I feel like my skin is crawling at night when I sleep, I have never had bed bugs, is it possible I have them now and how did I get them?

What else could it be, my mattress is Temperpedic.

If you have bed bugs you would have bites and be able to see the bugs. They are the size of apple seeds. It could be restless nerves. I get that sometimes. But if you are worried about bugs of some kind you can take your sheets and mattress pad off and wash them in hot water. Also vacuum your bed, and under it.

I do that and I use this spray on my mattress and sheets every time I change the liniens , which is 3xs a week.

Plus it wakes me up; I feel something similar to a pin prick.

You should talk to your doctor. That sounds like over active nerves.

It might be bed bugs. Or if you're outside in the grass some bugs could've crawled on you. I'm not sure how you get bed bugs, but I'm pretty sure it would gross you out if I knew.

Bed bugs can also be carried on clothes, seats and different fabrics used often by humans. In that case you can catch them from being other places or around other people who have them.

Are you on any type of painkillers? When it wears off it makes your skin 'feel' like its crawling.
