I've recently had two episodes of bed wetting!! I'm on doxy and levaquin. Aside from the obvious horror and embarrassment, I'm worried that this is a sign of something being very wrong. I've been in treatment for Lyme and co-infections for about a year, and this hasn't happened before.

Anyone have a similar experience?

do you have any problems with your spine? could be a sign of very serious problem with your nervous system, like spinal cord injury.

many people with MS have incontinence, but a lot of people with MS really have lyme, so who knows which one causes it.

definitely go to the dr about it

Well, I can tell you, I've DREAMED I was going pee in the bathroom, and thus BEGUN actually going pee, only to discover to my horror that I was still in BED!!!


I think this is my body's way of saying "You are in a VERY VERY deep sleep and you will NOT be disturbed out of it!"

So, yes, this has actually happened to me.

Mortifying, definitely.

Concerning, not really.

I'd have to have it happen a LOT before I got too concerned about it. Like, more than a few times.

Yes, my daughter has had that. I think it has something to do with the neuro issues. This happened when she was having spastic/irritable bladder problems.

It did get better with treatment. For her it took about a year.

This disease isn't for the faint of heart, is it?

This also happened to me once. I also was dreaming I was sitting on the toilet and I wet the bed. It hasn't happened again. Isn't lyme fun!!

Sick since January 1985. Misdiagnosed for 20 years. Tested CDC positive October 2005. Treating since April 2006.

welcome; glad you found us!

i had hip replacement surgery last year 307; from that day, i have 11 months of 24 hr. urine incontinence.

it finally STOPPED last month; thank you God! yes, so I know the embarrassment and the extreme $$$ of adult diapers. uffda.

i had urodynamics done; can't even remember now...but i think it was SPASMS happening to me. it's elsewhere on here after the diagnosis.

female uro/gyn prescribed ENABLEX pills; has worked wonders since i got them!! HOORAY!

buy a plastic to put over your maddress; mine had a cotton type on top/plastic was UNDERSIDE; worked great.

WELCOME, would you like a copy of my newbie package of 112 pages info galore includes TREEPATROL'S LINK of his archive of over 1000 links of good lyme info?

I've been completely REORGANIZING it; NOT DONE YET; but up to page 60 of 112 pages since I have now created a TABLE OF CONTENTS WITHOUT PAGE NUMBERS since it changes DAILY!

also, please go to TREEPATROL'S NEWBIE INFO IN MEDICAL; at top being features; mark it as a favorite! over 1000 links of good lyme info. He/I have some duplicates.

No, but I had two episodes of bowel incontinence - once when I had to do a colon cleanse prior to my colonoscopy, so that one didn't worry me too much - I was half dead by then and had no muscle tone in my colon at all from years of loose stools.

But it happened once afterwards without warning after hanging up the phone after talking with my daughter. I didn't even 'feel' like I had to go to squeeze and try to prevent it. It was even a landline phone, and I now react to even those with my electrosensitivities.

Not surprisingly I had the urge to urinate during a SPECT scan of my brain, as soon as she turned the machine on, and it did not subside until she turned the machine off.

What you're experiencing though is not good though - that's neurological.

Bladder sensitivity and poor muscle tone-- both things that can go along with Lyme, and can cause incontinence, sometimes just periodic. I had a dickens of a time with that, off and on. And during treatment, there came a time when it flared, embarrassingly so. Then it went away, just like that-- it was gone.

It's possible that is what is happening to you and that after this flare, it may also disappear for you too.

If not, ask your doctor about bladder infections. The abx we take for Lyme might not be the right one.
