Q: has anyone ever wet the bed at night and dream you need to use the bathroom but something prevent you in the dream then the next thing you know you are waking up wet?

i started doing this about two years ago off and on. but lately it is occurring with much more frequency. i went to the doctor and she done a urine test and said i have a kidney infection and it could be possible that the infection has come and gone in the last two years. i want to think that's all it is but i worry there's more to it because i have been taking medication for about five days and i wet the bed again last night while i was dreaming that i needed to go and couldn't.

Yes, I was dreaming ,it turns out, that I was lying in a tub and the water was getting cold.

I dreamed I was running the hot water to warm the tub. It felt good.

Next thing I am waking up in a wet bed.

Hi, I suffered with incontinence until I was 12 years old.  I remember that exact same thing.  It became such an issue I had a routine that I would follow everytime I went to the bathroom.  I would pinch my cheeks and say I am not sleeping I am awake, I am not dreaming... Eventually I started to wake up out of my dreams just before I would begin to wet the bed.  I am now 40 years old and over the past 10 years I have woke myself up with the same method.  It worked for me.  I think mine was due to my heavy sleep habits.  After I had kids I would wake up everytime I had to go to the bathroom...

I hope that helps...
