What is the cause of deep muscle itching?

I have been experiencing itching deep within my muscles and have no idea why.


Answer by  techno (95)

Overwork, fatigue and injuries are most common reasons of deep muscle itching. It can also be caused by an increased level of uric acid. Infection by virus, mild temperature and flu can also cause deep muscle itching. This is an indication of some other problem; doctor is the right person to be consulted.

There are various causes for this. You might have given overstrain to your muscles contineously during preceding days. If some heavy articles are lifted, you may feel muscular pain and discomfort. It may be due to some viral fevel, if you fel slight temperature. Check your temperature and confirm it. However, if the problem persists, better consult an orthopaedic surgeon.

I"m experiencing the same itching in my trap muscle. Left side. And you're right. Doc just blows it off. I find ice and tea tree oil, as well as peppermint oil offers some relief. I take hydroxyzine hcl 25mg, but it makes me sooooo sleepy.

I have heard that this can be a result of toxins in the muscle from some sort of chemical exposure. The doctors don't seem to be able to see this or test for it, therefore they don't believe the person reporting it.
