User :   I'm a 35 year old male in excellent physical condition but everynow and again I wet the bed. Twice in the last couple of months.

I did have bed wetting problems as a kid but just seemed to grow out of them when I was about 18-20years after use of nasal spray and some other medicine.

It might sound strange to explain but it happens when I'm dreaming and in my dream I go to the toilet and that's when I wet the bed, it's almost like my brain tells my bladder I'm at the toilet and I can pee when infact I'm alseep and dreaming I'm at the toilet.

I have consulted with physician, homeopathy specialist but no remarkable result, I am tying to wake up every night with the use of alarm clock midnight, early morning, I could woke up with the clock alarm, even after passing urine at the early morning at toilet, I went into deep sleep and same dream came as if I am in toilet and bed gets wet again.
Now I am getting very much frustrated and helpless as what to do, what type of specialist should I consult
Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

Kind Regards
