Many possibilities: Possible causes include drinking lot of fluids; esp caffeinated; a bladder infection; diabetes; and anxiety. Causes vary by age and sex. Those details would help. Older men can have enlarged prostate cause this, older women can have weak bladder support from childbirth. In most healthy adults who are not drinking too many fluids, it is anxiety causing bladder to sense fullness when not full.
