Stool urgency: If this is an acute problem, it is most likely due to an infectious cause, most of which resolve spontaneously it a few days. If it is a long-term problem, though, you may have irritable bowel syndrome. If so, try increasing your fiber intake, along with extra fluids. If this doesn't work, or if it is an acute problem which does not go away in a few days, see your physician. Good luck.
