    Soon after I started getting mystery bites, I started experiencing other skin sensations. For a while it was crawling/tingling/pinpricks pretty much all over my body, but in the last two weeks the sensations have diminished to mostly tingling in my legs, some pinpricks and spot itching (and mystery bites are consistently smaller now). The best way I can describe the tingling is it is like my legs are mildly electrically charged. The strange thing about the tingling is it occurs in specific areas in my home: living room, office and a small area in my kitchen (not bedroom). As I enter/leave these areas, the tingling builds/dissipates. This has led me to consider a possible environmental cause, but I have no idea what cause to suspect - nothing has changed in my home recently.

    ANY ideas what could be the cause? What kind of professional could I contact for help investigating environmental causes? I'm totally lost in how to investigate this.

    If you aren't sure it's a pest problem, then skin specialists are a good start. If it's confirmed insect bites, then inspection from a pco should be the next step imo.

    Thanks for your suggestion - I am seeing a doctor tomorrow. I had a PCO inspection last week that didn't find anything.

    I am suspecting if maybe my general skin sensitivity has been increased by some unknown cause and that the tingling is experienced in areas that have some amount of static or electrical energy.

    I've had this sensation since the first time I got bb 3 years ago. Sometimes I can feel something crawling on my leg or back and then I look, and there's nothing. I have no explanation for it except that it may be it's psychological problem. A hallucination provoked by fear of bugs. I have no evidence that's a real thing though.
