Hello all…I am dealing with something that is EXTREMELY hard and VERY embarrassing at the same time. This is not easy for me post but I am VERY concerned and I could use some support and advice.
Here goes…back in the middle of Sept I started wearing a heart monitor, I had to wear it for 30 days. And around that time, I THOUGHT I started excessively sweating at night. Nearly every morning I would wake up and my sleep pants would be damp. Not soaked or anything…just slightly damp.
Well, fast forward to the present and it is still happening!! But it’s NOT sweat!!! And this past Wed night, I woke up in the middle of the night (around 3 a.m.) because I had to go pee. On the way to the bathroom I noticed my sleep pants were wet again…well they were not just wet…THEY WERE SOAKED this time!!! I cleaned myself up, emptied the rest of my bladder, changed into dry clothes (underwear included) and sat in my bathroom and cried for a few minutes!!
Then I thought about my poor husband!!! Luckily my bed was dry. I must have woke up just in time! I am HORRIFIED!!! I worry about my husband!! I have talked to him and have his full support and he is so understanding!!
So all this time, I have been losing control of my bladder during sleep! It has been leaking all this time!! Nearly EVERY night! I can count on one hand the nights it HASN’T happened since Sept 14th. That is OVER 2 months now!!
What is happening to me??? It never happens during the day. I don’t dribble when I laugh, cough or sneeze yet. And I am getting over bronchitis and I am coughing a lot during the day…and no dribbling then.
I am so embarrassed!! I dread going to bed at night for fear of a full blown accident like I had on Wed night!! I have an appt with my PCP this coming Monday at 1 p.m. I had blood work done recently (a week ago) and my blood work is all normal (no signs of infection) my urine is clear to light yellow, no burning or stinging when urinating. So no infections! I am even cutting off all liquids at 8 p.m. (I go to bed between 9:30 & 10) and that is not helping the leaking during sleeping!!!
WHAT AM I GOING TO DO???
So sorry this is so long…I am beside myself…
ANY advice is GREATLY appreciated!!!
