I'm 19 and 175 lbs. For the past 3 days Ive been having really strange symptoms and Im starting to lose my mind. Basically at random I get these weird sensations at isolated parts of my body. Basically it could be anywhere from my forehead to my thighs. They last for a few seconds at most.

1) I feel them when Im actually thinking about them. If Im preoccupied then I dont feel them.

2) They arent that severe. When your foot falls asleep and then you start feeling those pins and needles, it is about 1000x less than that.

3) It is extremely subtle. Feel very very light, almost like a dull itch.

4) They can occur anywhere and last for a few seconds.

5) They feel like an itch and if I scratch then they go away.

  • I have the exact same symptoms. I find it so hard to describe the feeling but I think along the same lines as you. To be honest I think I have some anxiety issues. I went to the Dr. in October with upper abdominal pain and foggy headed feeling. Blood tests revealed elevated liver enzymes which has now been ruled down to 99% chance from alcohol. I really enjoyed my university years. Ever since this time though i've worried about everything from liver cancer, to auto-immune hepatitis, to colon cancer to whatever. All I do is google symptoms whenever I'm not feeling well and it just makes it worse. Now recently I've been having some lower abdominal pain and these feelings have come back. I don't know what to think. The more I think about it, the more it seems to happen.
