Hi, My son is the one with CP, but his spasms don't make him itch (we were asked to watch) But I have heard of this. It can also happen during your PT aparently. A lad with diaplegia I met said he gets various feelings during PT inc itching. The way your muscles are reacting and moving. Not first hand experience sorry, but might be helpful?

Thanks for the post, Basswife. I'm glad you've heard of it and glad your son doesn't have the problem. I just wanted to know if I was the strange one or if someone else had experienced something similar. I feel it is good to know you're not the only one and I just finally had to ask the question.
I always feel embarrassed if it happens somewhere in public or with company... as a girl I was taught it wasn't lady-like to scratch an itch (any itch!) and I always feel weird scratching my elbow, leg or foot randomly . I always wonder what people must think of me!
I think they think She's got an itch! Don't worry about it! Itching is normal, no one should thiink any less of you. I say if you've got an itch scratch it, unless its somewhere private or a big one thats going to be silly! Its not unlady like to itch. Just be gentle!
