I have mild sensations of 'itchy feelings' in numerous parts of my body, but scratching those areas does not relieve the itch.

  • I have mild sensations of 'itchy feelings' in numerous parts of my body, but scratching those areas does not relieve the itch.It happens to me, too. For example, it feels like my arm is itching but when i scratch there, it doesn't work. So i start to scratch my whole body till i find the real itchy place, which is actually my leg, for example. When i scratch it, the itching feeling in my arm goes away. Does it have a name in medicine? I mean it's not a big deal but i just wonder.

  • This just happened to me once again and I finally had to search to see if this actually happens to other people. I find that the itch is actually an area totally on a different arm, leg, etc. than where I seemed to feel it's located at first. This drives me nuts ... it's so odd! Does anyone know anything more about it?? Thanks.It happens to me, too. For example, it feels like my arm is itching but when i scratch there, it doesn't work.

  • Did anyone find out what possibly this is as I get this all the time ever since I was a young girl but it seems to be happening more.
