Hey maryfung

There are actually studies that states truth behind your question. Stress can actually greatly affect our body system. I know for a fact that frequent urination and/or diarrhea is a symptom of anxiety.

If you are worried, have your body checked to have certainty that your body is fine and the constant urination is really caused by the stress. Then start with the anti-stress regimen.
