Urge incontinence is related to the malfunction of detrusor muscles located in the bladder's walls. The detrusor muscles are responsible for relaxing and contracting the bladder as it fills and empties with fluid. If the detrusor muscles contract too much, you will need to use the bathroom urgently. Urge incontinence is commonly called an overactive bladder. It can result from something as simple as excess intake of caffeine or alcohol or due to inadequate fluid intake; drinking too much or too little causes imbalances in your urological system.
