Need to urinate while travellling on planes/buses

Patient : In the past month or so I've felt the need to desperately urinate while in high speed vehicles. An airplane landing, and a bus accelerating/suddenly stopping seem to be the worse. I've felt as though I'm seconds away from peeing in my pants, it's pretty bad. When I get off the vehicle, I feel fine. If I try to go to the restroom, nothing comes out. It doesn't make any sense to be psychological, I've done this thousands of times before and it didn't bother me.
Symptoms:  Need to urinate, not urinating
