Uncontrollable itching during a walk!?
So I just experienced the oddest thing! I was taking my dog out to do his business and I noticed that it was just such a cool and nice evening, so I decided on a whim to just go walk around the neighborhood. I got about halfway through my planned walk and my legs started itching. I ignored it, but it got so bad that I was scratching while I was walking and I'm sure I looked very strange. Eventually, I had to turn around and start back home--by then, it was simply unbearable. I am serious when I say it was the worst itching I think I ever remember experiencing!! I seriously wanted to sit down in the middle of the road and scratch myself all over!!!(only on my legs, but all over both legs).
It was the strangest thing--I have never experienced this before! I didn't go very far and it wasn't a challenging walk by far, flat area. I walk on the treadmill for an hour sometimes and I've never experienced this. In fact, earlier in the day, I had done another exercise(gazelle) for 40 minutes(inside) and was completely fine. I've walked and ran this route probably 100 times!
I am a walker. I really enjoy walking, and walking fast. I don't know if it was something outside, like pollen? As soon as I got home and satiated the itching, it went away. Has anyone else ever experienced this???
I did not turn red or develop hives or anything--I was only red where I had scratched myself. I do have very sensitive skin--especially on my legs, because I shave there. My legs are not 'out of shape' by any means. What could have happened here??
