Feeling of crawling on the back and chest. Wiggling of the toes, tightness in the jaw. Any suggestions?

Lately I have been experiencing the feeling of something crawling across my upper back area (near the nape of my neck) also the chest area. I also have a dull pain on the upper left side of chest that seems to come late in the evening near bedtime. I also can't stop my toes from wiggling (especially the first two on each foot). There is a weird feeling at the front left side of my throat and a tightness in both lower jaw area near the bottom of the ears. What is going on with me?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Crawling sensation (commonly, paraesthesia) can be seen in numerous conditions, nerve compressions, damage, neuropathies, other neurological conditions, metabolic conditions etc. A neurologist will be able to evaluate you in detail.
Inability to stop wiggling toes of both feet, if not involuntary, if under your will, is most likely psychological. Stress or anxiety can cause a constant feeling or necessity to do so.
If involuntary, again, it may have a neurological basis.
The symptoms that you report are quite vague. Rule out or confirm a neurological basis first. If required you may visit a psychiatrist.
Hope this helps,
