Multiple causes: I suggest a comprehensive physical exam, blood/urine testing, evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. Anxiety would be the diagnosis of exclusion.

Dysautonomia: 25y male w. unilateral arm "dysesthesias" & "overactive bladder". General medical exam needed. Absent specific findings, autonomic dysregulation might explain: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome via shoulder girdle irregular biomechanical function secondary to old injury? Bladder muscle contraction mediated via parasympathetic presacral nerves impinged by SIJ hyper-mobility? JHS? Extreme sport injury?

Provided original answer
TOS oft evolves via chronic head tilt toward chronically injured shoulder; leading to unilateral superior trapezius weakness & ipsilateral clavicle droop; causing pain as clavicle impinges brachial plexus; causing further splinting - a self-begetting injury.
