I know that this can be a very frustrating symptom. Spending time in the middle of the night not sleeping makes fatigue worse, and for me that can aggravate my other MS symptoms. If this problem significantly interferes with sleep, see a doctor.
Some tips which may help:
- Stay cool at night. Getting hot will aggravate all symptoms, including urinary frequency.
- Do NOT try to manage this by cutting back on liquids, as this may make things worse, as well as lead to a urinary tract infection (UTIs).
- Drink cranberry juice to prevent UTIs. I have also found that for some reason it helps these symptoms at night.
