Try to rub away: Hi AngelaG strange feelings can be paresthesias, coming from nerves acting up due to pressure or a virus. The one we treat is H Zoster (shingles) but if that was happening you would feel painful bumps. I would massage the area and hope it doesnt come back. If it does, consult your PCP.
