I’ve been experiencing an itchy crawling sensation on my body, is it caffeine?

I’ve been experiencing an itchy crawling sensation on my body recently with no rash or bites or anything. I’ve had this before about 2-3 weeks ago and sometime before that too and it seems to gradually disappear and then return again. I get the itching on my face, scalp, arms and legs. I did go to my doctor and she said it must be an allergy because there’s no sign of anything on my body. Did think it may be caffeine as i previously started to drink it a lot more often, so have took that out my diet but still not sure that is the issue.

Hi,
This can be caused by caffeine induced stress ,A lack of vitamin B12 or other vitamins.
Abnormal levels of calcium, potassium, or sodium in the body.
So it is good to stop caffeine now .

Hi
My opinion. You should check for hyperglycemia ,hypothyroidism ,deficiencies in vitamin B-1, B-6, B-12, E, or may be you are getting too much vitamin D
Good Luck
