In brief: Possibly

The mind and gut share many chemical transmitters, often being nervous can cause diarrhea, or gas from swallowed air. Many other conditions can cause gas such as constipation, lactose intolerance, parasitic infections and celiac disease.
You should get checked out by your doctor and see if they need to run any tests.

In brief: Yes possible

Anxiety, fear, and emotional problems can cause temporary loss of flatus control and possible bowel control.
But you have to see your physician to make sure you did any diseases that causes also.
