More likely scalp: There are probably at least a dozen things I can think of that could cause tingly feelings in the scalp and itchy feelings in the back. Things such as neuropathies (due to nutritional issues or nerve entrapments), thyroid problems, allergic reactions (shampoos?), anxiety, and others, and also menopause....I doubt the last one so don't worry. Bottom line is that you need an appointment with a doc
