URGE INCONTINENCE

a form of urinary incontinence consisting of an abrupt, strong urge to urinate and then an indeliberate contracting of the bladder regardless of the amount of urine inside the bladder. Since the bladder actually contracts, urine is dispersed quickly, making it hard for individuals with urge incontinence to foretell or manage the such an occurrence.

URGE INCONTINENCE: "The doctor said mom has a condition called urge incontinence, which is not uncommon for her advanced age."
