I am in the process of finding a new internist, someone who is capable of handling a very complicated case, mine in this case.
By doing as much research as possible on my symptoms, I came across a possible cause of my UNBARABLE ITCHING!!! MS?!!!
I am also going to require a new neurologist as my disability is based on such problems BUT READING THAT MS AND ITCHINESS CAN BE RELATED WILL BE INCREDIBLY HELPFUL FOR ME TO PASS ALONG!!
Twenty years I was given all sorts of tests, painful and not and got "3 out of 5 orange spots" being told that 3 means maybe MS down the line and 5 "for sure." I wasn't at all satisifed and the neurologist just dropped out!?!
Now, with my increasing weakness and other neuro problems the itching I have developed, almost out of the blue 8 weeks ago is incredible!!! It has almost immobilized me and has had me in tears!!! This could be a blessing in disguise in getting the pieces of the puzzle into one frame!!?!!
Please respond if itching has been a part of your journey.
Itching has been an issue of mine that thankfully has gone away. It came and went mysteriously, but for a year and a half, it was an itchy area on my scalp that was exacerbated by warm water in the shower. I didn't do anything for it - it was usually relieved when I got out of the shower.
Good luck with your path in finding a diagnosis - keep us posted.
Hi, I had the same problem. I also had it, on the front of my legs, especially in the bath tub. If I started to scratch, I literally could not stop. It felt SOOOOO good, at first, until I started to get horrible marks on my legs, and spots of blood.
I did take an antihistamine... and it seemed to help, maybe talk to your Dr. about it... maybe there is something for you.
