Is there a word for?

The effect that when you get closer and closer to something, you desperately need it more?
And I don't mean anticipation... think needing the toilet, and you're in the car on the way home, and your bladder gets more and more painful because you know you're so close.
Obviously a holiday getting closer is more like anticipation. But the toilet effect isn't!

I'm thinking a word in English, but I'm British English and we adopt words from all over the place, so what the heck!
