So my skin has been really dry, especially the thigh area. I've been skin crawling and biting sensations and frequent muscle twitching. What is this?
Eczema : Eczema, (think extra sensitive dry over reactive skin) gets much worse in the winter, especially areas that rub. The itch associated with this can seem to be an unnatural pain.

Use lots of moisturizers, avoid scratching. ...Read more

I have what feels like a muscle twitching/tingly sensation on the base of my skull (left side) for 2 days now. What could be causing this?
Skin tingling: Have a doctor look at the skin on your scalp. I always think of shingles when I hear this kind of story. Often the tingling feeling starts a couple days before the rash appears. This is the time to see a doctor, because the earlier you get started on the medication for shingles, the more it will help. After 48 hrs of the rash, the medicine doesn't make much of a difference. ...Read more

It depends: Involuntary muscle twitching can be caused by electrolyte imbalances (low potassium, for example); overuse (fatigue), some neurological conditions (writer's cramp among other things) dehydration, and even some medications or discontinuation of medication.
