Hi all, used to be that I just plain slept badly but in recent months the pattern has been 3 or 4 bad nights followed by a couple of good ones. Increasingly the reason for poor sleep is a frequent need to pee. And now after 6 rubbish nights on the trot I'm fed up.
I do not drink anything for 3 or more hours before bed time but I still need to empty my bladder frequently, sometimes as often as 9 or 10 times! And these cold nights that is very grumpy-making! Sometimes I find that a glass of wine actually helps the situation, but not always.
I know that anyone who responds is likely to tell me to see the doc & indeed I will. But I don't think I'm about to fall off my perch because of this so I want to try a few things first - but what? I've already reduced the amount of tea I drink during the day & the advice I've seen online suggests that avoiding fluids for just 2 hours before bed should be enough & I go much longer than that without a drink.
I did mention it to my GP once on the phone while she was busy emphasisng for the umpteenth time that the hospital must look after all my RA-related issues (I hardly ever see a GP - she is terrified that I might prove expensive - why? Is it because Biologics might be on the cards, thought the hospital paid for that?) & she said it was nothing to do with mtx.
If I'm rambling please forgive me, I am knackered.
