I have been peeing too much all the time from 9 years so far I Cannot ever fall sleep unless I feel my bladder is emptied I am not good at falling asleep in any event but my biggest issue appears to be that I feel I need to have emptied my bladder before I can fall asleep. This is my usual night: I will pee before bed. Then I will stay awake for half an hour and cannot fall asleep so go to the toilet and pee again. Then it will be another half an hour, etc. I will usually need to pee at least four times before I can fall asleep - sometimes more. So takes me at least an hour to fall asleep. It's only when my bladder feels totally empty do I drop off - and I can then sleep through. I am not even peeing a lot on these occasions. It's usually a small amount by the fourth occasion.
I have an overactive bladder (I don't know what is really going on medically), but I always have to pee. Always. Sometimes it is a lot, sometimes just a few drops, but always something (unless I just went 5 minutes ago). But a huge part of it is psychological. Not like I just think I need to go, I do, liquid always comes out. But the issue is my anxiety surrounding having to go. When I think I have to go, I feel anxious and incomplete, like I am not living that current moment to the fullest, since I have urine to release. It is not even a matter of holding it. I just want the sense of relief of knowing that I just emptied my bladder and now can think about other things other than the anxiety surrounding needing to go or not. This is usually manageable throughout the day, and I can hold it while in social situations or other activities so that isn't so much a problem. the PROBLEM is when I am trying to sleep. I absolutely just have to have an empty bladder when in bed. Just the tiniest sliver of pressure in my bladder is enough to keep me awake as an anxious wreck. So I always have to go just before bed. But then it gets worse. It usually takes me a while to fall asleep so a lot of the time I just stay in bed looking at my phone, and then eventually, I feel I should go again. Even if I don't feel the urge to pee, psychologically I just feel I should. And every time, a few drops come out, usually very little, but still something, and then I feel ready to fall asleep. This is a problem, because I DREAD getting out of bed to keep using the bathroom. I am sick of it, and drives me mad lying in bed wanting to sleep but knowing I have to get up in a bit to try and urinate. This also is due to my unusual fear of falling asleep. I don't understand it, but the idea of losing consciousness and entering a dream terrifies me, so sleep has always been an anxious experience for me. When I am lying in bed after first urinating, the idea that I will soon fall asleep without having gone to the restroom again causes me great anxiety, so I always feel the need to go again. It is hard to explain but I feel I need to be at absolute peace before I fall asleep, and for me, that means knowing I just emptied my bladder. So this all leaves me a terrible sleeping experience, and feeling groggy every morning.
Does anyone else experience this? Even if I don't drink much during the evening this still happens. Anyone know of anything that can help apart from not drinking anything in the evening?
What exactly do you drink? Many teas, coffee, soda, and anything caffeinated will agitate the bladder even if it's well below full.
>I DREAD getting out of bed to keep using the bathroom
You could pee in bottles to save yourself the trip
You should probably get checked out for diabetes.
That sounds like something you should be complaining to a doctor about. Not us.
We are not doctors. We can't help you with this.
You might have prostate or sugar issues or something. You need to get tested and blood-work done.
try fasting bruh
This. Heart disease also can also be the cause of it.
I used to go to the toilet before going to sleep, sometimes every 2 minutes even though I only had droplets of piss left. Fear of discomfort, anxiety due to uni plus there was one episode of The Simpsons where Homer's father's kidneys exploded from holding too much. I started using a piss jug. It gave me a sense of safety. If something I could use it, also my mother wouldn't asked me to go to the doctor so often. I think I even stopped opening, looking and closing the cupboard in the kitchen 5 and more times per time. Now it's far easier to control the urge.
I have a similar problem, though less extreme. I always piss before going to bed so I'm not uncomfortable, and usually wake up a few hours later to do it again, before going back to bed for the night. So that's about two trips to the bathroom to piss a night, which is obnoxious, especially since I have to stand over the toilet/bin dabbing the urethra with a tissue to get any residual driplets off.
Not a problem during the day, oddly enough. "Complex" animals have some irritating bodily nuisances, piss being only one of them.
are you peeing in little bursts ala truly overactive bladder or is it full bladder pees because you drink a lot and you're just one of those dumb people that think peeing more than once per day is unhealthy
get a piss jug
holy crap I have the same exact problem, like literally, I didn’t think anyone else did. It is horrible and I think it is anxiety related, I used to be able to hold my bladder all day until I went through a period of neetdom, now it’s like pee 3 times before bed, pee every hour that I’m in the car, sometimes I will pee before going out in the car and then 20 minutes later I will have to pee so bad, but it’s not that there is an unbearable amount of pee in there it just feels that way
I am like 99% certain this is due to anxiety, cause when I take benzos I pee once before bed and then I just fall asleep and generally my pee problems go away, also when I am just sitting at my pc distracted I don’t pee excessively either, it only happens when I’m nervous
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overactive_bladder>Overactive bladder (OAB) is a condition where there is a frequent feeling of needing to urinate to a degree that it negatively affects a person's life.>The cause of overactive bladder is unknown.>Risk factors include obesity, caffeine, and constipation.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urinary_urgency>Urinary urgency is a sudden, compelling urge to urinate. MedNet defines it as “an immediate unstoppable urge to urinate, due to a sudden involuntary contraction of the muscular wall of the bladder.”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstitial_cystitis>Interstitial cystitis (IC), also known as bladder pain syndrome (BPS), is a type of chronic pain that affects the bladder. Symptoms include feeling the need to urinate right away, needing to urinate often, and pain with sex. IC/BPS is associated with depression and lower quality of life.>Symptoms may be exacerbated by the consumption of certain foods or beverages, such as caffeine, particularly coffee, regular tea, green tea, soda, diet soda and fruit juice. Cranberry juice, for example, may cause extreme urgency in those experiencing such urgency. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pontine_micturition_center>The Pontine micturition center (PMC, also known as Barrington's nucleus) is a collection of neuronal cell bodies located in the rostral pons in the brainstem involved in the supraspinal regulation of (urination).>During bladder filling, neurons within the PMC are turned off. However, at a critical level of bladder distention the afferent information arising from mechanoreceptors in the detrusor switches the PMC on and enhances its activity. This activation results in relaxation of the male or female external urethral sphincter and contraction of the bladder. While operating as a spino bulbospinal reflex arc, this pattern of activity is also elicited through the conscious desire to urinate.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detrusor_muscle>The detrusor muscle, also detrusor urinae muscle, muscularis propria of the urinary bladder and (less precise) muscularis propria, is smooth muscle found in the wall of the bladder. The detrusor muscle remains relaxed to allow the bladder to store urine, and contracts during urination to release urine.
just auto-suggest it away with a daily affirmation and stuff, it probably only started out as a temporary thing that would've gone away soon but you focused on it and made it real like most of the abnormal system quirks people get, it's an illusion you made real, dispel it and replace it with what you want, that's how I deal with things
i always also have the need to pee before bed, and if i can feel the slightest sensation of having to pee i can't sleep
antacid calcium tablets for acid reflux caused me to urinate too much. i was so frustrated by peeing so often one day that i started crying.
i stopped taking the antacids and i started urinating at a normal rate in a few months.
all medications, ALL medications, are terrible for you. stop taking pills and watch as your life improves more than any fake normalfag shit like meditating or no fap.
prostate cancer lol
I have an old man bladder too lol. Alcohol and coffee makes me pee a ton.
Did op go to the doctor yet?
If not then why the fuck not?
>>259159>old man bladder
I'm curious at what point people forgot that peeing a lot is a normal side effect of taking a diuretic like caffeine or alcohol.
Hope you get to control your bladder better. Practise?
good for you but what the hell does that mean? your body temperature was too low and this caused you to urinate so often? i don't get it, is this a specific condition?
You can say that my body being overly cold caused me to have more urge to pee since its winter and the body does not release much liquids compared to other seasons where it is less cold.
Sorry if my explanation did not make much sense.
I don't have this specific issue related to falling asleep, but I usually have to get up at least once every night to urinate. It interferes with my sleep quality.
I have had an overactive bladder throughout my entire life. I think it's anxiety-related. It's not just a problem at night. During the day I have to constantly be conscious of my bladder. Someone else mentioned driving — driving is a major issue in this regard for me. I have to make sure I urinate immediately before leaving my home. I'm certain it's psychological too. I have always been this way. It affects my quality of life.
and of course I need to pee right after making this post.
I'm going to drink a lot then wake up to pee and wonder why, holy shit maybe I have cancer, this isn't natural man
