It’s been a long day, and you can’t wait to crawl under the covers, close your eyes and fall asleep. But before you know it, you’re awake again, and the urge is there. You get up, use the restroom and climb back into bed. You drift off, only to wake up again. It seems it’s an endless cycle of waking and sleeping, and sometimes having trouble falling back to sleep.
If you suffer from overactive bladder (OAB), this can be a frustrating nightly routine for you. Nocturia is the term for getting up more than twice per night to urinate. It can lead to sleepiness during the day, and for heavier sleepers, it can even cause you to wet the bed if the urge doesn’t wake you in time.
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help you still catch some Z’s even with OAB. Use these tips to get some sleep.
