    This happens to me when I've seen a spider, as they FREAK me out, but it's never lasted days before.

    Ok, After my long, relaxing bath last night it went for about an hour, but through the night I could feel them on my foot and my hand and now they're jumping from my foot to my arm and my forehead and ears.

    I'm actually going mad.

    Hmm you said you don't have this much in the lower half of the body but all I can think of is Restless Leg Syndrome, where you get the creepy crawly sensation and it makes you want to move your legs about. Can be worse after inactivity.

    OH just remebered something. Does it make you feel itchy?? I had something when I was working in a shop. I could not stop jerking my sholders about because it had that creepy crawly feeling. It was like an extreme itch that made me jump. The doc said it was probably hypersensitivity...maybe due to the washing powder I used. Can't remeber if he gave me cream or what now.

    Sounds like pins and needles. I had it a while ago where it didn't go away for a whole day. Give it a day and if it's not gone go see a doc. They've seen/smelt/heard a lot worse stories than the creepy crawlies.

    I could be a poet...

    I just said that my neck and back are incredibly itchy like bugs are crawling around. Also that it is making me jerk about involunterily.

    There's nothing to be embarrased about The bugs crawling about thing will give them a clearer idea of what is happening.

    Try using a differnt liquid/powder to wash your clothes.

    It was so embarrasing when I had it. I worked on a till and people were staring! Had to get the supervisor to let me run home and put some cream on haha

    I could suggest this is brought on by an unearthly fear of an insect.

    Sometimes i get like this in the summer. I'm scared out of my pants when it comes to wasps/bees - I get that kinda feeling if I see one. Even if it's not physically near me, I can still get that feeling from so much as seeing one on TV or in a photo!! They bring on panic attacks and instill fear in me and if i feel so much as a hair move on my arm sometimes in the summer i'll check, or flick what's not there or brush my arm in the hope nothing's there!!

    Is this an option..fear?

    Well, I'm not really scared of bugs :/ Unless it's subconciously? I did have a massive assault against some flies yesterday, they seem to be invading haha.

    I think I've finally lost it I feel completely mad, yet it's so real at the same time. I just don't know what's going on anymore. I feel like I need to go relax so I head out on a bike ride for a while, I'm heading on my way back and I'm almost near my house when I feel this massive sting on my neck and I'm thinking "Oh god, a bloody wasp" I can feel the wasp still stuck in my skin so I pedal for my life to get back home, I jump off the bike and run to find my brother to get the thing out of my neck.

    Turns out there is nothing there, no sting, no mark, no poxy wasp.

    ....I'm so confused. :/
