    Muscle "itch"?
    JDDowell posted:
    I have had this annoying symptom increasingly regularly. It is very hard to describe. The best I can is a deep muscle "itch", and the only way to relive it is to give that muscle attention, in other words to flex the muscle. This is especially annoying because it occurs exclusively when I am resting or trying to sleep. It is NOT painful at all. There are NO muscle spasms. The first time it was left leg and left arm. I had the intense urge to roll over. This made the symptom go away for a few seconds before I felt the need to roll over again. The second time it was just the right side of my middle back. Today it is right side of middle back, right leg, and right arm. Any advice is appreciated, ask any related question you wish, I want this fixed!
