UTI Symptoms and Signs

Usually referred as UTI, the most common urinary tract infection is in the lower tract which spreads to the urethra or the bladder. Untreated, bacteria can multiply and cause infections. Possible symptoms may be indicated by frequent urination, pain or burning during urination, pain in the lower back or abdomen, dark, foul-smelling urine, blood in the urine, or a mild fever. The first line of defense is baking soda which is inexpensive and is common in many homes.

    Could a Urinary Tract Infection and beer cause bed wetting?
    I've drank beer for a few years now, occasionally. I don't drink every night and I don't think I drink excessively when I do drink, however, the past two times I've drank only 6-8 beers, I have wet the bed. This NEVER happened before. I also felt as though I was getting a mild urinary tract infection though. Could the urinary tract infection irritate my bladder enough to make me wet the bed when I drink alcohol? I'm hoping that's the cause because I do like to drink occasionally and these past two times have been very embarrassing and it's causing problems in my relationship. I have a doctor's appointment about it next Wednesday but I'd like to know if anyone thinks an infection could "push me over the edge" so to speak to pee myself when I drink. I don't understand how it would be just the alcohol as I wasn't even really drunk, didn't feel "pukey" or anything like that... Anyone know?
    I do know that UTIs can cause incontinence on their own but what concerns me is if it was the UTI by itself it wouldn't be just at night right? so it must be a combination of the alcohol and the UTI?

    • ANSWER:
      "Only" 6-8 beers is 72 to 96 ounces of liquid (asuming you're talking about 12 oz cans) -- the average adult human bladder can hold a MAXIMUM of about 32 ounces (give or take, depending on the size of your bladder) before losing control. Do the math! Normally, if your bladder filled up close to its maximum volume during the night while you were asleep, your body would respond by waking you up with a strong urge to get to the bathroom before it got to the point where you'd wet yourself. The problem is, this "waking-up" process takes several minutes to arouse you from deep sleep -- and with a UTI, your bladder is irritated so that when you have to go, you have to go "right now" instead of it being able to stretch out comfortably for a little while so your body has time to wake up. So... yes, the combination of a large amount of fluid and a UTI can cause bedwetting, even if you don't have any incontinence during the day. During the day you're able to consciously control the muscles that hold the urine in your bladder (even if it is irritated) so you can prevent yourself from urinating at least for awhile, although with a UTI it might be really uncomfortable or painful to wait very long. At night, the system is more "automatic", so if there's anything to disrupt the normal control system (like an irritated bladder that's very full of liquid) it's more likely to just "let go" without you being able to prevent it.

      Alcohol itself is also a contributor to bedwetting in many people, because it's a diuretic (causes more urine production than normal) and it also depresses your sleep pattern so that it takes you longer to wake up from a deep sleep. Many people, even adults, will wet the bed as a result of drinking a lot of alcohol, even if it's not enough to get them "passed out" drunk, because it causes them to produce more urine than their bladder can handle, and they aren't able to wake up quickly enough to take care of it. Obviously people with smaller bladders or who have a history of bedwetting from childhood are more likely to be affected, but it can happen to anyone. From your description it sounds like you handle liquor pretty well (6-8 beers would be a lot for a lot of people I know!) and you probably have a reasonably strong bladder... but with a UTI and a lot of alcohol in your system, this sort of thing can happen to anyone.

      I hope this helps! I'm taking you at your word that you really are drinking responsibly and not harming yourself (although 6-8 beers does sound like a lot to me...) but without lecturing you on the dangers of binge drinking, I hope this answers your question. :)
