Recliner incontinence

I'm a 34 year old male, am overweight, but all of my screens for heart issues and diabetes are clear. The last couple of months, I have been having incontinence when I fall asleep in our recliner. It doesn't happen all the time, but maybe once a week. It doesn't happen in bed, just in the recliner. I am a stay at home parent to triplet one year olds, so I am tired most of the time. Could this be caused by sleep deprivation? I have an appointment with my doctor in a couple of weeks to do a blood test for my thyroid, is this a possibility too?

Extreme fatigue should not be a reason for urinary incontinence. Once a week is way too often for an adult, and there's clearly something at issue here. Stop falling asleep in the recliner. If you're tired, go to your bed. Understanding you have a lot of responsibilities with your triplets, they're in danger if you're falling asleep unintentionally as it is, so see what help you can get for their care, and see a urologist about the wetting issue. Good luck. It's understandable that you are tired, but you need to be well and rested enough to keep your kids safe.
