Numbness, Tingling and Itching

I have been having numbness and tingling along with itching on my upper back for years.  I was told it's something called Notalgia Paresthetica.  I also get shooting (nerve pain) alot in the area under my left breast kind of between the ribs.  Nerve blocks and radio frequency ablation haven't helped.  I looked at an MRI report of my cervical and thoracic spine.  Apparently I have herniation of C4-C5 and C6-C7.  The thoracic area shows some dessication (desiccation).  My question is could my symptoms be caused from the cervical herniations?  Where do I go from here?  Also, of note, lidoderm patches don't really help the itching problem which is driving me crazy!  Should I see a neurologist?  Might surgery help to correct these problems?
