Does hypersensitivity to touch have anything to do with anxiety?
I've tried to look it up on the internet, but I only found one site about it relating to anxiety, and it said; "Uncommon." I've been suffering from weird symptoms for 5 months now like; Numbness, tingling sensations, increased sensitivity to touch, headaches, anger, sadness and many more.
Those symptoms are just one of the worst ones.

I might get 1 or 2 weeks off from all symptoms and then I get one of them or all of them again. It's driving me insane, and Im starting to be very worried about myself.

I've been to different doctors, all possible bloodtests have been done and nothing can be found. I know MRI is one possibility to find out if I really have something in my brain that doesn't belong there...But I don't want to go.
I talked about it to one doctor, and she said that she didn't think I needed one. Now the only thought I have, is that did she really think that I didn't need one, or did she think I was crazy with all my symptoms? Anyways, no one else knows this except that doctor...But anyways, it makes me wonder.
(And no, Im not taking amy medication, even though one doctor wanted me to. Im against depression/"anxiety"-medications, as they have never worked on me.)

My symptoms to increased sense of touch are these:
If I have pants on=they bother. If im in bed and my sheets have fleeces, (hope this is the right word. English is not my first language) they bother like ***l.
All symptoms started from under my knees down to my leggs and now in the past 2 months they have raised above the knees to thighs. Sometimes I can feel the increased sense even in my hands and lower back.
This symptom is gonna drive me insane, unless someone can tell me it's really part of this whole anxiety-thing.
