I'm new to this site and this is my first posting. Thanks in advance for asnyone who can be bothered to help me.
My problem is that I have to get up about four times a night to urinate and, when I do so it's just a dribble. If I don't urinate there's no danger of wetting the bed but the urge to urinate stops me sleeping.
Daytime urination is no problem. The stream is strong, there is no pain and I don't think i urinate any more frequently than others.
I have visited several doctors who have done different tests and found nothing abnormal. So far there's been no convincing diagnosis. But tiredness from my interrupted sleep is adversely affecting my life and work.
Anyone had experience of anything like this? I'd really like to know.
