Urge Incontinence

Urge incontinence or overactive bladder, is a condition involving bladder storage and urine control. There is a sudden and frequent uncontrollable need to urinate. Urine leakage may accompany these urges.

Urge incontinence may cause isolation due to social embarrassment or impairment from working due to the frequency of bathroom visits. It may also cause chronic fatigue from frequent nighttime bathroom visits. Overactive bladder is not a normal condition of aging and may signal a more serious underlying medical problem that should be further investigated.
