    Went to sleep in usual armer and this morning decided to take off my sock on left arm (hot) 8am - fell back to sleep for 19 minutes
    woke to awful itching and a combination of shapes - round inflamed (swelled) and straight
    lines that were thin yet had risen and were itchy, and little bumps. Now 9:15 - all shapes seem to have disappeared except one thin line that is no longer swelled or itchy. I couldn't send pix - but my description is fairly clear I think. Now what's this all about? Am I going nuts?

    Sounds like an allergic reaction.

    Was the arm you uncovered the only skin that was affected?

    Have you confirmed the presence of bed bugs? If so the lines could represent a generalized reaction to bites or it could be due to skin contact with another allergen.
