What is urge incontinence?Updated a year ago

Urge incontinence—often referred to as overactive bladder—occurs when spontaneous contractions release urine and result in a persistent, strong urge to urinate. Urge incontinence can result from stimulants (caffeine, alcohol, and soda), medications, hormonal shifts, cancer, urinary tract infections, and nerve dysfunction associated with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and general trauma.
