Itchiness from heat or stress? No rash or marks.

Posted by mitchy02 (My Page) on

Lately when it gets somewhat hot or when I get stressed, I get a rush of prickly spikes (that feels like it's poking me) which then I get really itchy all over my body, arms and legs.

What's weird is that I dont get any heat rashes or bumps or red marks. I do get heat rash sometimes when I work out though but this isn't the case.

Anyone know what I'm talking about or a way to get this of this?

Hmm...sounds like hives,which I think can be brought on by stress.
When I get very upset,break out in big red blotches all over my chest.They dont itch though and usually go away when I calm down.
I think if you go to the doctor,they can give you something for the itching...maybe even for the stress too.

mitchy.......are you female? Could you be in perimenopause? You can get funky things like that when your hormones start fluctuating.
Also, be sure to take a multivitamin every day......and be sure to get "B" supplements too. That can affect your sensory stuff.
My neck used to get so itchy, and I discovered that it was dairy products.....especially ice cream, so be aware of what you've eaten in the last 24 hours too.
When I went through perimenopause, I got all sorts of funky neuro stuff........buzzing and tingling in my legs and abdomen, feeling like the top of my scalp was contracting. The B vitamins really helped.
