High liquid intake does not cause overactive bladder syndrome, it only makes you void more frequent. If your bladder is full but you try not to void and you leak the urine , that's easily to understand. You can lower the fluid intake so you do not have to go to the bathroom too frequent, emptying your bladder completely and clean well after the voiding. You do not have OAB syndrome.
