Crawling under the skin feeling…. page 4 – anxiety and stress forum – ehealthforum gas utility cost

Hi. I am having similar symptoms. I thought it was possibly a blood clot. It seemed like a slight itch in various parts of my body, mostly in the lymph system. Recently I have had increasing symptoms in my head. After working on the computer for 15 hours I would walk up the stairs and it would feel like my forehead walked into a spiderweb but it was more numbing. I can feel the veins near my eyes and several places in my head. They always appear in the exact same places. I have also experienced my left pinky finger becoming totally numb while lying down. I am also really sensitive to cold damp weather. I am from aspen and the cold dry weather does effect me, just the humid cold. I thought a while back a may have had worms living in Mexico because of itching and crawling sensations in my anus, mostly at night when about asleep. I don’t know what is going on, but I don’t have insurance yet and I’m trying to wait until I get it, as if it a serious problem I don’t have money for treatment.

I have also had pain in my heart, and also on my right upper lung side, as well as pain in my left arm. I work on the computer for 12-15 hour days, which I thought may be related to the typing but these are either dull pains or itching/tingling sensations that usually move or go away when applying pressure to them and they come and go quickly. One night, I was having an anxiety attach and almost went to the ER. I could feel stronger sensations in my veins, including in my finger tips and toes that was much more intense and did not go away by putting pressure or scratching.

I’m pretty sure it’s something physical, but I do not know much about the neurological system. I would imagine that the symptoms would come and go more if it was anxiety related, but they are starting to seem more and more consistent, and are there every day.

im not sure what to suggest hun, my nerve trouble followed an accident i had at work, actually took 8 years to diagnose by a docter and actually treat as my doctor kept dismissing it saying there was nothing wrong, i had to research it on the internet and say look i think this is the problem can you check, and when they finally did they saw i was right, i had a slipped disk basically, a disk in the middle of my lower back was bulging out compressing the sciatic nerve, now the sciatic nerve ( im sure u already know this so im sorry if it sounds like im trying to teach you lol ) is a huge nerve running right through from underneighth the pelivs next to the spine, right through the buttocks an down into the foot, they say with sciatica you only get it in one side mainly but i had it most times it was bad in both legs and my genitalia and buttocks would go numb, i would get weakness etc and eventually once theyd discovered that it was infact sciatica caused by the nerve compression from the bulging disk, i was sent to a pysiotherapist, now, a few months ago i actually experienced a shock like pain, its very difficult to describe but if i could say it was like when you bump your funny bone, the kind of tingly nasty pain you experience from that, i got this from the same area i had this bulging disk except it went straight from there upwards rather than down through my legs, it went all the way up through into my face and my face began to tingle, now i only had this happen a few times but a doctor did explain to me that it could be a pinched nerve! your problem does very much sound like some kind of nerve trouble x
