my personal theory, based on my own thoughts are maybe it's a sensitive spot in your colon that once aggravated puts pressure on all those nerves and triggers something in your body to release it. Lately my urgency has gone down and I have an hour commute each way to work and not a lot of bathroom stops, luckily (knock on wood) I have been able to hold it and make it to work and back w/out having to stop (though I pretty much empty myself out before I get into the car it seems) and even when I have to go I have tried to hold it for a moment to see if it can pass so that way I don't go 4 times in a row, maybe just two and it seems to be working but probably only b/c I am getting a little better day by day.
