This seems like the best place to post this.

Over the last couple years I've noticed a sensation on some parts of my body that feels like I just walked into a spiderweb. I have a huge fear of spiders so everytime I feel it I frantically try to find it and pull it off, but there's nothing there.

Now I know some people will say I'm just not seeing them or something like that, but normally you can see spiderwebs. When I walk into a real spiderweb and feel it, I can see it on my skin and feel it when I peel it off.

So when these fake spiderweb sensations hit me and I see nothing on me it freaks me out. Does this happen to you guys?

What the hell could it be? What are your thoughts?

When you try to wipe the spiderweb off does the feeling of it being there go away? I occasionally get the same sensation and when i wipe it off, whatever it was goes away. Normally I wipe away first, than look

yeah I know what U mean, but it are pieces of "spider wire"

some spiders are really small.

Here's one I photographed this summer next to a clothespin on a washing line in a garden.

Wow...I have the EXACT same thing happen very frequently and I always freak out too because I absolutely abhor spiders. Unfortunately, I do have alot of spiderwebs on my patio and around my carport, so often it IS just a spiderweb. More often than not it is otherwise a strand of my hair, which is quite long.

But every now and then I will find no noticeable external cause for the sensation, and that does indeed worry me more than a real spiderweb.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


I experience this exact same thing more than I care to admit. The fact that I absolutely abhor spiders does nothing to help the situation, either.

Chances are you are running into some extremely fine webs. That coupled with a fear of spiders probably makes you a little more attuned to feeling them. Call it a heightened level of sensitivity.

And while I'm not generally one to promote or condone violence...

All spiders are evil and must die a smushable death!!!!!

Alright, I feel better now.



As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

I don't doubt that sometimes it's just tiny webs I can't see, but it happens quite a bit where I'm sitting right now in my computer room. I'll just be sitting here surfing the net when I feel the sensation on my arms or legs.

It's possible it could just be my subconcious playing tricks on me, but it still freaks me out

Not to freak you out or anything, but.....

I have heard people with Morgellens describe this as a sensation that is common to that phenomena.

Actually though when that happens to me it is usually one of my hairs gone astray!

Congrats... you've just freaked me out



Morgellons (also called Morgellons disease or Morgellons syndrome) is a name given in 2002 by Mary Leitao[1] to a proposed infectious condition characterized by a range of cutaneous (skin) symptoms including crawling, biting, and stinging sensations; finding fibers on or under the skin; and persistent skin lesions (e.g., rashes or sores).


Not to sound like a hypochondriac but... I often feel crawling sensations under my skin, most often the back of my neck.

Often when I'm really frustrated or aggravated, there is a stinging sensation up and down my entire back that lasts for minutes. It can be very painful sometimes.

And for the skin lesions... Over the past couple years I've had 3 outbreaks of these very wierd skin lesions that were mainly around my center mass. The stinging sensations accompanied these as I would feel the stinging all over my body rather than just on my back. The last time I had an outbreak was around 4 months ago.

I don't remember finding any fibres anywhere on my body though...

Thank you for the contribution interestedalways, you've inspired me to make a cautionary appointment with my doctor...

Wow, I am kinda sorry I posted that.

It isn't something to make light of by any means. I was reading a thread on here that mentioned the spiderweb feeling and that is why I made the association.

A cautionary visit to the doctor to ease your mind would probably be helpful.

Personally I wouldn't start thinking about it unless you really think something is up because you know the power of the mind. Don't go smoking any of the Devil's Lettuce and thinking about such things!

This thread is the one that I believe mentioned the spiderweb feeling.

Haha don't worry about it. I saw what the Morgellons lesions look like on Google, and they look nothing like what I had (thank christ because Morgellons looks horrible
)

I might as well keep the doctors appointment though and bring up the stinging sensations and the lesion outbreaks as they get quite bothersome.

Morgellons.................NO DOUBT...yikes & bummer.

This is the EXACT sensation described by people who have it......when they first start to 'feel it'............."creepy crawly skin sensations that feel like invisible spiderwebs" thats how they describe it.

Get yourself to dermatologist.....asap

Read up on morgellons so your well informed.....plenty of links right here on ATS.

Now as to it JUST behind your neck I would think that is more like your body reacting to something......lots of sensitive psychic types get a certain tingle in a specific part of the body that is telling them either YES....or NO....to whateer the topic is.....they are known as body signals....could be your just experiencing body signals on the back of your neck...?

If you get the sensation everywhere you go than yeah go get yourself checked out for morgellons disease. If you only get the sensations in certain parts of the house and you have reason to believe that the house is haunted than it could be a ghost. people who experience ectoplasm ay that contact with a ghost will often feel like you have walked through a few strands of a spiders web.

so this means that YOU are well informed on the subject?

Your advice is that he goes to the dermatologist so that they will diagnose him with DOP? Delusions of Parasitosis?

They will roll their eyes at you.. just a warning.

"get CHECKED OUT for morgellons disease????"

are you freaking kidding?

do you people know ANYTHING of the horror sufferers have to deal with... not just the disease.. I'm talking about the abuse by the medical community of being mocked at every turn... you have no idea what you people are talking about.
research yourself.. some more.
this is the caveat.. this is the issue.. people being called delusional for this..

This is what happens to virtually ALL people that complain about these symptoms to doctors.. PARTICULARLY dermatologists.

So, Original Poster unless you want that on your record, I'd think twice about it.

Yeah for insurance purposes, I would think twice about it too. Its not like the doc is going to diagnose Morgellons and fix it, but there could be a downside to the a doctors visit.

I'm still going to the doctor but I've decided not to mention anything about Morgellons. I realize the raised eyebrows I'd get and wouldn't be taken very seriously. I just want to get his opinion on the stinging sensations and what the lesions could have possibly been. I wish I would have taken pictures on my last outbreak to document it.

I'm most likely falling on that scenario for the unexplained web sensations. Me and my family have had many paranormal experiences in this house. In fact, I had a paranormal experience in this very room that prompted me to join ATS to seek help.

Although the majority of the web sensations happen in my house, it sometimes happens when I'm riding my bike. And I'm not talking about when I'm trailriding, it happens when I'm on the road are other places where it would be impsossible for a web to be.

I appreciate the replies guys



Edit: Just after I posted this post, crawling sensations in my shoulders started... still ongoing as I type this... can you say freaky..

I've heard of this experience before. The brain doesn't only process information it receives from nerves in the skin, it can also reverse the flow of experience, so to speak, and reproduce sensations that it has felt before, using the skin somewhat like a cinema screen, but for the sensation of touch.



I'm still going to the doctor but I've decided not to mention anything about Morgellons. I realize the raised eyebrows I'd get and wouldn't be taken very seriously.


In a lot of cases, doctors only treat things that they can write a prescription for - the rest are denied to exist. A classic example would be Myalgic Encephalomyelitis which was stricken from the list of World Health Organisation diseases because insurance companies found it too expensive to support, and the drugs uneconomical for pharma to produce.
The result was M.E. is denied to exist. Doctors now say anyone presenting with M.E. has chronic fatigue syndrome.
Have you considered a qualified naturopath? In most cases, a lettered naturopath has studied longer to practice naturopathy than a medical specialist.

I am not sure if it fits in this thread or not, but since it is skin and nervous system based.........

Has anyone noticed an increase of people with tiny blister rashes, those like people at times get around thier fingers and they say it is from nerves?

I work with someone who has blister rash on his arm and a friend also works with someone with a patch of those blisters. I have a few around my fingers and has one on my arm and the one on my arm bleed for like ever when I messed with it.

Also numbness in hands and feet seems to be prevailant these days.

OP, Ben..........

I am a bit concerned for you that you are having breakouts and also have the sensations you describe, please let us know what the doc tells you and do post any pics when you have an occurance.

Do you actually feel that all spiders should die any death?
