Water, Water Everywhere

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services 607851

I consume a lot of liquids, mostly water. On occasion, like Joe, it ends up being a hurry, hurry situation BUT that is not the norm. What is normal for me is two trips to the bathroom over the night.

My 5 minutes of blog research in this case comes from Sleep.com

I was happy to read at Sleep.com that I am fairly normal: Older age, especially after 50: Approximately 50% of people in their 60s, and as many as 80% of older adults get up at least twice per night to use the bathroom, according to research. “Nighttime urination increases with each decade of life, and in general, above the age of 50, once-a-night urination is considered a normal finding,” Dmochowski says. “There is clearly an aging phenomenon associated with the symptom.” 

Fortunately for me I always fall back asleep within 2 minutes of my return to the bedroom.

Good Morning Bob "RealMan" Timm 

Once the docs got me back on track with the proper meds I've been sleeping through the night. I no longer sleep like a baby "Up every two hours"...lol

Getting up multiple times a night, or even once, is a hassle for people who cannot fall back asleep easily. Luckily I usually have an easy time zonking back out.

After 50: Approximately 50% of people in their 60s, and as many as 80% of older adults get up at least twice per night to use the bathroom, according to research.

Doug Dawes if I am up more than 2 times a night I may go see the doc as well. As it is I don't mind especially being I have no trouble going right back to sleep.

I am the same as you Kat Palmiotti in that I'm back to sleep almost as fast as my head hits the pillow.

It is indeed Sham Reddy CRS . I need to find a way to get another hour in and you would think that would be easy for someone who is semi-retired but it is not.

You got that right Bill Salvatore - East Valley , it does suck to get old. Aches, pains, and lack of energy.

It is a big issue for my wife as well Roy Kelley . The only time it's trouble for me is if there is less than an hour before the alarm goes off.

For me Will Hamm it's usually midnight and 2:30 AM but it varies an hour here or there.
