Pin prick pinches on skin, What could be this?

Hi I m really upset and people think I m crazy. I am feeling pinches on my skin and when I look there s a pin prick that then goes brown. I m very emotional right now because no one can give me an answer. Is there a skin condition that can cause this? It doesn t make sense to me. If I wasn t feeling a prick and seeing visible signs following the prick I d think I was imagining it.
