What could cause enuresis?

Alright...I m a 19 year old guy. This last night i had an episode of enuresis. Apart from the fact it bothered me greatly, I m dealing with a cold I caught.... so you can imagine my current state! :D Anyway besides of that i ve been really pushed with my studies in college, up to the point of not sleeping one entire night for homework s sake and repeated nights with very few hours of sleep. I m pretty much aware of the consequences stress has in my immune system, so... i was wondering... could it be as well the cause of this so very rare episode of enuresis? Cause it doesn t happen since I was like 10 years old!!!! I m pretty much scared that it might be a kidney related issue, cause I googled it and so it is said. Besides my father had renal insufficiency and he was transplanted for it! I thank you for your time reading this and appreciate any help you could provide with this issue.

Hi
Most likely this is from stress and the altered sleep pattern
It doesn't indicate a kidney condition at all
I don't think you need to worry unless it becomes a frequent occurrence
