so my problem is this: i feel like there are bugs crawling all over my skin. this has been going on for the past several days. i suppose it's possible that there actually ARE bugs crawling on my skin, but the thing is, i live in very close quarters with a bunch of other people and none of them feel itchy or anything.
a few details, to supplement:
-i have recently weaned myself off of Effexor XR. i still get the "brain shocks" sometimes but i think i'm pretty much past the bulk of the withdrawal.
-i smoke quite a bit of marijuana, and have since around september of last year. i pretty much function as usual after smoking though.
-i have been dxed at different times with bipolar, schizoaffective, borderline, social anxiety, and psychotic disorder nos
i've been having a lot of confusion and feelings that i'm "going crazy" lately too. i used to have visual illusions (peoples faces would look weird, etc) but i don't think this bug thing has come up quite like this before.
any ideas about what i should attribute this feeling to, and what i should do about it?
should i see a general doctor or a psych doc?
thanks for the help...
