After reading some of the responses, I have seen some common links. I know the exact time this "itch" began for me. In July 1991, I had been laying out (tanning) in the lake for several days. At first I thought a bug or fungus had got under my skin and was eating me alive. Also around that time (1991) I began seeing a chiropractor. I don't see a connection in med's, for I have been on a multitude of different kinds. I do have food allergies to chocolate and tomatoes. I have asthma, rhumatoid arthitis, and spondylosis in my neck. I have 4 sister's and this only affects 2 of us. We have both had great emotional grief in our lives. (We both had to bury our baby girls). I don't know if this "itch" is due to sun, spine, nerves, or emotional, but it is affecting my life. If anyone out there has anything in common with me, please respond. I had NO idea there were so many of us out there. Thanks so much.
