Hi,

Does anyone else have problems with bed wetting as an adult aspie? Apparently the correct terminology is adult nocturnal enuresis. It tends to happen to me when I am particularly stress or am regressing.

Thanks.

I need to wear a diaper to bed, because I don't have any control of either function when I'm sleeping. I wear pull-ups in the day, due to a soiling problem that came back after many years of cleanliness. I can't help what's been thrown at me, but I deal with it.

I also wear diapers though I'm not sure the incontinence has anything at all to do with autism though I did read somewhere that there are some neurological links.

Thanks for everyone for their reply. I know it is not the most comfortable topic in the world to talk about, but I appreciate your comments and help.

I can't say I have, but I used to slobber like crazy- insert foaming at the mouth- while sleeping back when I was a kid. I would wake up in a puddle each morning.

Is it something you can control by rearranging your drinking and eating times and habits?

I almost wet the bed the other morning, but I managed to wake up and leap out of bed in time to wet my pajamas on the way to the restroom instead. Kind of embarrassing, but at least no one saw me (it happened at 4 AM).

I didn't frequently get the physical end of it but the yelling and the blaming and being forced to wear a diaper in public sure didn't help. When I was hospitalized at 12 it went away for a while but then they started me on a med that brought it back, so the Dr. gave me Tofranil. After I got out it wasn't as often but it still happened at random until I was 17, I was paranoid about staying overnight anywhere for fear of what might happen. The only times I had a dry night now that I recall was when my grandpa used to take us kids to Vegas

I'm an adult aspie and I do wet my bed every night. However my incontinence issue is not directly related to my AS. I suffer quite often of night terrors and insomnia as well.

I do a lot of odd things while sleeping - monologues that last for five hours and leave my mouth extremely dry, for example - but I do not wet the bed. I don't think Asperger's syndrome has anything to do with it.

i've had it all my life, and yes, yelling and beatings were there too. they blamed me for it and i remember even when i was young thinking there crazy, i'm the last one who wants this to happen?
i have noticed it is directly related to my stress level and self confadence level. also if i am sleeping w/ a women it very rarely happens, but when it does, they take it quite well

I don't have that problem but if anyone with it is taking any psych meds or thinking about going on any; talk about it with your doc/psych because some also help with bed wetting. The antidepressant Tofranil (Imipramine) is one

Yes, exactly this ^^^

It happens occasionally when I'm stressed, which makes me a bit paranoid (particularly when I travel). It's a bit different when I regress since I pay less attention to my physical needs, so probably shouldn't call that true nocturnal enuresis, but it happens nevertheless.

Not only do I suffer with bed wetting but I also have daytime bladder and sometimes bowel incontinence as well so I always have to carry a bag with me with briefs wipes and other supplies.
Sometimes if I'm going on a long day trip I have to plan my whole day around finding a bathroom in which to change.
