Livinginpain- Not sure what that could be crawling skin is unless it's nerves. paraesthesia-caused by hyperventilation or anxiety or tense muscles. It could be caused by some medications side effects, I would speak with your Dr. about this. My Grandmother had MS and never heard her mention that issue. Anyways just guessing here. Take care. Sara
DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing Neck-reverse Lordosis of c-spine C6-C7 with impingement, numb hand and sore outer elbow. Bursitis to both knees. RN

I seem to remember one of our members with these symptoms, and I will try to do a search later on,  but right now I can't come up with it. Hopefully the person will see this and respond.

I agree with Sara about it possibly being the nerve endings in your scalp, but I wouldn't worry needlessly about something like MS.

When you finally get to your appointment with the PM Clinic in July be sure to mention it to them.  If it turns out that you do have Fibromyalgia, the drugs use to treat that such as Neurontin or Lyrica would ease that feeling as those medications are used to treat nerve pain. 

Years ago I had a surgical procedure done on my scalp that left me with intense itching on my head and they put me on Neurontin until the nerve endings regenerated and the itching stopped.  Stevie

Please donate to help continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

I have to say that being one with nerve damage over 78 %  of the body  and with sencery polly nueropothy (how ever you spell it) yes this happens alot. it comes from nerve damage from the neck  or in my case it does.  With the nerve damage and the spinal issues some days the nerve damage may effect the face, nose, cheeks,  etc. the other day it was on the right side and tip of my nose. Drove me nuts all day long. it comes and goes from day to day or week to week. It may last a day or a week or hours. That is the problem  with nerve damage you never know what part it will hit next. In my case depending on the vertebrae if one is acting up then it effects a different nerve it can go anywhere  making your face twitch or your legs jump.Also some medications can cause your skin to crawl. But as always if this continues then let your PM doctor know about it for further testing..

Poly Sensory Nueropolothy in all four quatrains neck and spine. Chronic lumbar,cervical,theistic, and shoulders.13 Major reconstructive surgery's 106 nerve blocks,fusion plate and screws c5,6&7 pins in left shoulder, reconstructed left arm, shoulder, hand, elbow,and right shoulder.21 herniated disc all bulging to the inside of the spinal canal Neural Canal Narrowing Disc bulging with Broad based Protrusion Degenerative Spinal Disease arthritis entire spine, Nueropolothy in both feet and more. This is just a quick run down .. lol

My question for you would be are you taking any antidepressants?
I have found that if I forget to take them more than two days I go through what I call brain zaps. It is terrible.
I thought of that while reading through your thread.
