    Very likely the source of that is whoever told it to you, or wherever you read it, because as far as my research reveals there is no such Jewish saying.

  • Let's ask Google

    "In the respiratory system, anxiety leads to hyperventilation, or over breathing, which reduces the carbon dioxide in the blood, with symptoms of "air hunger," deep sighs, and pins-and-needles sensations. In the genitourinary systems, the anxious person can experience the need for frequent urination."

    Never heard of it. If it exists, I'd guess it means he's trying to find a wife and isn't having any luck.
