    Just now i really had to urinate but i was busy so held it in. So when i went to pee i didnt have to anymore and i stood in the bathroom for 5 minutes trying... then i remembered this prank where you put someones hand in water and they pissed themselves.

    So what i tried was just holding my hand under running water and just 10 seconds after the urge to urinate returned.

    Coincidence? If not what causes this?

    Yes, these internal urges come and go, just like hunger and thirst. Perhaps you induced the urge just by the high-frequency sounds produced by the running water (no need to put a hand under it). I've personally experienced sudden urges, and found them caused by other sources of high-frequency sounds (jingling keys, crinkling plastic wrappers, squeaking door hinges, etc). Next time, just try jingling your keys and the next time you experience an out-of-the-blue urge, see if you notice if your experienced high-frequency sound just prior to it.
