I really hate it because I always wake up, in the middle of my sleep, just to go to the toilet and pee. Most of the time, I would just ignore the urge to pee and sleep, but no matter how much i tried to go back to sleep, I really cant! So, theres nothing I can do, but to stand.

Yes this always happens to me. There are some nights where i wake up 3-4 times just to go pee. Alot of times I just ignore it and just sleep and go pee when I wake up. Other nights dont happen that way. Its annoying when you always have 2 wake up and go pee. I just would like a good nites rest without having to get up. So what I do now is I dont drink anything 2 hrs b4 bed and then I don't have to pee until I get up in the morn. This has helped me alot!

Here is my sleep problem: When I have to get up for work early in the morning,(i.e. 6:45am) I wake up at like 4 or 5 and cannot get back to sleep and then I'm very tired all day. I haven't waken up to my alarm in several months. When I know I don't have to get up early, I roll right back over and fall asleep again. I don't have trouble falling asleep. I know it's mostly psychological, but does anyone have any suggestions on how I can conquer this? Please e-mail me back if you do at beachdreamin79@atlanticbb.net. I'd greatly appreciate anyone's help!

I doesn't happen to me. Once i sleep i don't know about anything. It also causes problem to me . I usually get up late even if i sleep early. I also know someone who suffers from slightly different problem. while sleeping any small sound made will wake them up. To your problem i would suggest is, once you woke up and you are not getting sleep try reading any book. I know it is weird but when i had exams i used to get up early in the morning around 3 to 4 to study. Till i started reading i would be awake and after just started reading i would fall asleep

It happens to me too, usually when I drank much liquid during the night. Sometimes I even have to wake up twice. I can't just ignore the urge because I am afraid I might end up dreaming about going to the toilet to pee, my body might actually respond to that dream and I might pee in bed! hehehe I would just rather drag myself to the toilet. And we only have one toilet so I still have to go down the stairs just to pee. Good thing is that I can easily fall back to sleep afterwards..

ohh I do understand your feelings... it always happen to me, especially when we have a cold weather... and in my case, i have to pee almost every hour of the night. i still have to get up early so as to attend to my kids, so peeing in the middle of the night, for me is really tiring, just imagine our room is on the 2nd floor of the house and our bathroom is in the ground floor. but i guess, im still lucky coz even if im very sleepy i still havent had an accident going downstairs... :)

I use to wake up in the middle of the night to go pee. But I've solved that problem. I don't drink any liquid an hour before I go to bed. And I use the bathroom before I go to bed/sleep. That works for me. And I do the same thing to my 3yr old daughter.

Often, I do wake up in the mid of my sleep to pee. I feel uneasy and not able to go back to sleep. It is better to discharge all water content feeling the body lighten, is much easier to get back to sleep. We should drink too much liquid 2 -3 hours before sleep, otherwise the urge to pee will disturb our sleep.

Ha Ha... yes, I do the same thing. It is quite annoying. It especially happens if I drink soda before bed. If I don't get up and go I start dreaming I have to go to the bathroom. So, it's better just to get up and get it over with.

Yeah, I hate when that happens, especially when you finally find that comfortable position and am nice and warm. Sometimes, I try to wait it out too, but the more I think abouy it the more I have really go. So then I will get up and go, and then when I get back into bed, I have to try to get that comfortable position again.

Yes, sometimes I do. It's usually around 4 or 5 in the morning and I wake up. Then I can't get back to sleep until I get up and go. And then I'm wide awake and still can't get back to sleep. I hate that.
