Bedwetting also called as nocturnal enuresis. It is involuntary urination which occurs while sleeping. Most bedwetting is a developmental delay & not an emotional or physical illness. Up to the age of five years, bedwetting is considered normal occurrence due to the fact that the child may not yet have obtained full bladder control. Only a small percentage of about 5-10% of bedwetting cases have a specific medical cause. Still bedwetting can have a significant mental impact causing a great deal of embarrassment & stress particularly in adults & older children.
Bedwetting is also associated with a family history of the condition. Bedwetting is considered primary when a child has not yet had a prolonged period of being dry. Secondary nocturnal enuresis is when a child or adult begins wetting again after having stayed dry. Bedwetting is most common childhood complaint. In some cases a child at night sees in dream that he is urinating in toilet but actually he is urinating in his dreams on bed which is due to a disturbance in REM sleep. It is necessary to know that wetting the bed poses no threat to a child’s physical health, although it may have an impact on their confidence and self-esteem.
