Does anyone else get really itchy from anxiety?

I’ve heard it can be a symptom?
Makes me sooooooo fidgety - drives me crazy! Must admit that I’m not disciplined about moisturizing my body at all so that might be contributing to it.

I was just reading that itching can be a side effect after anaesthesia and I was under on Thursday when I had a colonoscopy. Although I am often v itchy, and anxious a lot of the time…

I had a sick uncle yrs ago and it took days for him to pass - I was nervous, sad, anxious, all torn up - and I broke out in hives all around my waist = itched me horribly. Day of funeral, my friend gave me a xanax - took 1/2 before going to funeral and other 1/2 that nite before bed - never itched again -- so I think yes, anxiety can make you itch - but looks like it could be your test also - and I'd be anxious anyhow before a colonoscopy - could be both things.

Don’t think that’s happened to me it’s always just hay fever and I never feel particularly anxious about it.

It happens in some it's why its best to try and calm down or realise that anxiety. Stress and anxiety can possible cause physical problems. With me I get the itch on rare occasional. What I do is put skin cream on those areas and have a bath to help me realise any of my worries. Or, listen to music that might smooth me. But also speaking to a medical professional about this might be handle too.
