Urination during Sleep

Posted by ND on January 04, 2001 at 18:09:05:

I have this peculiar problem which happens once in a while. Say 2-3 times in 6-7 months. During my sleep I sometimes urinate and make the bed wet. Most of the time I am able to wake up just in time and run to the the bathroom. But sometimes I am so deep in sleep that I don't realize that in time. I noticed that whenever this happens I am in some dream where in the dream I end up going to a bathroom and urinate. Looks like my brain gets confused and forget to wake me up when I need to urinate during the dream. Can somebody help me what I should do about it ? This is very embarrassing whenever it happens.
