After a seizure I have very bad nocturia involving me getting up yo urinate up to 8 times a night - needless to say this is having a very bad effect on my health. A suggestion that it is related to my Parkinsons has been made by my doctor and parkinsons nurse - even if it is theres still no answer as to how to get rid of it. HELP!

Landon…I might be off the mark here, but surely nocturia requires a well hydrated system to be a problem…it may sound obvious, but eating digestives/ rice/toast etc just before bedtime would be my first line of attack…giving myself something that is going to require digestive fluids to be active…depriving myself of free fluids……after all, waking up with a bit of a thirst is not a concern😀
THANKS - I’LL give it a try tonight
