In brief: Should be evaluated

We are all covered with various bacteria ("normal flora").
Various kinds of staph are among the normal flora. Staph spreads by reproduction and is not motile (does not move of its own accord), and it is not possible to feel staph moving. Someone with staph in the bloodstream typically is seriously ill. The sensations are due to something else. It is worth being evaluated in clinic.
