Why does this happen?

Every now and again, I will suddenly get this really itchy sensation in my lower legs on both sides. It will become so itchy that I scratch it until the skin brakes , bleeds and it becomes painful. I've researched a lot of things like nerve damage or high blood sugar, etc., but I haven't been to the doctor. I will probably go if it gets unbearable.

Are you allergic to anything that's food and/or environmentally related?

Are you allegic to any medications you've been taking lately? Please call your doctor and schedule an appointment to be seen and tested for possible allergies. Please let us know if they also have you go see a dermatologist.

Can it be the socks / stockings you are wearing? The fabric might be giving reactions.

It sounds like Circulation problems to me ? Diet Tonic Water is very cheap & nice without the Gin.
