    Im 18yrs old and i have a history of bed wetting, it continued up until the about year 10 and then it just stopped. Until now. I've just woken up to myself wetting the bed and im getting seriously worried that the bed wetting will start to be on a regular basis. I've tried looking at other threads but know one was in a similar position to me, can anyone give me any advice?

    I would be greatful for any help.

    Have you thought about getting a diabetes test?
    Especially if you are tired and thirsty as well...it's probably been going on too long for it to be diabetes, but I'd rule it out just to be on the safe side. It's one of the symptoms I had when I was diagnosed when I was 8.

    I doubt it could be diabetes because i've been to the docs in between for check ups and it's never been a case of being thirsty. Having said that, i will still follow it up. Thanks for your reply, anymore would be appreciated.

    Do you drink drinks with caffiene before you go to bed? Caffiene is a diuretic(probably spelt wrong), which means that it stimulates water loss. Do you go to the toilet before you go to bed? Or it could be psychological because its happened in the past. Give some more info, or see your GP.

    empty your bladder before sleeping (several times if possible) and dont take water or any other liquid 1 hour before sleeping.....i had this problem to a small extent and this is how i managed to control it.

    No i dont drink any form of caffiene at all, so i doubt its related to that. More likely to be down to the fact that i did not go to the toilet before i went to bed. May be psychological, i'll see what my doc says. Thanks for your help.

    on the embarrassing illnesses programme there was a section about some teenage guys who had this problem - if you go to the doctor and tell them what's happening, they should be able to provide you with a lot of different solutions to try out

    See your Doctor? It is clearly a medical condition; there's no need to be embarrassed.

    The more you worry about it the worse you get. Don't worry, your probably just paranoid.

    Have you got any other conditions that the bed wetting could be linked to?
    You should have a chat with your GP to see if there is a physical cause to it.
    Good luck

    Have you been under any unusual stress? If you have a history of bed wetting, abnormal stress could potentially trigger it again.
