hey y'all was just wondering if anyone has had any relief or remedy with something for the itchy/crawling feeling. It makes it almost impossible to get to sleep and it is causing extra stress I don't need, and it is keeping me up super late. I have tried itch relief creams, lotions,eczema creams, scratching is making it worse but it is impossible not too, tried cold packs,etc. Also I can't take Melatonin due to Epilepsy.

Have you tried a mixture of chamomile and lavender in a tea to help with sleep? Also, myrrh oil with spearmint oil added to a cream can help with itch.
I usually get that in my legs/arms. Weirdly one thing I’ve found helpful is wrapping tight a wet towel around my legs, it helps me change the sensation better than any other hot/cold techniques. Sometimes compression pants work but it can be hard to fall sleep in. I wish there was a better fix!!
For me it was a shower RIGHT before sleep. But now I also have some weighted blankets I put on me and something in headphones I can pay attention to, to not have to pay as much attention to the physical issuea.
Is it like restless leg syndrome? I take a medication for it. Sometimes it helps sometimes it doesn’t. These other suggestions I might try too
no this is the itchy/crawling feeling all the time.
Gabapentin helps me with that.
gabapentin has saved my existence. It doesn't work for everyone but it was one of my miracles.
