The "bug crawling" symptom is a classic flare symptom from small muscle twitching. Dry or itchy skin is a symptom of inflammation. When the kidneys become inflamed, the skin responds as the back-up blood purification system - forcing uric acid onto the skin, causing the irritation. Patients with kidney failure can see yellow crystals (dried uric) on their skin.

Ditto here, I get itch so bad I take Benadryl once in a while (Diphenhydramine) to help with the ich, I get into hot water I feel like ripping my skin off it itches so badly!! It calms down but does anyone get the itch on sides of feet too? I also get it from coming in from the cold outdoors to indoors temp changes.

Yes, including the palms of my hands and bottoms of my feet.  I thought I was simply going crazy.  I have to put lotion on a few times a day because it feels like a dry skin itch, but I'm not dry.  I also notice that every little wrinkle, whether it be in my bedding or my clothing, bothers me no matter the time of the month.  Anyone else have that problem?

Me too!  I had a test for reynauds and it was negative, still get the blotchy painful and itchy hands though. But I get itchy at the base of my spine too.The itch always feels like it's deep inside so scratching never helps.  :-)
