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.

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?
