In brief: Irritation, fullness

Urinary urgency occurs whenever there is irritation of the bladder or the urethra (that drains the bladder), or if the bladder is spastic, either because of muscular spasm, full bladder that may not empty completely, or nervous damage.
The most common cause in a woman your age is urinary tract infection, while in older women they may simply have bladder spasms. See your doctor for a urine test
