Urge incontinence is the accidental leaking of urine. This type of incontinence usually occurs when there is a sudden, strong urge to urinate and an inability to get to the toilet in time. And some people may leak urine without warning.
Overactive bladder is a kind of urge incontinence. But not everyone with overactive bladder leaks urine.
Causes of urge incontinence include age-related changes, Parkinson's disease, stroke, kidney or bladder stones, and some cancers. Coffee, tea, colas, chocolate, and acidic fruit juices can irritate the bladder and make urge incontinence worse.
Learned techniques to retrain the bladder are often helpful for urge incontinence. Medicines may also help. But they may have bothersome side effects.
