    Seems I have been told or read something about the body's response to pain can be in the form of itching. Something about the body not knowing how to respond or not having the right transmittors, so by default the body itches. Anyone else heard about this?

    that this is a form of pain.... maybe? and it could be. Otherwise itching can be from many things... blood dyscrasias, neuro problems, dry skin, and others.... I itch frequently as well... sometimes scratching myself raw! Good luck!
