No he pees during the day if he is watching tv, on computer, playing at recess at school. He says he doesn't want to miss out on anything. He has always had problems day or night.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
We have had success with rewards for the daytime peeing. The night peeing we stop water hours before bedtime
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
We wake him in the middle of the night to go to the restroom but still no success.

Is this laziness? Could it be nightmares? Behavioral ?

Hi...I understand your concern. I was typing reply about primary nocturnal enuresis (medically this condition is called so) and meanwhile I was getting replied from you as to what you have already done.

This is definitely not nightmares or laziness.

There are two possibilities -

1. He is holding the urine back and when he goes he runs to the wash room and before he does - he is releasing it. This is called voiding dysfunction and I suggest you get an ultrasound done which may revel so bladder wall thickening. Bladder training exercise will definitely help here ans along with Oxybutinin medication.

2. Primary Nocturnal enuresis. My professional opinion is that (as you have already tried everything as a dutiful parent), you need to see a clinical psychologist and he might get better with psychological counseling please.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
