Strange new symptom - hair that is not there
I have a strange new thing happening which has been going on for several weeks now. It is not painful or disabling but mildly irritating.

I feel like a hair is tickling a part of my body. It usually happens in a finger or under toes or on the arm. There is no pattern to when it happens but it does happen at some point every day and lasts for several minutes. I try and brush it away but it remains for a few minutes then goes. There is no loose hair there.

There is no reason for me posting this other than a mild rant.

I know that feelling well.  

I've had the hair feeling in my fingers too and also the feeling that a loose thread tickling the back of my ankle.  Very annoying, like you said, but thankfully not painful.

Don't you love parathesias.

Hi Sarahsmom, I don't even know what it is whether it is a parathesia or whether it is anxiety related, its just damned annoying. Could it be anxiety?  I don't feel stressed but I am a stressy person if that makes sense.

Yep parasthesia.  It is too funny because I was so excited yesterday when there actually was a hair on my shirt rubbing my arm.  Usually it just feels like it, but there is not one.  I probably look ridiculous spinning in circles looking for a hair on the back on my shirt lol.

Sorry you are dealing with them too.

ah yes,  the hair touching my cheek or jaw---how I just love that one:-(

I scratch and brush the 'hair' off frequently.   I didn't realize it was parasthesia.  

sorry you are in the 'wandering hair' club
