Urinary Urgency

When the bladder is inflamed, it usually can't hold as much urine. Increased bladder sensitivity generally causes faster elimination of urine. The bladder sends signals to the brain that it needs to be emptied immediately, creating an urgent feeling of needing to visit the bathroom with little warning.

It's common for people to empty their bladder and then experience a strong urge to urinate again minutes later. This can be distressing and cause people to fear being far from a restroom.
