Any ideas how to help this? I've had the sensation for years and my mother gets it too. It mostly is a sensation as if there really is bugs on the skin. I can literally feel different "weights" to them so I can feel as if it's an ant or fly sometimes. I look, nothing there. Sometimes it IS a piece of hair or a bug. I termed it "ghost flies" because the sensation is identical to when ive actually had flies on me. I started feeling it badly (all over) a few years ago. Once or twice going into our dusty spare room, which I still avoid to this day because even standing in the door way I'm attacked with itchiness all over my body. It's a feeling of bugs over me, but like "pinpricks"? Usually a wash calmed it. No bites on skin. once I was living alone and the bed was made and I was attacked with this feeling all over me. I couldn't control it. It was awful. Tried to sleep on the floor. Couldn't so later returned to bed and the feeling eventually faded and could sleep in the bed for the next few days ok. The feeling has returned the past few days it's all over me. It came from nowhere. It's so itchy. It seems worse at night. I haven't been bitten yet except two days ago I was having it terribly in a certain spot in my mother's room and discovered I was bitten multiple times there. (Bed bugs??). I haven't been bitten since. Seems to be messing with my mind. I've never been bitten by this sensation. I even feel it in my private area and in my anus and almost like a 'dancing" on my scalp. (Bug party lol) I admit I'm very sensitive to touch ive posted about in my last post. What could have caused this sudden sensation? It drives me crazy. I'm convinced it's nerve related!!! I have nerve pain as well.
