Have been involuntarily scratching head leading to blood. Reason?

Hi. For the past few days I ve been involuntarily scratching the back of my head at night. I ve tried binding my hands together and binding them to my bed, but my hands always manage to free themselves and continue scratching. What s funny is that I never scratch myself awake; I can only tell by the blood on the back of my gauze pad.
