Anxiety has given me very strange feelings in my head..tingling, crawling, goosebumps sensations. Also what I can only described as an exaggerated startle reflex at the slightest noise. SSRI's can cause these feelings too. Sometime when I move or blink my eyes/head I hear a swishing noise that comes with an adrenalin rush. No doctor seems to be concerned. I was just recently dx'd with a nut allergy also...at 63 years old! I also ate a piece of a cantaloupe the other day and my whole mouth tingled for about three hours. What? There are so many foods that have nuts in them and I have to look at every label carefully. I have to ask resturants if they use Peanut Oil to cook in...many do, as it is so cheap.
Anxiety...meds...allergies? I guess it could be a combo. I know how you feel!
Hi...just want to mention that peanuts are a legume(I'm sure your doc probably told you that) and things like green beans, chick peas, kidney beans have the same protein in them as nuts that trigger the allergy. I itched all over after eating a bowl of chili, not even thinking about the stupid kidney beans. Not every one who has a peanut/nut allergy has this reaction to all legumes but when you described the itching...well, just thought I'd mention it.
