You mean your mum feels like she wants to scratch one part of her body, then it moves to another part of the body, etc, etc? Just so we can get the full picture. Because I know a lot of anxiety sufferers that scratch a lot. Be it that they feel an itch and go town on it. Really scratch at it. Until they bleed in some cases. So it can be a part of anxiety. Just curious as to the extent of your mum's condition. Is it a moving itch just? That she feels she must scratch?

Passing out can be a sign of a serious medical condition. I never heard that someone passes out from anxiety. Your mother needs medical attention.

Hi, i know that but all the doctors tell me its anxiety, depression, and she needs to be on xanax, shes been there and done that my mom was on xanax for a long time try 20 yrs the xanax probaly caused the itching, i just dont know anymore when you run out of options and tried almost everything and it comes back that there isnt anything there you will start trying anything so im trying everything i can think of... my next step is calling the show misdiagnosed or cant find whats wrong. thankyou all for your advice.  you are all so nice for trying thankyou so much. ill keep you posted.and please if you have any ideas please let me know.   alwayswithme.

is she currently on any medication? I know that Opiates cause an intense itching sensation.

Oh, I didn't see in your previous post that she was on Xanax for so long. Is it possible she is going through Opiate withdrawal?
