Invisible Bugs crawling on skin? Strange sensation...
I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post...

I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion.

Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of. It's been going on longer, but less noticeable, now since I do not talk sleeping meds any more, it's all that I can notice...

Symptoms are strange sensations on my skin. The sensation is it feels like there are "invisible bugs" crawling on, and/or biting my skin. No actual bites, rashes, bugs, sores, or anything of the nature is ever visible. Occurs more at night, while laying down than any other time. The sensation occurs throughout my entire body, no area is exempt from this sensation, and it seems to be completely random, at times I'll feel it on my arm, then my face, then leg, then arm again, etc, no pattern. The sensation "goes away" once I touch the area (either itch it, brush at it as if there WAS a bug I am brushing off, slap it, or touch it in any way...)

I've heard that various forms of dry skin, or minor allergic reactions to soaps could produce such a problem... I have not changed body soaps, shampoos, or laundry detergent types in quite a while (well before such symptoms) I do not have dry skin, or any type of rash.

Ruled out dry skin

I've read about "Morgellons" (years ago, before it was a mainstream idea) and don't think that is what I have... I have no lesions, sores, boils, wounds, or anything of the sort, and no fibers protruding from anything.

Ruling out Morgellons.

I had read about the possibility of it being bed bugs (from reading sites like this online) so I tore my bedroom apart looking for signs of an infestation, and saw NOTHING. My mattress is brand new, the apartment I live in is also pretty close to brand new. Never the less, not a thing was found, searched mattress, box spring, walls near bed, everything.

Ruled out bed bugs.

The only other thing I've seen it could be is Restless Leg Syndrome. NOT sure about that, but I did hear that that sensation in the legs is a symptom of that, and that in some cases, the skin crawling sensation can occur all over the body, not just the legs, and still be considered RLS.

Undecided about RLS possibility.

The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis.

So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...

I have suffered the same skin crawling and biting sensation for over three years.  I have been to my doctor on three occasions and tried everything that could be tried and nothing worked until now.

I took a shower and then applied Tea Tree oil to my entire body (keep away from eyes and groin).  I applied the tea tree oil two nights in a row then took two nights off and then applied it again for two more nights.  I haven't had the problem for the last two weeks and I've been sleeping great.  The problem may come back again, but I now know how to fix it.

You can buy 100% Tea Tree Oil (Australian) at Walgreens.

I'm about 90% sure what caused the skin crawling and biting sensation but it is only a theory.

It's more then likely mold spores.my mother started out with it a few weeks ago and I got it 3 days ago looked up invisible bugs biting on bing search engine and came across this

linkhttp://invisiblebitingbugscure.blogspot.com/2011/08/cure-for-invisible-biting-bugs-on-skin.html?m=1

it describes my situation right down to my son's,so I decided to try the things suggested in the link.so i go to turn off the a.c and look in the return vent and sure enough a pile of dust a inch and a half thick sat all over the inside,funny thing is the filter sits under the a.c unit and ***** all the air and dust back back into the unit which basically cycles all the air and dust back into the house worse part is the landlord used the cheapest filter he could find.since cleaning and keeping the a.c unit of until the ducts can be cleaned the feeling of being bitten has dropped dramatically I highly suggest all those who suffer from this please read the inclosed link and try some of the things suggested it worked for me and I truly hope it works for you

Also might be the metal used in fillings of teeth.   Saw this on Medical Mysteries, the guy almost went crazy thinking he had scabies or parasites that no doctor could help with.  One specialist finally figured out it was his metal fillings.  He had them removed and the crawling sensation ceased.  Must have had porcelain fillings to replace them.  Worth checking into.  Good luck!

I'm only a 19 year old female and I'm going through something similar. I've had parasites twice as a child, so I'm not sure if that's why I feel the way I feel or not. I stay patting my skin because it always feels like worms are crawling out. This might sound crazy but one time I was almost a teenager, a young adolescent, and I was sick and had to get a shot. I took the bandaid off to look at the whole and it was something crawling out of my skin, and I just rapidly put it back on, hours later I checked again and it was gone. I know it's hard to believe but it's true. It looked like a small crab like or a spider like parasite was crawling out of my skin. I'm always hitting myself thinking that something is on me. When I look at my skin sometimes I prepare myself to see a hole from the worms,but they're never there. I feel like I'm h going crazy sometimes and I just break down in tears. I'm scared to tell doctors because they will probably think something is mmentally wrong with me. It *****.

Seriously? If I was your doctor I would not only be helpful, but I would take it personally that you had been living with such a condition and were too afraid to speak up because of my judgement.

Kill that stuff and live a happy life, you poor soul! Oh my Gosh.

My husband has the same thing.  It's driving both of us nuts!!  The only thing to help him is drinking fermented cabbage.  You blend it with water and let it ferment for 3 days.  It stinks but it the only way we can get any sleep.  Driving us both nuts!!

Hello, I have had the same symptoms, bug that feels like crawling more in the bed area, but have felt it in the chair in same room, couch when I moved my sheets and pillow where I currently sleep, because I know it has infested the bed. I have been having this for the past 5 months. things I notice it I went to vegas about two weeks ago, slept in that bed and no sensation period, no feeling of anything at all. but I come back home to same chair,bed,couch I feel it. I do feel it may come from a/c, feel it could be a moisture issue (springtails), and possible mold. but how can it be a mold issue if I literally feel the crawling in crotch area, along with standard all over your body, trying to go up my nose, ears.on the bottoms of feet. I have used fogging, doesn't work, not bed bugs, not scabies. its a parasite and nobody believes it....and not carbon monoxide poisoning.

I have the symptoms and issues you decribed to a T.  I also think it's some kind of parasite or mites or lice or something, but no one believes me.  They say it's in my head.  I think our skin is sensitive and overreacts more than others, but I do know that I'm not making this up.  Someone mentioned Tea Tree oil and I'm going to try it.  Please let me know if you have found a solution.  I know I'm responding to this post 1 year from when you originally posted.  Thanks,

I easily figured out the answer to this question, its called arachnophobia, a fear of insects read this here

http://www.fearof.net/fear-of-bugs-and-insects-phobia-entomophobia-or-acarophobia/

I am going to guess at least 50% of you had a fear of insects before you even got the itchyness
If you really want to get rid of your crawly sensation i reccomend reading it

Oops the way I said that was way too Biased, but yeah i just read about it a few minutes before i posted because last night I felt itchy all over, mostly because I speedwalked a good 1.5 Kilometers while holding my laptop and ps3 in my backpack, there was alot of mosquitoes, so when I got home i was overstressed, and itchy and I took a shower, I have 7 different mental disorders including anxiety, so I'm pretty sure its caused from stress and fear of insects because whenever i'm ignoring the feeling, it goes away after just resisting the urge to scratch and deep breathing and showers, i imagine it more like tickling than bugs crawling and then it slowly dissapates as I ignore the sensation and take my mind of it

In some cases, Acarophobia can severely consume a person’s life in that; one is so afraid of insects that s/he refuses to leave the house to avoid encountering bugs. In some patients, the condition results in Delusory Parasitosis, a mental illness where the patient feels constant ‘prickling, tingling, creeping, crawling or burrowing sensations akin to insects present on the skin. In severe cases of Entomophobia, people have been known to self-mutilate or scratch intensely, leading to severe skin infections. Some display obsessive compulsive disorder where they may clean constantly to repel bugs.

What kind of sleep meds did you take?  I have the same problem and I know for sure what caused it. The first time it happened I was taking a generic sleep aid for a while.  Active ingredient diphenhydramine. When I stopped taking it the itching started exactly like you say is happening to you.  Random itchy feeling like something is crawling but in the same spot, sometimes in a couple of areas in the body then switching to another. Mostly oN my torso & head and most of the time when I'm not active like on the sofa or bed. When I took the sleep aid it would go away.  When I stopped it would come back. I finally just stopped completely and dealt with. it finally stopped but mo the later. That was years ago. About 6 months ago, I was having trouble sleeping and obviously forgot what I'd gone through this before. I took some sleeping pills, generic, but I found out most have this active ingredient. Took it for about a week. When I stopped, the itching stated again!! I was so mad at myself!  So here I am 6 months later dealing with it again.  Sometimes I can't sleep at all and it ***** cuz I can't take a sleeping pill lol. Hoping it just goes away like it did last time.  Hope this helps.

Thank you UnaChica  - I've been reading this entire post and just read your response - I bet you're right. I have the exact same symptoms for years now as the original poster AND I've been taking generic Benadryl every night for several years.  I think it's also exacerbated by stress and is worse in the months when tiny insects are naturally a problem so you have them on your mind.  My husband is never bothered by a thing and I feel like I'm crawling - so much so that I know it can't be bugs - not all of the time.  I wonder if I dare give up the generic Benadryl?  It really helps me otherwise.    Maybe I'll have to power through the buggy feeling.  Thank you very much.  I'm going to research that more.  I wonder if it's a type of allergic reaction?  I get itchy from acetaminophen (Tylenol) also - I developed an allergy to it from using it too much when I was growing up (migraines).  

I find that showers help but that may just be a side effect of being relaxed.  I also suffer from eczema which doesn't help.

Thank you again - I'm going to try to wean myself off of diphenhydramine and see what happens.  I have a prescription for Ambien but try to only take that when absolutely needed.

Morgellons doesn't always cause the extreme itching or marks that it does for some. I have it and, for me, it is just the fibers that I can pull from my skin. Stomach area, specifically... Of course I haven't been officially diagnosed since it's all a manifestation in my mind, according to doctors lol. It baffles me that a disease that can so easily be seen with ones own eyes isn't real... I am a 28 year old female and noticed these fibers probably around the age of 20. I had never heard of Morgellons nor did I search it out. I heard about it a few years later when I was flipping through the channels and caught a lady talking about the fibers coming out of her body, on an episode of Dr. Phil I believe it was.

RLS and fibromyalgia are BS diagnosis MD's use when they don't have an f-ing clue what's up.  

Had same exact symptoms on/off to varying degrees for years.

I have lost count of the hospital visits i have made. the most annoying thing is that nobody in my house has it. i have stopped talking about it but suffer secretly bc people feel i was imagining things. Now I know that there are other people having the same thing. But my question is,if these were bugs in my case, why is it that nobody in my house including my husband has it. Again what can I do to get this thing to stop. I have actually lived an unhappy life as result for so long. Please help me!!!

Im pretty sure it has to be some kind of fast moving invisible bug or mite or whatever , I know its real cause I get around people and they all start scratching at ther face mainly theyre nose just like me , I dont think its mites cause I read they move really slow so how could it get to theyre face so fast and it cant be mold unless Im so infested it just flys off of me but I usually shower before I leave , but now I isolate myself from everyone including my kids because Im scared Ill give them something , Im a 26 year old male , and no matter how hard I try I have yet to actually see a bug or anything along that nature but Im sure it has to be invisible bugs cause like I said other people feel them when they are around mainly on theyre face , and for some reason they love the nose , I know this is not an answer to anything but Im just sharing , for more confirmation of this modern day plague ,

My sister just experienced this. She found it to be mites, which are not visible to the naked eye. No none else in her family was affected, but she happened to have the light just right and she said it was the size of dot of pepper. She captured this and one other. Her Dr. thought she was insane (who captures bugs you can't see, and he could not see it) but had it tested anyway. Turned out to be a mite carried by birds that the family was tracking in from the porch.

The missing puzzle. i will share but before I do if your symptoms are:
1) itchy skin, crawling stinging sensation on legs, nose, ears.
2) scabs on head
3) you feel that people are itching around you.

There is a cure.....

look at my earlier post re fermented cabbage it makes it 95% better but i've found the missing link.
Bit of explanation before i tell you what it is.
It's a fungal infection (candida) it's in your gut and it spreads and if it gets out of control is perforates you stomach lining and enters your blood stream (leaky gut) creating lots of toxins so it depends on how long you've had this, months, years or even decades it will depend how long you need to recover.
cure is anti fungals and probiotics.
trust me guys continue with the cabbage but add wild oregano100% mixed with organic cold pressed coconut oil or olive oil.
build it up slowly start with 1 drop of oregano with half a teaspoon of coconut oil with hot water and drink 3 times a day. you will experience die off but don't worry this is the fungus releasing toxins. you need to do this for at least a month. bulid up to a max of 4 oregano drops no more 3 x a day.

I've been doing this for 10 days with zero itchy feeling and any other symptoms. I'm not a doctor so please check if you're taking any meds. oregano affects iron intake so you can't take it long term, max 3 month then take a break of at least a month. This has really worked for me so i thought I'd share.

Without saying you also need to cut down on sugar, bad carbs, soda's etc. sugar feed the fungus

Good luck

sorry one more thing,
This is internal thats why nothing works.
it's not in your clothes, not in your house and that's why you are the only one that suffers. i am a male and my wife and kid do not suffer from this so think about it it has to be you. when you try and clean your surrounding and your skin it works for a few days then it comes back. WHY? cos the fungus is inside you and it will come back and filter out of your skin again.
I am killing the fungus at the source and that's what it's working for me.
Don't get me wrong when you first try this you will get ups and downs. die off will differ from one person to another but you need to stick with it. first 10 days are the worst but you will see an improvement within 5 days. you will feel brain frog, tiredness and even a bit itchy but thats the toxins from the fungus dying. drink water and flush it out.

i really think this is what we've been searching for.

Good luck and will still share progress.

Always.

I agree with you!! They are most definately not invisible & i believe are a big mixture of different kinds of mites, some in an immature form & some that move very fast!! I actually managed to see 1 of the wormlike transparent ones as it kinda zapped off me into the sink & i could clearly see it! Ive tried looking 4 pictures of this thing bit am yet to find it! From what ive seen & found in the last few months of having this is they actually group together around fabric & hair & no doubt that is how the fibres get into your skin, recently while have an xtra bad day with these suckers i showered put a barrier cream all over me & then put brand new clothes on, within an hr it felt like i had heaps of things crawling on me but couldnt see anything apart from salty like grains & lil black & brown specks but when i removed my clothing there was around 30 places on my tshirt & pants the cotton had been pulled out & with a strong magnifying glass i could see the fibres moving!! Its probably a simple cure but untill a doctor takes this seriously & stops making us all look & feel crazy we will never get to the bottom of this!
Me well i have too much to live for & i am not stopping till i get answers & have collected heaps of diff samples off my skin out of my eyes, ears, hair etc  & will hold them till all my complaints get a bite & a miracle doctor comes along....only thing i havent managed to catch is the extremely fast moving transparent thing but il catch the sucker some hos

It seems that you are either in the camp that has it and you know it is all too real or you are in the camp that does not have it and it is too far fetched to take seriously. Unfortunately, I am in the former. It is seems both groups are entrenched in their view that either... 1 it is bugs or worms or something that is causing their symptoms  or 2. It is a mental disorder and the person needs antipsychotic drugs. The condition is MS or Ekbom Syndrome or...

3. The other possibility is that both groups are correct. There is an unknown "entity" ( non-living ) that can produce these many strange physical symptoms. These physical symptoms or the early stage ( and somewhat short lived ) of the condition that will spread throughout the body and cause the more apparent neurological damage associated with mainstream ideas of MS etc etc....

The vast array of mental illness are easily classified and any armchair psychologist can categorize them. No on seems to be able to say ... here is what causes it. So in reality both groups have no idea what causes it but the psychologists are sure it is not a disease --- which is a lucrative place to be.  If it were only I seeing these things then I would happily accept that I am the one nutter in the wind. As soon as I went on line and started to see photo's of the things in other people that matched what I was seeing I knew I was buggered. As this has been studied by scientist and found to not be anything unusual, I knew there is a paradox here.

My guess ,for what it is worth, is many of the worlds psychological ( and neurological ) disease are a result of this non-living yet self replicating ( kind of like a prion ) entity. I am sure this is not new  but instead has been around for a very long time. As it spreads, my brain will be less able to see the truth that with all our great leaps forward in understanding, we have blinded ourselves to the idea that somethings are real even though they can not be.

I do have black mold, lots of dust and bad cleaning habits so where do I start with first. Probably the mold! I wonder in fear how bad this mold is to people living with it? My sensations of bugs crawling on me for 3 days now is driving me crazy, but why now after all these years thinking immune to these things? :P Also could finding this weird jelly stuff in my yard the second time once was when the stuff fell in Oaksville, and called star rot. It looks like fake snow, stepped in it this second dumping in my yard foot went down and found it was jelly stuff. Why and how I've tried to health department, and poison control , they want me to pay nearly a hundred bucks to have the substance tested. Doubtful its the cause of this I washed my hands after handling. Is there something I didn't think about?

Thank you I think I found out what is going on with my situation, but could just be being optimistic. I've a hummingbird feeder out, and recently noticed their flapping wings above me following me around. These hummingbirds are dropping live food around me for some reason, and wondering if they are literally dropping mites on my head!!! I'll be watchful.

Guys please try this for just 1 week and tell me how it goes. I promise you you will not be disappointed.

1) Drink half a litre of coconut water a day. get the stuff with no added sugar. this is the best candida killer.
2) a table spoon of coconut oil with warm water 3 x a day.
3) NO SUGAR
4) swap white pasta and rice with brown and decrease portions.

trust me this will work.

Hi TTO,

What happened to your cabbage juice? Why are you not recommending it anymore?
I've just started my fermentation yesterday.
Are you still taking cabbage juice?
Are you still have this issue?
Thanks

Had same exact symptoms on/off to varying degrees for years.  

The answer is GARLIC.  

34/m/athlete here.  Extremely healthy otherwise.  

Tried everything as it was driving me nuts.  

Fresh garlic, peel a couple cloves and chew them up and swallow.  

Problem literally solved in 60 seconds.

I had the same feeling. At random times my arms/shoulders, legs, back and head felt like bugs crawling. My doctor told me it is a pinched nerve in my neck and he put it back in place

GARLIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Peal a couple cloves, then quickly chew them up and swallow.  

Itching, biting, that annoying stinging that I know you know......GONE IN 60 SECONDS.  

Might need a maintenance dose periodically, but trust me on this...the answer is GARLIC.  

I probably have garlic breath...trust me when I say I do not care.  LOL.

Do you live near bushes or trees? Mites drop out of trees & bushes. My doctor said tree mites are bad this year.

Everyone. Don’t skip over this.
I’ve dealt with this for three years but have recently noticed something. And life has become livable/tolerable again. Please read.

Start moving your legs when you feel crawling. See if it stops. I've been starting to think it may be a nerve issue or blood circulation issue. Do you also have any sort of back issues, bad posture or herniated disc? (Yes there are bugs present, but keep reading.)

Please attempt to try, without focusing on the crawling feeling.

I'd lay in bed, and in minutes or moments start feeling the crawling. Then I'd turn onto my back and do the bicycle exercise with my legs. Crawling stops. Or I'd sit on the end of the bed with some space between my calf muscles and the bed so that there's nothing cutting off circulation. Then straighten up my posture. I'm talking about my back, then looking level headed, eyes straight ahead. And wala, crawling is gone.

I think it's a circulation and nerve issue. And I think when your body is in a position that is cutting off circulation or not conducive to your back/nerves, your body's nerves become hypersensitive, and throws things out of whack. Then you begin feeling things that are Always there but your body is usually used to it, so you don't usually feel it. Bugs - visible and naked to the eye - are always around us or even on us. We've heard that before.

But I believe that due to what we've been eating, or even gmo foods and other synthetic stuff, it has slowly been affecting America. Our bodies are changing. And our bodies are becoming more sensitive. Our immune systems seem to also be being affected by this, which is why things like mites or collembola, and fungi begin to flourish. It is a combination of things, that we are all experiencing. Please attempt to do what I said the next time you feel crawling, and see if it makes a difference. At least to get life back to a livable state.

My regimen has turned from being miserable every night soaking wet in tea tree oil, aloe vera gel, and lavender oil, sometimes 70% rubbing alcohol... washing all my clothes EVERY NIGHT... being afraid of being near people...

..to now just moving my legs or changing my posture the moment I feel crawling, with a once a week tea tree and lavender oil (and alcohol sometimes) mixed in with my natural hair cleansing shampoo by Camille Rose. And also make better food choices. This means less dairy and junk. Only fish if any meat. Positive and thorough thinking the moment you feel crawling. Balance.

Try it.
I'll subscribe to this blog in case anyone wants to connect with me about this. I'll have suggestions for you.
Much love.
Also check out comments from Scarlett123456 & davexyz. There’s a combination of what I’ve said, and they’ve said that if done, will get you your life back.

(also rule out the possibility that you have an actual mold issue in your house lol.)

I've been dealing with this for a while now..And I don't have any sores or anything I'm pretty sure..But I will try to keep my bed more clean and such as precaution..A lot of times though its like so light of a touch it feels like bugs..And its so light,its irratating..I'll go to itch or rub and it comes back there or at a different area..And I get them at random too.Its not an everyday thing..I also wake up after I just fell asleep to a light kicking twitch of my leg too..And sometimes I feel like something beside me on my bed..Honestly this makes me a bit nervous and scared so if I deal with this I typically just stay up out of slight paranoia.. I think its a physchological thing,rather than a physical for me..But I could always be wrong.

I have the exact same issue as you and it's literally happening to me right now! I'm also a very anxious and paranoid person so this is the worst thing that could happen to me. When the crawling feeling is just at my hairline I always get paranoid that it's lice :(

The answear is chemtrails,yes goverment is poisoning us with heavy metals such as aluminium and barium every single day.Look up what the planes leave behind,google chemtrails sideeffects,from fatigue heart or respiration problems to morgellons.we are not dellusional,i have the same feeling every single day,crawling on my skin.We are being sprayed with very harmfull chemicals,who knows what they put there,but the fact is these chemtrails affects humans and their skin,search up chemtrails you will be shocked.what ever they are spraying it is very harmfull and we breath it every day,it fallls on us every second, and we have it in our system. So it wouldn't be so bizzare why we have skin conditions,some worse than others,but we all are affected. We will never find out what it is they are really spraying,we can only speculate,but i know one thing,whatever they are spraying is affecting us all phsically and mentally,destroying us from the inside,maybe the crawling isn't a dellusion and maybe chemtrails have something to do with it and maybe it is all because of their grand plan,NWO. Lets spray them and make them feel bad about themselves and make them have low self esteem, make them have so much problems that they wil forget about some stupid secret society because they will have more important health issies. I don't know people it's only my opinion,but searc for yourself and try to understand.

I have had this happening to me in the past but never so bad I actually feel it while still awake. It used to always be when I went to bed. It drove me insane. But it had stopped for a few years and two years ago this march has come back. And it came back hard. I don't have to be sleeping now either. It happens literally as soon as it gets dark outside and continues until daybreak. Once the sun comes out!!!! POOF!!!! They are gone like they never existed. It only happens beginning at the end of feb/beginning of march but lasts until about November when it gets cold outside. I don't feel them when it's colder than about 70 degrees. So I researched and researched and there are too many could be this and that for me. So what did I do???? I went old school on their butts. I got so frustrated one. Ugh I grabbed packing tape. Wrapped it around my hands sticky side up and every single time I felt something I stuck the tape to the part of my body that was itching. It took a while of looking at the tape so many different ways and in different lighting. Finally I stuck some of the pieces of tape to a black poster board and some to a white poster board to capture light colored or translucent things on the black board and  dark colored things on the white board. Finally I saw something. It looked tiny tiny tiny and I swore I saw itry bitty wings too. So I researched everywhere and viewed so many photos of tiny bugs with wings. I actually found the photo that was identical and I mean identical to the thing I held up on my finger for another photo to compare side by side images. Even down to the color. It is a no-seeum. Exactly what they mean too I would not have ever seen this thing had I not had the investigative and research experience from my younger days of dating guys who were just plain stupid trying to cheat and lie lol. No but seriously. I'm gonna see if I can post both pics here. I put it in the tip of my finger when I took the photo so I could capture the highlight aspects and actually see what I was looking at and by doing so, you can gauge how small it is and why we don't see them at all ever. Unless you are like me and want answers now and done with doctors trying to give us all chemicals to kill us off so the doctors, pharmacists, insurance companies and pharmaceutical reps can all come up in life by making us all sick. I'll handle my life my way thank you very much!!!! Lol lol. Let me see if I can post a pic I'll be back

Hi. I am so glad I read about your predicament. I too have been having the same problem for years after stopping sleeping medication years ago amitriptyline and so I've been dealing with this for quite sometime few years in fact I thought I had a spider infestation a bug infestation the same issues I had I dealt with in the same way as you did I found nothing I would wake up screaming in the middle of the night swearing up and down that spiders were biting my legs my arms random places all over my body. I would throw the covers off of me and there would be nothing there and when I rubbed the  areas the sensation would go away. The feelings started getting worse a couple years ago and it turned from the biting and stinging sensation to pain. And even the softest touch would be so painful. Then I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.for probably about 15 years I have been moving my toes up and down up and down up and down in my shoes out of my shoes in bed in the bathtub everywhere I was talking to a doctor a psychiatrist actually and he told me that that's a form of RLS the moving of the feet the biting sensation of my skin crawling all of that he said and it's worse at night it's worse when I'm trying to lay down and relax and sleep it wakes me up so he put me on ropinerole taken  three times a day and that is for restless leg syndrome and it has gotten much better now at first the dosage was perfect and then over time it has gotten to the point where I'm sure it needs to be increased as some medications do he also put me on Doxepin because I had a lot of symptoms that had to do with Parkinson's disease and that has helped me also. so you might want to talk to your doctor about the ropinerole it might be something good you know and discuss with them whatever is going on and if he's not willing to investigate it further or try you on some kind of RLS medicine I would get a second opinion

I have no answer and just read through all 1001 answers. I've been suffering for 3 years. I wish there was an answer. I'm so tired of the crawling bugs and bites that I get every night.  I wish someone would respond and give me what worked for them. I read about the ozone emitter and am seriously considering it. Please help me!

I have been having the same issue for a couple of weeks now. Everyone on here keeps mentioning having the symptoms for years. My patience tolerance is so incredibly low that I'm surprised I'm not locked in the looney bin already
There is no way on God's green earth could I go on for years like this. Upon my investigation on threads like this, I've come across the same suggestions as this one, but tonight I stumbled upon a new one. The possibility of an excessive amount of yeast. I'm going to start working on eliminating it first thing tmrw.

Ok guys, I will write a full list of what I have done in a couple of days. This is a fungal infection (Candida) + leaky gut.
The fungus + parasite is in your blood stream and you need to get rid of it. It's not easy but it can be done.
You need to stop all sugars that includes pasta, rice, bread, soda's and most of all junk food & booze. For the first week you need to live on bone/chicken or veg broth to detox and starve the fungus. I will come back with the full protocol in a couple of days. Stop wasting time and money on anything else. Food is your medicine. Include herbs like Oregano, sage, take olive leaf supplements, drink plenty of filtered water and plain greek yogurt. No cheating. everytime you cheat you feed the problem.

Good luck
