  • Although some of the adverse outcomes tend to wax and wane as my mood shifts with bipolar disorder, the bed wetting is of extreme urgency. I'm looking for answers more for the bed wetting but would be happy to find reasons for the others as well.

    No, not directly. Some people are prone to reflux or GERD, or it can be a side effect of many medications. Important if diagnosed to remain prone seated or standing 30-45 minutes after eating. If diagnosed with reflux eating and then reclining can cause the stomach acid+food to come back up into the throat or mouth. Then may be slight possiblity of asperation. Also possibility patients swallow/respiratory system may have defects otherwise not seen until patient had sudden decline in health which exasbirated the condition to the point patient aspirated.It is often hard to determine which actually came first as physicians usually trying to address the most critical symptoms or condition first. I am not a doctor but have seen many aspirations in the elderly and disabled who function normally until another medical condition surfaces, after the patient is stabilized testing may reveal a defect since birth never corrected because prior to the recent health concern there was never any reason to have the area checked by a physician.
