Question:

i`m a 31 yr old male who recently has noticed that i`ve been wetting the bed lately. I have never done this before even as a child. could this be because of stress? should i be concerned? it has happened about four times in the past two weeks.

Answer:

Bedwetting can be secondary to a variety of diorders one of which can be stress related. Urinary tract infection and problems with bladder-nervous system interaction can be a factor also. I suggest you contact your physician to be properly evaluated.
