In brief: No

Every person handles stress/anxiety differently and your symptoms are not weird.
Others vomit, get abdominal pain or even pass out.

In brief: Unusual

If you only itch when anxious, that's uncommon.
However another condition called cholinergic urticaria (itchy hives) has been associated with anxiety and your itching may just be a partial expression of this condition.
