    There are a couple of different possible causes. Overactive bladder is a condition in which you feel a sudden and frequent need to urinate. This is caused by the nerves of the bladder firing signals to the brain that the bladder needs to empty far too often. Often the reason for overactive bladder is unknown. However, sometimes it is caused by a problem with the nerves, such as diabetes or multiple sclerosis.


    Urgency could also be caused by a urinary tract infection, or, in men, a problem with the prostate.


    I would strongly urge you to see a doctor about this condition so that they can make sure there is no serious cause. There are also a variety of medications that may help you.
