Dear Sal welcome to HCM,
You have not mentioned your age. Bed Wetting specially in the night time is common in children up to the age of five, though I have seen many cases even in adults. Usually it is thought to be linked with high anxiety states. You should consult a urologist to do investigations including ultrasound scan to exclude any pathology in the urinary system. If there are no organic causes for the bed wetting , Doctor should be able to treat you accordingly. Wish you speedy recovery.

Enuresis or bed wetting is the involuntary passage of urine beyond the age of anticipated control that is usually 5-6 years. 15-20% of children 5 years of age wet their beds. Nearly 5% of 10 year olds will wet, and 1% of adolescents and adults continue to wet. It is twice as common in boys as in girls. Bedwetting also seems to run in families. What are the types of wetting problems? Primary enuresis means that the child has been wet from the beginning, whereas secondary enuresis means that the child had been dry earlier and has now started wetting. The latter condition could be due to urinary infection, diseases like diabetes, structural abnormalities in the urinary passages or stressful situations at school or at home like divorce, demanding parents or the arrival of a sibling. What are the symptoms? Commonly, wetting at night is the only symptom, but some children also have frequent urination during the daytime with occasional wetting. It has been seen that children who are constipated are more likely to have enuresis. What investigations are needed? The doctor first takes a detailed history and examines the child to exclude structural abnormalities that may be the cause of bed-wetting. In case a doubt persists after examination, the doctor will order a urine test to exclude urinary infection. An ultrasound scan may be done to evaluate the urinary system for structural abnormalities. Rarely, special tests may be asked for, like intravenous pyelography (IVP) that is a special X-ray test after an injection into the vein, or cystometry in which the pressures inside the urinary bladder are measured.

okay i really didn t want to have to ask it myself but i couldn t find out online...im 17 and a male and recently for the past few days i have wet the bed i wake up of course while its happening but not before. i have never had this problem before i would always wake up if i had to pee. I am wondering if it is because of the melatonin i have been taking before bed? though i know the dose is a recommended i think its what like one 3mg pill before you go to bed but i have been taking 3-4 because it doesn t work on me till bout there, i know its muscle relaxant and i can really put you into a deep sleep. is it possible that it is not allowing me to be able to wake up on my own or possibly even relaxing my muscles so much that i just am urinating when my bladders full cause my body thinks its what im supposed to be doing? this problem has never occurred and im pretty sure i do not have that Enuresis or whatever. I m quite convinced its the melatonin just preventing me from getting up but i still just want a straight up answer, thank you.

Hi. My 3 year old daughter has been potty trained since the age of 1 1/2. For the past several months she has been urinating on herself and wetting the bed at night. Her urine has a very strong odor. At her 3 year well visit she was tested for a UTI and it came back negative. Should I be concerned?

Hullo Doctor - My mother s TLC count is 26000. She has diverticulitis and one or two perforated but sealed naturally. Her urine and blood cultures are sterile. Amikacin and Doripenem is being administered for the past 8 days yet her TLC count has been increasing. Also Enoxapain is being given as she suffered from a minor stroke. She is on liquid and semi solid diet though she can consume little. However improvement there as she was not being able to drink more than a sip of water 3 days ago - now she has half a bowl of soup and few sips of juice throughout the day. Fever sometimes reaches 100 but not beyond. Passes stool after taking Movicol at night. My question- are we on the right track? Why is the TLC count going up? What more can be done?
