Thanks for writing in .
What you are experiencing might be urgency, and urge incontinence
, which are symptoms of an overactive bladder
Caffeine is thought of as a diuretic and can cause increased frequency of urination, and urine volume.
If you have urinary incontinence
, you may experience a greater "urgency" to urinate after consuming a caffeinated beverage.
However, I would like you to visit a urologist
and rule out BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy
), which in your age group is more common.
One of the symptoms of BPH is urgency, and urge incontinence.
Your urologist might prescribe you medications, after finding the cause of overactive bladder.
Hope this information was helpful to you.
Hope you get to drink your cup of coffee or tea soon.
Dr. Divya Kuttikrishnan.
