Adult bed wetting, started this year, need help/advice what to do.

Hi, I'm a 47 year old married male. I started wetting the bed this
year. It's upsetting that it happens at night and I don't know it is
happening till I wake up in a wet bed. All my life if I had to
urinate at night, I woke and went to the restroom. I don't know why
I don't wake any longer when I have to go. I finally told my wife
because it happened 7 times and she needed to know. After soaking
the bedding and mattress, one week ago, I stayed home to clean them.
I went to the pharmacy and purchased max protection Depends after
researching online, they seem to be the best. I also purchased adult
plastic pants at the pharmacy to go over them to double my
protection. I do not like this happening to me. Sometimes I wake
and think, GREAT, I didn't wet...then I get to the bathroom and find
that the Depends are so good at wicking, I'm wet but can't feel the
wetness and thought I had a dry night, but I am soaked. I have a
water proof pad under me now also. I'm sure my wife doesn't like a
middle age husband who wears diapers every night, waking up seeing
me diapered and hearing the crinkling diaper like a toddler does.
I'm sure she can't look at me the same wearing them but she says she
supports me while I figure out what to do. Help. What is
happening, why can't I feel the night time urge to go, what can I do
besides wear diapers?

I would be in the Doctors Office ASAP!!!
Are you on an meds? (High blood pressure, etc)
Are you diabetic?
Are you overweight?
Do you drink Alcohol a lot? If so STOP!!!
Do you drink a lot of Coffee (Caffeine)? If so STOP!!!!
Are they any pains (lower or middle back, plevic area)?

You could have a slight Bladder or Kidney Infection and not even know it or just dismissing other symptoms as age releated.

Also, anything that is a diuretic can cause this (see link):

You really need to see a Doctor about this.
