Hi everyone I used to wet the bed as a child I don’t think that’s relevant but just incase. I have anxiety and depression and I might have PTSD from childhood Trauma. I have been wetting the bed in the last week about 4 times now and I done the obvious and cut my fluids in the night and made sure I went to toilet before going to bed although I usually go to toilet anyway. I think it’s from anxiety and depression but could be wrong, I try not too read to much because everything tends to lead to cancer according to the Internet. They said that you might have a physical exam and some other tests to check for symptoms like infection or enlarged prostate etc. I really don’t want to go to the DR but think I have to, has anyone had a sudden onset of bed wetting? What happens at the DR, what do they do? Also Is it best to wear some sort of absorbent material thank you I’m only 31 so I am sorry if this is insulting but I read a lot about this with the older generation which usually comes up or kids but seems as I’m neither I don’t k ow what to do thanks.
Don’t be scared of visiting a Doctor, bed wetting is much more common than you think. The NHS estimates that between 3 and 6 million people in the UK have some degree of urinary incontinence. Stress and trauma are common causes of bed wetting, and the bed wetting can often occur years after.
It is important however, to ensure there is no serious underlying cause that needs to be treated. A Doctor will try and find the underlying cause and will provide you with the best treatment option.
I would recommend finding ideal protection. For bed wetting, an all in one pad or a pull up pant are the best options. All in ones are the most absorbent, and pants are designed to feel like underwear. You can also buy bed pads.
If you need any tips on choosing a product, don’t hesitate to ask.
