Heart palpitations and being very itchy in my sleep. ARe these symptoms?

I've been diagnosed with anxiety and panic attacks.
My symptoms are......backache, severe headaches that Tylenol and Iboprofen won't touch, problems concentrating and problems remembering stuff, constipation, sleep disturbances, I tire easily, sometimes weakness,sometimes aches and pains, Im sure there is more but it's hard to think.
I take Paxil and sometimes Ativan for my anxiety. Over the counter I take a multivitamin, stool softener, a vitamin B supplement when I remember, AZO yeast when I remember. I think I've given up on Tylenol and Ibuprofen but have turned to Aleve, pain patches, pain creams, and my best friend my heating pad.

Just about everybody has a few heart palps which may be more noticeable when you are in bed. If they are severe or long lasting you should see your doctor!

You might just have somewhat dry skin that feels itchy when you are in bed also. It's easy to ignore stuff when we are up and about. You could try a lukewarm shower, pat slightly dry, then slather on some nice skin cream. I got a nice pad on a stick to reach my itchy back.

Itchiness can be from keratosis pilaris - which about 50% of people have. It's inherited and some people have it worse than others. It looks like a mild raised rash or little zits, mostly on the backs of the upper arms and front of thighs.
