Itching due to anxiety?
« on: February 13, 2014, 10:39:32 PM »
Does anyone experience this? I am itching all over my body almost constantly. Part of it is probably due to thinking about it, however, I was just wondering if anyone else has an itching problem due to anxiety.

I do not have this issue currently, but I frequently itched and if course the more I worried about it the worse it got.

Thanks for the reply, so you used to have this problem?

Bump, I'd really like to hear some more anecdotes, kind of freaking out now.

Yes. I itched a lot! I know I have threads on here about it. Legs, head, etc. Now I don't have widespread itching, but my back will itch when I get particularly stressed. The back itching happens here and there now.

The itching drove me crazy. It was a vicious cycle.

I itched for months, you can check my posts. I went to an allergist, regular md, who did blood work and abdomenial ultrasound. All negative. I believe it was stress. My husband was on the edge almost divorcing me and I believe it was stress that made me itch because every time I was around him I broke out in hives. Strange but true.

I scratch the hell out of my back when I'm anxious. It's a bad habit.

It could be because it's cold and the air is dry. Itchy dry skin is extremely common around this time of year.
