STRESS.

Sounds crazy, I know. I was going through the EXACT same thing. My partner said it was stress--I didn't want to believe it. I did an Internet search and the first thing I found - STRESS. There is a lot of information on this on the Web and there are many suggestions for getting it under control--which, essentially, means getting the stress under control--via breathing or whatever else. It still happens with me occasionally. I get the hydrocortisone, apply some, breathe slowly and deeply, remind my brain to slow down and relax, gently place my hand on the place that is itching, breathe, recognize that nothing physiological exists to cause this, breathe some more and it subsides. It's maddening, I know. Good luck.
