Urinary and Bladder Disorders Answer A20720
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. What you seem to be having is urinary incontinence. Urge incontinence is involuntary loss of urine occurring for no apparent reason while suddenly feeling the need or urge to urinate. It can be due to involuntary and inappropriate detrusor muscle contractions.Involuntary actions of bladder muscles can occur because of damage to the nerves of the bladder, to the nervous system (spinal cord and brain), or to the muscles themselves.

I suggest you to get it examined from a urologist.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
