Irritated Nerves

Sep 17, 2015 1:16 AM

We all know our nerves are extremely sensitive and crazy.I was wondering if anyone else gets really really itchy at night but I mean when your in bed, in the covers. I get so itchy it's ridiculous I itch literally everywhere including stupid places like the bottoms of my feet or my little toe it's infuriating. It keeps me up all night and as soon as I get comfy I itch somewhere else and it drives me nuts. Please tell me that someone else has this problem because it's really concerning me. Some nights I'm ok but other nights like last night, the itching wouldn't stop. I hope everyone else had a better night sleep than me.

Lots of Love, Becky 💋

BeckyDem, I get these itching spells also. They used to come at night but now I get them throughout the day. I get them below my bottom lip, in the elbow, wrist, & behind the knee joints. It drives me nuts! I've used antiitch ointments and benadryl, but honestly my anxiety meds helps best. I've mentioned them to my doctors and they look at me like I'm crazy! I'm trying to figure out if it's an allergic reaction to a med or foods. 🙏🌼

Even my tear duct area of my eyes itch!

I get this itching spells as well. What's really bizarre is that the itching is inside!! I can scratch, have someone else scratch and as soon as they stop, the itching comes back. A lot of the time, it's around my shoulder blades and other areas on my back. It happens on my feet and, like Flappsy, around the areas of my tear ducts. It's very frustrating. Usually I end up going to a doorway and scratching on the wall like a bear in a tree... LOL!!

Haha u all make me laugh. This is so weird I too get it in my tear ducts this is bizarre! I get it below my bottom lip, bottom of my feet, around ankle bones, top of my feet, my heels, in between my toes, all over my legs, my stomach and chest area, my back.my arms, my forehead, my neck and groin,my hands, fingers and scalp. So annoying! Do you guys do anything that helps it a bit? I also find its a deep inside itch and it feels like a prickly itch, not a normal itch feeling. And as soon as u itch it, seconds later it comes back!! 😠😲🙅🙆🌰🌰🌰💫

Me too. Sometimes it just drives me nuts.

I think it's a nerve related issue! It's the only thing that makes sense.. 🙏🌼

Beckydem, that's how mine is!!! It's feeling like the itching comes from deep inside and while I'm
Scratching it feels better but as soon as I stop, it immediately returns. That's usually when you see me in a doorway scratching like a bear against a tree. It's very frustrating. I think Flappsy is right, it had something to do with our conditions.

I have fibromyalgia. Also in June the area where my collar bone is on the right hand side just decided randomly to go completely num. To this day I have no feeling there at all which is worrying. It's not tingly just completely dead numb. The doctor said she's never seen anything like it and she doesn't think it's to do with the fibromyalgia (neither do I?). I asked her what she things is causing this or what is it. She said she reckons it's nerve damage due to something wrong in my brain or spine. So she put me on the list to see neurologists at the hospital where I finally have an appointment on Wednesday. She said they will do brain and back scans. It's so weird. Also when in bed the the bottom of my back goes numb and sometimes my whole side and my groin ara goes numb too. Anyone else experienced any of this? 💋
