Different people have got different names to bedwetting. However, the most common one that most people use in refulgence to the bedwetting is nocturnal enuresis which means urination during sleep. This condition occurs in the event that the urge to release urine is unable to awaken a person from sleep. In most occasions, this urge is linked to the development of a person from childhood into youth stage. However, since people are born differently and develop also differently, some people may not be able to surpass this stage during childhood due to delay in their development.
It is from the delay in development in some people that bedwetting occurs even in grownups. In fact, several families are faced with the problem of bedwetting even to date. Mostly, those who are faced with this condition are deep sleepers who at times even urinate on their beddings in the belief that they are dreaming. These people only wake up to find out that in deed it was not a dream but a reality. It normally argued that individuals who are upright health-wise do have the skills to awaken before they urinate. However, the condition often occurs even in such people.
When looking at the description of bedwetting, you must note that there are two kinds of bedwetting known as primary bedwetting and secondary bedwetting. Primary bedwetting refers to bedwetting that has been going on without a break from childhood. Secondary bedwetting on the other hand is bedwetting that occurs after a child has experienced dry nights for sometime, maybe a period of about six months.
