Did this come on suddenly? Do you have fibroid tumors in your uterus? Have you had other urinary problems? Thank you.

It seems to be a problem with the spinal cord. The nerves from the spinal cord innervated to the bladder. Your problem is flaccid bladder which loses detrusor muscle tone (strength) and does not contract for emptying. This type of bladder can be easily overstretched with too much urine, which can damage the bladder wall and increase the risk of infection. Emptying the flaccid bladder can be done with techniques such as Crede, Valsalva, or intermittent catheterization. It is very important that you do not let your bladder get overfull, even if it means waking up at night to catheterize yourself more frequently.
You should see a urologist to have an exam.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
