I have had itchy arms for prob 5-7 years. It doesn't really feel like pins and needles though, more just a prick or two but like others there is nothing on my arm. At the moment it is just on my upper arms, though it moves from time to time to my lower arms or shoulders. I always thought it has to be something in my diet. I Started to cut out acidic foods but that didn't make a difference. The only thing i have noticed it that it is worse when i drink red wine or too much coffee or if i am dehydrated. Has anyone else noticed this?

Helps strengthen the kneecap mechanism by applying pressure on the tendon above the kneecap as well. This tends to reduce the forces of the quadriceps on the patella tendon and erosion of the under surface of the kneecap due to a possible misalignment of the quadriceps (Q-angle).
