Just a quickie! Very unlike me, I know. Does anyone else keep feeling as though they’ve been bitten? It’s usually around my ankles & lower legs & the back of my neck & arms. Of course, there never is a bite or a sting but I feel so stupid when I keep swatting at something that isn’t there! Also, labels in clothes drive me mad! Some feel like razor blades!

Hi Yasmintina. I shudder at the thought of anything made of wool. I can’t bear anything tight (as long as the knicker elastic is just tight enough not to let me down)! I can’t wear bras or clingy stuff. (Un)luckily I have to rely on my fat to keep me warm.
I had nerve conduction studies which, again showed problems, but they are sending me for another MRI. I just think nobody knows what to do with me and I continue to circle around to eventually (they hope) I disappear up my own ☀️🙈 xx Nic
Yep - feel like a have a wet patch on my thigh, forever checking it just to make sure it isn't actually wet. Equally the itching drives me bonkers. Kaftans at home nice and loose fitting and baggy onesies I hate going to work and having to wear uniform it's so restrictive. Case of stripping off as soon as I get home.
Yes, I think that’s what I was told once. My sister, who is 5 years older, also has it. It’s definitely coming from the spine & mine is, as the surgeon delicately put it, ‘knackered’ and said one option would be to fuse my spine. I politely declined but he’s still sending me for another MRI on my spine anyway. 🙄 Nic xx
Yes!! I get random itching sensations and tingles like there’s something crawling over my skin, especially in the hot weather. My partner was very amused when he caught me examining my ankles with a magnifying glass😂 Thankfully the sensations come and go and don’t impact too much and I accept it as yet another part of this weird condition as my neuro conductivity tests were fine.
Haha! I do things like that. What makes it worse was my husband (who attended our nephew’s 21st on Saturday while I couldn’t face the long car journey - bloody hell) said he put the telly on and they were talking about the heat causing bed bugs to survive & increase in numbers especially in big cities. He said we should be OK living out in the sticks but I couldn’t help thinking I should be burning all the clothes he was wearing! 🐪 I put a picture of a camel because I couldn’t find a bed bug. As I’ve been sending this message I’ve had two ‘ouch’ moments on my big toe. My husband laughed! Nic xx
Re-opening crazy itch sessions....I have been on a mission to prove I had something crawling in my hair, just about went crazy scratching my scalp, used nit comb with whole bottle of conditioner every day for a week..nothing..still got crazy itchy scalp and stupid baby soft hair now, likewise I can't wear any wool, or tight fitting clothes, just give me pyjamas and I'm happy...ish
