    Until you see your doctor, I would definitely try some stretching/yoga and see if that helps!

    Actually not ruling out anything at this point, so thank you!

    What is interesting, many years ago, like ten, I felt like I did have restless leg. I did not even need to be diagnosed, I just felt it!

    But it went away eventually, and now this!

    Perhaps it IS all related!

    Guess I better make appointment with neurologist after all.. .

    Don't want to mess with my health.

    Thanks guys!

    Oh I do yoga and pilates three times a week, in addition to running every day.

    Maybe I will kick the yoga up to every day though.

    I wonder if on the days I go to yoga class, it helps.

    I will have to track this to see if it is.

    Wiseman, I think you may be right about food allergies.

    I have noticed just lately, itchies are wose when I eat bread, pastries, pretzels, pasta, even oatmeal which I like to eat most mornings.

    Although no rash, I am thinking some sort of allergy to anything with gluton?

    Will see allergist first, bf suggested that too.

    Will start taking anti-histamine too, just to see if the make a difference.

    Starting this thread, got me thinking about different things now.

    Tnx again.

    It helps to gather all the data you can before seeing a doctor. E.g. : What happens if you lie down on something other than a bed (e.g. couch, rug, floor). Same physical reaction? If you relax and fall asleep sitting in a reclining chair, same reaction then? Also try increasing the temperature in your room and decreasing the temperature in your room; see if there's any change. Any different if you keep the room cold and sleep under a few blankets, as opposed to keeping it warm and sleeping with just a sheet? Any difference depending what position you lie down in (on your back, on your front, on your side?)

    Good luck.

    Tnx.

    Yeah, I thought it might be the bed, but experienced same on the couch.

    I even thought it might be bed bugs or dust mites but I have no bites or rash, and same happens when I stay at bfs.

    I started drinking wheatgrass juice from Jimbos, which is gluten free, but had not the past few days, and I seemed more itchy!

    My bf actually bought me a wheat grass juicer for Xmas cause he knows how much I like but can't get to Jimbo's every day.

    So now I can drink every day, and will see if there is a difference.

    I am home today and just made some. Two ounces.

    It's supposed to have lots of health and healing benefits... so will see how it goes.

    Your itching is a symptom of pain. If you are only staying at your BF's place, obviously it's your BF's place. Common reaction to an allergic reaction to Fiberglass insulation.

    With the numb foot - may need to go up two shoe sizes (I use to run too) - have you gotten fitted at a running store specialist?

    No I stay at both his and mine.

    We alternate.

    He doesn't itch when he stays at mine.

    No I have never been fitted by running store specialist.

    Interesting theory!

    If he's not be allergic to fiberglass insulation, then he won't have that same reaction. Have you gotten an allergy test done?

    I've done a few half marathons - so, I would get the right running shoes.
