I have this issue in my tailbone too. For years (almost 20) since I was about 14 have deAlt with it(not very well). Alcohol and drugs mostly. Everyone said it was anxiety. Yet I never ran into anyone that had the same symptom. It's almost like I am supposed to have a tail and I want to wag it ferociously but I can't cause I don't have one. I was on tramadol for some chronic pain then decided I didn't want to tAke it anymore and the feeling came back 100 fold. Gonna bring this up with my dr. ThNk you

Tylenol or generic version helps me, i get it all the time.
Hi, I have some same symptoms. Up researching it now, 1am anyway the only thing i have found for me that works is something quite simple. Tylenol. I take 2 tylenol when my inner bones or muscles feel like they tickle and in about 20 minutes i am able to rest. I am 47 and 190lb

Its been going on now for about 5 years, about 3 times a week at night. I fight it, my inner feet tickle in my ankles and it wont stop, then i finally get frustrated enough to take 2 tylenol and it relaxes me enough to fall to sleep. Not tylenol pm either, just two regular extra strength tylenol or generic.

Other than that, it drives me nuts until i either take the two pills or drink a couple glasses of wine or beer. But if i drink the wine or beer i am tired all day the next day, so i prefer the tylenol.

Hope that helps,

Hi Toddl...I have the same problem, I get a tickle feeling in my feet and ankle and then comes the pain where I have to scratch my feet and them more pain where I wouild have to rub my feet with my hands or rub them back and forth on the carpet.

If I'm at work I would have to take a gabapentin then that takes 20-30 minutes to work, but if I'm at home I would have to drink a beer to stop the pain I have shared this with my dr and he just looked at me as if I had a real serious problem besides whats going on with my feet.

Sometimes when I get real neverious and upset my feet start that tickle feeling and it hard if your out in public and need to take your shoes off to rub your feet. I excited to know that I am not the only person with the same remedy to this problem of the itchy feet....

Leg tickles?
See this is odd finding this - or that I randomly decided to look into it... for as long as I could remember (I'm 25) I've sort of had this weird sensation where it feels like my body tickles itself -- just lately I've noticed that it's only my right leg... it's weird b/c it's been like that for as long as I could remember... is that like Restless Leg syndrome where it just tickles? Sometimes at night - it keeps me awake -- or in long car trips (not comfortable when I'm driving), etc... is 25 too young for stuff like this? (I've seriously had this since I could remember - so idk) - b/c I hear this stuff hits middle-aged people...

Wrath of the Tickle
I never thought I would ever find anyone else who had a similar problem to what I have. I've had it for as long as I can remember. The only difference with my is that there is no specific region it starts in. It just starts in my spine somewhere at any point. I usually don't feel it any lower than my back but many times it feels like it's going right to the top of my head. I have it so much that it drives me insane and I have even cried over it. It's so exhausting.

]t's an amazingly unbearable deep tickle in my spine. I would go to bed and would feel it shooting through my spine like crazy, and I would have to arch my back and tense up all the muscles in my body in order to lessen the effect of it. This helped but since it's extremely unbearable, it never got rid of it. I have to do it until I'm so exhausted that I just zonk out. I get these sensations when water hits the top of my head and I'm not straight up. I can't go to the salon and get my hair shampooed and conditioned without going through an unbearable spine tickling session the entire time, and I squirm around everywhere cause I just can't stand it.

Doctos couldn't tell me what it was or never focused on it because they didn't seem to know. Now that I found this forum and have an idea of options I can take, I am so grateful! Thank you all for sharing!!

Have you for out what is wrong? All these stories are similar to mines, but there aren't any real diagnosis that I see. I am losing my mind. I begin to feel panicky. My feeling is coming up the middle of my body from my hips and ends up in the center of my chest. It almost feels like my tongue wants to move uncontrollably. I can't tell if I'm having a panic attack too or if my symtoms are getting more severe. Do I see a neurologist?

tickling sensation occuring "anytime it likes to"
I also have this tickling sensation. In fact, I'm feeling it at this very moment in almost all of my left body's joints. And now it includes the left side of my head; so this makes me realize that the condition is quite serious. I actually have this sensation since younger. I have to stretch my legs, arms and other parts affected to get it out of me. The result, I end up messing my bed with only few hours of sleep just like you.

I'm 21 years old now; and I feel it gets worse and occurs more frequent. It occurs either night or day. Sometimes, it goes with pain that makes it hard for me to walk or move. My thoughts suggest it's kind of an early case of rheumatism; but it seems that rheumatism has nothing to do with the tickling "thing". Rheumatism aches and inflammates the affected joint/s. This is what I find out.

I have had this in my shoulder and arm. The tickle sensation can be strong. It's a vague, maddening feeling.

It took me a while to track it down; but I believe it's caused by cutting off the circulation for an extended period while sleeping. The sensation during the day is an odd, nagging, deep tickle feeling.

Arg. Having this exact pain right now. In both hands. I'm trying to let myself actually feel it but it's so irritating I have to move and shake my hands! It's tickling/ little shooting sensations in side my hands. But not exactly painful. I used to get them in my feet and legs and thought I was going crazy because I couldn't explain it to Anyone with out seeming silly. I think I will start taking vitamins. I know I'm not the healthiest eater, and wondering if it's the hidden crap in food that is processed thats doing it. I know it's not from lack of exercise because I've had them when ive been fit and used to exercise everyday. Just took some ibeprophen which helps a little bit. Wish I had a stronger muscle relaxer. That's what I feel would work. Any ways. I'm up shaking my body and hands, so I'll see how I go. Let me know Any more simple ways of helping this problem with no name. Cheers

Deep tickle sensation on left side.
I'm having some similar problems. Deep tickle in my left hip and butt. Also radiates down left leg to foot and up to my left shoulder. It almost feels weak too. Also been having a twitching in my gland area under my jaw. Same side. It makes me feel weak and it's kind of got that feeling of an uncontrollable urge to push or grunt. Similar to the bodies automatic reaction with child birth. It's so hard to describe. I do have a history of a small spinal canal and for awhile, and maybe still have a kink in my spinal cord at my neck area. It caused other weird symptoms. Its really a scary feeling.

Annoying feeling in joints specifically right sideof body.
I have symptoms of deep ticklish annoying feeling on the right side of my body specifically my joints. So it's my ankle, my knee, my hip, my elbow, my shoulder and vague areas of my head all on the right side.

Ive had it since i was a little kid and to relive it, i would hit the areas with my fist to relive the water torture like feeling on my right side of the body.

It went away for a while using kolonopin but when i started to increase my exercising, it started not justhappening at night but also during the day time.

I first thought it was RLS, but my psychiatrist differs.

All I can say is that doctors are far from knowing everything altho they know a lot. And it is a mystery with no cure to this maddening miserable restless annoying torturous feeling on my joints only the the right side of my body. All I can do is pray.

Hip pains
Hi all

I have serous problems at night with weird tingling in my hip joints at night. The only relief is stretching or swinging my leg around in circles, then it creeps into the other leg. I spend months like this and ended up on anti depressants and sleeping pills (zopiclone) due to lack of sleep stress. I had my iron levels checked by my doctor one day and he said I had extremely low ferritin levels. He prescribed me a high does ferrous sulphate and 1 week in the leg pains stopped. I'm off all the pills now apart from the iron which has worked a miracle!

I recommend an iron deficiency test.

Restless legs
i have had most of these symptoms but they have relived a fair bit in the past week or so. its more than likely that its restless leg syndrome. causes can be from caffeine to low iron levels. i have cut my caffeine levels and it has helped a noticeable amount. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/P MH0001810/ this can help with any questions you have

I have been having the same thing, only just in my lower to middle back on the right side although there have been times it has seemed to travel to the left side. I have been having this for the better part of ten years, although after I got sober ( meth and alcohol plus other drugs) I thought it was gone. I thought maybe it was a side effect, for lack of a better term, of the meth use, but now after having been sober for eight years, I rather doubt that had anything to do with it.
I had wondered however if it had something to do with the fact that I had adult chicken pox in early 2003, but I am aware that that usually manifests as shingles which is suppose to be very painful, and while this is excruciating in its own way, it is not the kind of burning pain, etc.,associated with that.

It feels like a severe tickling inside, like from the inside out, of my back and I always wake up with it, and then I end up being afraid to move as every time I do it's enough to make me scream and as a result, like several other folks here have mentioned, I am just exhausted, to say the least. And not able to function AT All!! I spent the whole day on the couch pretty much in tears,(last week) and then had to take something to help me sleep that night and then just had to rest the whole next day. I have had this twice in the past year and it is so bad I am literally terrified of it flaring up again. I simply cannot function, can't drive, can't even move essentially, when this happens, and it could literally drive me insane. I mentioned it to my doctor and they have absolutely no idea, I get sort of a blank look and I've felt like I was crazy until I saw these posts here. And I am so sorry anyone else is going through this, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy, but I have to say it is a relief to finally have some hope that there might be a name for this!!! Thank you so much for your posts here and my heart goes out to you.

tickling sensation and tremor
Hi

I've also had a tickling sensation in the right side of my body for as long as I can remember; it's mainly in my knee but sometimes all over. It makes me really irritable and frustrating to the point I want to scream. I've also suffered with other symptoms since 2009 and most recently in the last twelve months I've had a tremor and spinning feeling inside along with confusion, right sided weakness, blurred vision and slurred speech.

My Dr has been really supportive and is helping to find answers but the problem is Drs aren't superhuman and don't always have the answers. Medicine is evolving and new diseases/disorders are discovered in time. So I'm guessing that if no one can tell us what's wrong it's cus research needs to be carried out and a diagnoses discovered. In the meantime we just have to live with it.

What it sounds like you guys are talking about is what i feel when my hips/pelvic bone are slightly out of place. Im a 28 yr old female and didn't have a major problem with the symptoms described until i was pregnant. MEN... dont worry. Everybody has hips and a pelvis. With women spicifically, pregnancy of any kind can disrupt the allignment of our bones. My mom showed me an amazing strech...
Lay on something flat on your back (bed or floor is best). Bring one knee straight to your chest and hold for 10 seconds with your hands below your kneecap. Then do the same thing with the other leg. Make sure your legs are folded as straight as possible to promote proper realignment. Repeat as many times until you feel relief. It's truely amazing after 1-3 sets before bed. Best of luck to all sufferers!

Answer to tickle (maybe)
I know what it is. Many of you sound like you have Pirformus Muscle Spasm Syndrome. It's a muscle deep in the joint that will spasm. There are many nerves there so it can feel like a ticket or you can have severe pain from your sciatic. Women are more likely to get it. Check it out. I sound like many of you, and I believe that's your answer.
