Typically, it does not. It may have more to do with the anxiety. Why are you anxious? Anxiety and stress can bring on hot flushes.

contributing may be: my husband died in January of cancer, I have $20,000 in credit card bills and my income is not sufficient to cover, I have a son who is a junior in high school and will be leaving home soon

I would suggest you see someone to deal with the anxiety and stress. That will help you more than anything but it has nothing to do with urination. i hope this helps and God Bless.

but I become very uncomfortable and anxious when I need to urinate

The only other recommendation is to see a gynecologist or urologist to see if anything else is going on.

I have seen my gynecologist, she prescribed Effexor.

If that doesn't help. I would see a psychiatrist. Sorry i do not have any other recommendations for this.
