Mine is more of an itch at times, and then just tingles at other times. Gabby, my tingly scalp sensations can also feel like crawling parasites!!!!! Ick!!! But nothing was ever found in my head, of course, lol. Still get the weird crawling sensations every so often though. Really does feel like bugs! Think it's nerve issues though. I get "bug" sensations on my legs too, especially at night when I'm resting in bed, which seems like RLS (common in Fibromyalgia).
The pins and needles feelings along with the tingling scalp also sounds like nerve involvement. I don't think I have gotten any finger symptoms along with the tingling scalp though (haven't had tingling scalp lately though-- so I can't recall). I only tend to get pins and needles in my legs, feet, toes and on my face right underneath my eyes (I get some one-sided facial numbness).
Everyone is different though, of course. I am not DX with lupus right now, but i do seem to certainly have nerve issues. Either way, I relate to all of this.
