Thank you very much for your reply.
The ant crawling sensations are called paraesthesias. These are due to nerve hypersensitivity which can happen due to neuralgia or nerve inflammation or even Vitamin B 12 deficiency.
A thorough blood work up and electromyography and nerve studies will give you a clue as to the cause of the ant crawling sensation.
There are a number of prescription medications that help in this condition.
Please do get back to me in case of any further queries.
