A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Once urinary tract infection is ruled out the most likely diagnosis for your problems remains, an overactive bladder(OAB). An overactive bladder is a condition that results from sudden, involuntary contraction of the muscle in the wall of the urinary bladder. Overactive bladder causes a sudden and unstoppable need to urinate (urinary urgency), even though the bladder may only contain a small amount of urine. The condition is treatable. Take a second opinion to rule out OAB if your problem is not resolved.

I hope this helps.
