What causes nocturnal enuresis?

I am 15 and for the last 4 days I have wet the bed. I do not have a UTI or a history of bedwetting. I am going to see a doctor this thursday but really cant stand waking up soaked till then. Should i buy something like a diaper and do they make them for people my age? What kinds do they have?

* Usual cause of bed wetting at 15 years of age, in a person who was previously totally having control for the same period indicate possible disturbances with the REM sleep pattern.
* Underlying anxiety and stress issues play a very vital role in this issue and the same must be addressed to the treating urologist immediately as this may require counseling with a psychiatrist as well in many cases.
* Adult diaper comes in various size as per the waist circumference ranging from 24 inches to 40 inches as well.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
