  • Sleep apnea causing nocturia?

    Just heard of the idea that sleep apnea can cause nocturia. Anyone ever deal with this? We wondered why the Interstim helped during the day but not at night, so this is a possible explanation. Nurse told me that struggling to breathe at night can release a diuretic hormone. My dad has sleep apnea, so it's in the family.
    IC & fibromyalgia since ~'77. Osteoarthritis since ~'88. Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (autoimmune blood disease) since '96. IBS for who knows how long. Interstim implant 2/04, revised 6/06, replaced 11/12 & again in 9/17. Antibodies to thyroid since at least '92 (finally diagnosed & treated 1/06). Asthma & vocal cord dysfunction 12/06. Hypoglycemia '07. Perimenopausal at 37, menopause at 45. Pituitary & adrenal failure. Osteopenia. Grade 3 sacral fracture by S3-S4 at age 12, healed 14mm out of place.

    My husband has sleep apnea. He had a deviated septum and had two surgeries to remove some bone and what not and it has cleared things up really well.
