comment Why Do Nerve Signals Get Crossed?
@Armatus I've only observed it happening when there is a random itch, but no prior itching, but not all itches have it happen. That's why it is so rare, I've only experienced it around two dozen times in the past ~15yrs. I'm 23, I'm assuming it may have happened when I was younger, but I never thought much of it since was just a kid.

comment Why Do Nerve Signals Get Crossed?
@Armatus well the last time it happened I got an itch on the back of my arm and scratched it only to feel the scratching on my lower back. I don't recall which body axis they were at, I'll have to note that next time it happens, but it's rare. No, it does not occur on skin that was itching before.

comment Why Do Nerve Signals Get Crossed?
@terdon: Thanks for the links, but interesting as they are they don't answer why the touch signals get crossed =o(. Irregardless if it is an itch or another form of touch, the brain should not be interpreting a touch on one part of the body as coming from another part. My question is why this mixup occurs and how the brain is incorrectly processing it.

Thanks for the response. It was very difficult choosing who to accept, so opted to just choose the highest voted one. If I could choose multiple answer I would have chosen yours as well. I did upvote!
