I haven’t seen many symptom related questions. Mine is a simple one. At stage three CKD, with controlled blood pressure and no other new concerns, what does urgency to urinate bring to the mix. It’s not that I’m going frequently, or a quantity issue, it occurs suddenly with little time to spare.

The symptom that you describe is an irritable voiding symptom or urinary urgency.  This is commonly a urological problem. I recommend consultation with a urologist.  I am a nephrologist and do not treat urological problems.
