In the last few months the stress at work went to an all-time high, and I began to experience periodic leakage (light) but it was happening and I notice it at stressful times. Is there a correlation?

You are correct! There is a correlation between stress and light bladder leakage. I interviewed an expert who said that stress can cause a pH imbalance that makes the fluid in your body shift in alkalinity. When it shifts, it can actually aggravate your bladder.
