weird prickly heat and numbness sensation on back

My 13 year old son who is very fit and healthy (confirmed by a recent blood and urine analysis) has been experiencing a weird prickly heat, tingling and numbness that spreads across his upper back and neck often without warning. He feels extremly uncomfortable and has to poor icy cold water over himself and drink lots of cold water to relieve the sensation. This is particularly odd if it happens when he has not exercised and not hot, but mostly the sun, heat or exercising brings it on.
Our doctor says he is perfectly healthy and has nothing wrong with him based on his examinations and tests. This has been getting gradually worse over the last 3 months and is now affecting his schooling, sports and social life.
What is going on????

He's at the age where he will start having some hormone changes. Trust your doctor and if it continues schedule a follow up appointment.
