What Is Enuresis/Bed-wetting?
Enuresis is more commonly known as bed-wetting. For a person with normal bladder control, nerves in the bladder wall send a message to the brain when the bladder is full; the brain then sends a message back to the bladder to keep it from automatically emptying until the person is ready to go to the bathroom.
But people with nocturnal enuresis have a problem that causes them to urinate involuntarily at night. Doctors don't always know the exact cause of nocturnal enuresis but some common causes are hormonal issues, physical problems, emotional and psychological issues, genetics, sleep problems, and caffeine.
