have any other medical issues? Has this issue been going on since childhood, or did it stop after a certain age and only come back nine months ago? Do you have any swelling in your lower limbs? Do you control your bladder during the day, and how many times do you pee during the day? Do you face any difficulty passing urine, like straining to pee or feeling that your bladder has not emptied properly? Do you have a history of spinal injury or surgery? How much urine do you involuntarily pass in your sleep? Does it completely wet the bed, or do you generally wake up as you pee and then rush to the toilet? Do you suffer from constipation? Do you use any recreational drugs?

Please revert with the details, and I will do my best to help. However, looking at the situation's complexity, I suggest you set up a video or audio consultation so that I can understand the issue better.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply.

I have hypothyroidism, also. I had the issue in childhood, and it stopped after a certain age (around ten years old). I do not have any swelling in the lower limbs. I have control over my bladder but frequently tend to urinate every two hours or so. I do not face any difficulty passing urine, like straining to pee or feeling that my bladder has not emptied properly. I do not have a history of spinal injury or surgery. Also, I do not involuntarily pass in my sleep. I also do not suffer from constipation. I do not use any recreational drugs.



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

If you wake up just as you start to pee, that is a good sign. Just a couple of other things: Are you drinking a lot of water or consuming alcohol before bed? Does this happen every day at the same time, or is it at a random time each day?
