Skin Tingling

Hello All,
I'll cut to the chase; every day (often several times per day) I get a horrible tingling sensation over most my body. This includes feet, ankles, legs, chest, back, stomach and arms; my head and neck are not affected. The sensation feels like I've had a thistle stuffed down my clothing and feels like it requires (though I try to keep to a minimal level) scratching to alleviate it (which doesn't tend to work anyhow). I also feel as though I am burning up but have been told that my skin feels cold during the 'attack'. It can occur whilst resting, driving, walking, doing chores etc so there does not appear to be a set cause. It lasts from 5 to 10 minutes at a time and I have to stop whatever I am doing. #

Any ideas?


Forgot to add, I'm male, aged 23. Also, I don't get a rash, which seems to rule out prickly heat (and anyway it's winter and I still get it).
