An Afternoon Lie Down…

Nocturia (Night Time Urination) symptoms can occur when changing position from being upright to lying flat for the main sleep period. This change in position signals that your body is at rest and after a while, your kidneys will function more productively. Their function includes filtering the body’s blood and producing urine, which may give someone the urge to wake up to go to the bathroom.

If someone starts this process earlier and lies down in the correct position during the day, the excess fluid that may be in someone’s legs has the chance to drain away and flow through the kidneys. Therefore, urine is made earlier in the day or the evening, rather than at night.
