Feathers touching my arm/ insects crawling in my feet?

When will this ever end? Last few days it feels like a feather is stroking my left arm it feels like insects are running up and down my feet. I keep looking and there is no hair and no feather: ok I googled it’s called formicaton and can be symptoms off Parkinson’s MS diabetes early menopause. I can go on. I am very very very teary and I can feel my heart pounding my chest with worry.has anyone had this and it goes away? My heart can’t take more of this shock and upset. Really really sad and I can’t shake it off.

Yes I have had exactly that girl. I have even swatted at my legs and feet before because I even get where it feels like a mosquito bites. I can tell you exactly why I have it, I have nerve damage and pinched nerve in lower back and my neck, along with degenerative disc and joint diseases. A few tests and a doctor can let you know if you have that or even part of that. If that is all ready ruled out, than rest assured our nervous system is responding to all kinds of things with our anxiety and all of our stress. Good luck

Thanks for your reply. Did the doctor give you medicine and all these things stop? Is it just an X-ray of your back or is it blood tests? I’m always scared of something scary being found out.

Yeah I had x-rays and a couple MRI and an emg. I know it's scary, I guess I got to the point where my anxiety and fears of not knowing what was going on with my body was scary to me, I tend to be obsessive in my need to know i have a habit of thinking if I can figure it out maybe I can change it . Somethings I could but alot I couldn't. One thing is for sure I find a great deal of of comfort and peace when I have solid answers

That’s so true closure x I will give it a few more days as it wasn’t there last week if it continues will see a doctor. Which specialist would it be you think?
