This sounds to me like you probably have bladder spasms due to a condition called overactive bladder. This can cause you to feel like you need to urinate or you can have persistent leakage of urine that is associated with the urge to urinate. This is a very common problem in women your age and it is very treatable with medications that are designed to stop bladder spasms. One such medication is called oxybutynin. Another one is called Sanctura. I would recommend that you see your doctor for an examination and to consider this diagnosis as the cause of your symptoms. Hope this helps.
