Terrible itching!

I've had this problem for few months now and I can't stand it anymore.

Whenever I get a little stressed, mad or anything, it starts itching a little. At first. 10 seconds later my whole body itches like crazy - back, chest, hair, arms and legs. Even my face itches. The weird thing is that it's not a problem when I'm relaxed - only when I get nervous/mad/stressed!

What's wrong?

Re: Terrible itching!

Physical Urticaria are hives brought on by a physical stimulus, I get it from cold weather, water and pressure.

Heat can induce hives (different from "heat rash"), sweat, exercise, sunlight and in the case of emotion-triggered hives - it's probably a histamine reaction to adrenaline - but they don't really know what causes physical urticaria.

It can be treated with anti-histamines. You might want to get a basic blood work up just to rule out other causes like thyroid disease or lupus.

yeah I've thought of that.. but it has to be something new then because as far as I'm concerned I'm not allergic to anything.. and the weird thing is that it only itches when I get upset.
