Have you had a urinalysis? Increased sugar, protein, infection can all cause this. Also increase in prostate size can cause this which can be ruled out by exam and bloodwork. Although more common over 50 prostate problems can occur at any age. If this is all normal then bladder training by forcing yourself to fully empty each time and holding it longer during the day. You have to be careful as conversely this can increase risk infection. If this has been occurring for weeks it is less likely infection but can be caused by inflammation in the bladder like a cystitis. See your regular dr for above or a urologist for bladder measurement studies to know for sure and rule out problems that can cause long term damage if left ignored.
