Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem.

Well, Your symptoms can be indicative of medical condition Urinary incontinence, it is a common and often embarrassing problem.

Women experience Urinary incontinence twice as often as men. This occurs due to problems with muscles and nerves that help to hold or release urine. This can be diagnosed through clinical evaluation and tests.

You need to undergo these tests-

-Postvoid residual (PVR) measurement
-Cystogram
-Urodynamic studies
-Pelvic or abdominal ultrasound
-Also Cystoscopy may be advised to check for any abnormalities in your urinary tract.

Line of treatment is- Oral medications, Bladder training, Kegel exercises, Biofeedback and electrical stimulation
Medications used to treat this condition are-Anti-cholinergics like oxybutynin (Ditropan), tolterodine (Detrol),Topical estrogen, Imipramine.

Also antidepressant medication duloxetine (Cymbalta) is sometimes used to treat stress incontinence.
Exact line of treatment can be selected after clinical evaluation.

I understand, that your symptoms have only started from today, but it should be further investigated by your doctor.

I would recommend that you should be seen by Urologist for clinical evaluation and get this issue managed.

Hope this helped
