I've noticed that over the years whenever i'm really tired or sleepy, my body starts to get itchy, to the point where i'm scratching from head to toe.

Itchiness: In the absence of rash, itching is much more commonly due to dry or irritated skin than to underlying problems. Be sure to moisturize well after bathing using a non-alcohol containing lotion and to hydrate adequately. Try reducing the time and water temperature when bathing and use non-irritating soap such as Dove. You might find the itch disappears.
