User avatar Hi tcouchenour,
You seem to have many features of urge incontinence and some features of stress incontinence as well.

It is probable that you could be having a 'Mixed incontinence'.This is perhaps,the most common type of incontinence in women. The pathophysiology of mixed urinary incontinence is as yet unclear & still being investigated.

Mixed urinary incontinence is characterized by involuntary passage of urine associated with urgency as well as exertion, (sneeze,cough,or any other act that increases intra-abdominal pressure).

You need a urological consultation so that tests may be performed to categorize and then treatment may be formulated.
Best wishes!
