In brief: Diet?

I agree with dr. Klauber. Additionally for women, aging, diet and hormones have an effect of urgency on the bladder.
The more acidic foods such as carbonated drinks and citrus fruits, tomatoes, and, caffeine, can cause urgency symptoms with occasional urge incontinence. Low vaginal estrogen makes women more sensitive to the urgency symptoms. Hope this helps.

In brief: Very common.

Many women have these symptoms.
Most commonly these symptoms are caused by bladder contractions or spasms. Your diet can contribute to symptoms. Caffeine, citrus and tomato based foods to name a few can irritate the bladder. If limiting these foods does not help then see your doctor to discuss other treatment options. Medications are usually the first choice of treatment.

In brief: ? OAB, IC, DM, MS

You may have an overactive bladder, or interstitial cystitis.
Diabetes can cause these symptoms, but, knowing you don't have a UTI means you had a urinalysis which was negative and would have demonstrated sugar. Some neurologic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, or spinal cord or brain conditions can give these symptoms, but again there would likely be other neurologic symptoms. Good luck.
