Hi. For the last week or so I've had an extreme itch mostly on my chest area (sometimes my neck, behind my ears). It comes and goes but the itch is driving me crazy! Sometimes it burns and is sensitive to the touch. I also have been getting stomach pains. I'm not sure this is related or not. I'm wondering if I'm allergic to something I'm eating or putting on? (Lotion, etc. I very rarely use perfume). I haven't tried anything new to my knowledge. My doctor wanted me to try an acid blocker because I had been having chest pain. I told him I didn't think I had Acid Reflux. I think it was more anxiety related.I have been under more stress this last year. Could the stomach pains be from the acid blocker? The other night I had spaghetti for dinner and I was doubled over the rest of the night. I had never had that kind of reaction before. Could I be getting food allergies all of a sudden?
Your thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
