I have this sensation regularly and have scratched myself silly! I just got back from Walmart with 5 boxes of bandaids! No kidding. Just last night I thought I could feel them in my hair and told my fiance (who is still around....amazing) that I thought I might have head lice. I am actually cracking up as I am writing this because I didn't know about this particular symptom and I had decided I had better stop kissing the dogs goodnight because I had either lice or fleas... I just know that I have about every symptom out there and this is one of the weirder ones. I can't tell you how to alleviate it but sometimes it just helps to know someone is in the thick of it with you...
I also have a dog and thought it was coming from her. But I don't think so. It's very annoying and unless I am very preoccupied with something, I feel it a lot. It's been two weeks now. It is good to know that others have this feeling and I'm not crazy! Thanks for your reply.
Did you get any feedback that helped? I have been visiting the healing grapevine often and getting some feedback there. Yes I agree with you. For some time I wanted to think it was bugs, then I stumbled upon morgellon's and I thought it was inside of me. But I cannot help but noticed that when am not sitting at my desk and I switch chairs, it almost goes away completely. I can't help but notice people who come to my house scratching, and I can't ignore the fact that sometimes I walk by people on the bus, the swap at their arm, and look at their arm as if they are looking for something that bit them. I too notice people around me scratching. At work if people come to my cubicle and I am having a bad itching day, I notice them scratching their heads too. If I clean my area with Windex and it gets better, people come to my area and don't scratch. I do not know what the origin of this is, but I do know there are bugs involved with it. Or a fungus, or something we really can't see, but is there making others itch too.
