Weird Sensation


Recommended Posts

This is hard to explain,but it almost feels like someone or something is touching me very very lightly on my arms and legs or like a bug is on me. Could this be neuro related? Anyone else experience anything like this? Pat

This is called "fleeting paresthesia". It's common and has a long list of possible causes, such as vitamin deficiencies, like B12, thyroid disease, changes in blood sugar or electrolyte levels, to name a few. I see you take Prozac, and it may be related as a side effect of this medication. Another reason may be the activation of sensations by the small sensory fibers in the skin - aka small fiber neuropathy, but this is less common. Even things like lack of sleep and too much caffeine can cause this. Ask your doctor if it persists; hope this helps.
