Hi I occasionally dream I'm on the toilet and wake up having started to wee in bed. At first it was maybe once 6/7 months but have suffered it twice in last 9 weeks! Anyone else suffered this? I don't drink anything before bed

    Hi

    How embarrising for you. Perhaps you should get it checked out with a Dr.

    Hopefully it will go away again by itself, do hope so.

    Good luck

    This is very common and happened to me when a toddler. My solution is quite bizarre, but worked for me. When i visited the lavatory for a wee I would nip my right ear lobe, which hurts like hell for a few seconds, before weeing, then when  asleep and dreaming I would either recognise the absence of the nip and not wee or the nip would wake me up. Mad? Well, for me, it works.

    I haven't done this since I was a kid...and lots of people do this when they are young. Maybe a quick word with your Doc to reassure you. It may just be a habit that's forming if its happened a few times. Was alcohol involved at all, cos that can impair your sense of reality when asleep.

    I have had this but fortunately woke up in time!  Mine was related to drinking too much fluid after about nine o'clock so cut back on that and it helped.  It only happened rarely but I would dream I was running around trying to find a bathroom and when I'd enter one, NO TOILETS!  Or worse, the toilet woudl be out in the middle of a busy room full of people!  LOL!
