In brief: It may ...see below

Peripheral neuropathy is a common cause for crawling sensation of bugs on skin.
It happens when the peripheral nerves are damaged due to reasons such as vitamin b1, b6, B12 deficiency, diabetes mellitus, after a traumatic injury to the nerves, alcoholism, compression of nerves due to an awkward posture, thyroid disorder, just to name a few. So...Yes to the possible deficiency question.
