Get a Good Night Sleep With OAB
If you have overactive bladder (OAB), you may feel tired frequently because you do not get a good night’s sleep. There are several actions you can take that will relieve symptoms, help you to get a better night’s sleep, and wake up refreshed. Many are simple strategies you can implement at home, but others require consultation with qualified health experts.
1. Identify the Problem
Think about possible reasons you might be in the bathroom all night or staying awake — it may or may not be related to OAB.
For example, if you overextend yourself and are stressed, you may have to urinate frequently due to anxiety coupled with OAB. In order to get a good night’s sleep, you must address the stress and the OAB.
The clearer you can be about what is keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep, the better outcomes you will have when you implement a treatment plan.
Alternative therapies may help to reduce irritability of bladder tissues, urgency and lessen episodes of incontinence and reducing stress related to OAB.
