Hi,
Thanks for asking.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows.
1. Avoid taking fluids atleast 2 hours before going to bed.
2. The next time, you have it, get a urine test in the morning to rule out any chemical induced inflammation of urinary bladder. A cystoscopy maybe necessary.
3. Occasional enuresis should be related to medication or alcohol. More details necessary for further evaluation.
Hope it helps.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
