I have this problem a lot too (along with a LONG list of health problems, sadly). Have you ever had shingles? Someone recently wrote a medical article suggesting this might be related to the problem. (I have had shingles 3 times now and I'm only 24 years old [female>). I also started going to a chiropractor recently for back and neck pain, and found out that two vertebrae in my neck are growing one way, and one vert. the other way, and that I have MS in my back; according to my chiropractor, this is causing a nerve in my neck to be pinched which goes from my face down my neck into my chest. Both she and my doc believe it could be causing the sensation of itch in my brain because the nerve is misfiring. Have you ever been tested for lupus, lymphoma, thyroid disorders, spinal problems (even minor ones), or had shingles?View Thread
