Crawling skin

Postby JemmaB88 » Thu Sep 01, 2011 8:30 pm

Hi guys,

I keep meaning to post this, but forget everytime. I left a sticky note this morning!

Does anyone else get the crawling skin feeling? I seem to have it somewhere pretty much all the time. I am arachnophobic so I always think there is a spider on me!

Does anyone have any tips on reducing it? It is all over my body, not at once though thankfully. I even feel it in my scalp.

Cheers.

I get the crawling skin sensation as well, it's completely random as to where it can happen and when it does it :facepalm: :facepalm: I haven't found any way of controlling/reducing it, I just have to wait for it pass :facepalm: :facepalm:

Sorry not much help, at least you know it's not just affecting you tho :? :?

Hi

I frequently get the crawling skin feeling on my scalp.My G.P has told me that its due to the fact that you have lots of nerve endings on your scalp.The feeling that I get he says is that of the nerves on my scalp being irritated by the pain radiating up from my neck.(my neck and shoulders are agony at the moment).
The only thing I find that helps a little is by popping one of those warm microwavable wheat bags either on my head of the back of my neck.

I hope this is of use to you.

Kind Regards and very gentle hugs x

Know how you can feel I call mine ants I usually get them when I am trying to relax. I thought I was going mad looking for a rash or thinking I have an allergy. I only get my information from guys like you or reading things on the net no good going to my surgery they are hopeless

I get that. it woke me twice in one night it was so bad on my face and I thought there were spiders on my face.
I get it a lot in my feet and my scalp too. it can be scary sometimes.

My Aunt suffered with this for months, one day while in a chinese medicine shop with a friend who was being treated there she spoke about it. She was given a tiny tablet which had something in it that came from ants......she has never felt the 'ant' feeling again. Apparently they told her that you should treat your problem with the problem!!
