    Several Times a Night

    I wake up several times a night to go to the bathroom.  My husband also has this problem and his doctor diagnosed him with sleep apnea.  See what is happening is he stops breathing in his sleep and to protect him from dying his body will send out the sensation of a...

    I Enjoy A Night

    I enjoy a night when I don't wake up to go to the bathroom as it gives you a decent rest instead of an interupted one.

    Most Of The Time...

    I too am one of those who wakes up to go most nights... but on some nights, unfortunately, I don't wake up in time. I've always had an under-developed bladder and I generally need to go within 2 to 3 hours (give or take) of falling asleep. If I don't wake up and go at that...

    Almost Every Night

    I have been told, not to drink two hours prior to bedtime and I find this hard cause I'm always thirsty.  By drinking, I wake up since I need using the bathroom.

    Oh God. . .

    Story of my life! I wake up more than once every night (sometimes MANY) in pain having to go to the bathroom....(urinate) It sucks. I have gotten used to it. I have Interstitial Cystitis. So, you learn to live with it. But, I am constantly in pain, constantly bloated...

    Very Annoying!

    It doesn't matter whether I drink water before bed or not, I still wake up several times in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Sometimes I don't even want to go that bad, but my mind just wakes me up for some reason. Weird reason. The only time when I may not wake up...

    One Of Life's Unsung Priorities

    This is not a unique experience.  If you'll pardon the tongue stuck in my cheek (I mean my own tongue, folks), I'd say doing this -- getting up to use the washroom -- is preferrable to the vast majority (I know there are exceptions, even here in E.P.) than the alternative...

    Every night, its the same thing.  I wake up needing to use the bathroom.  Always with an erection too.  I look at the clock, and its 4:30.  Every night - 4:30.  There was a time when it was always 3am, but for a while now, 4:30 is the time.  Now all...
