So it all started off with a blood test for the numbness, burning, tingling in my left leg. All my blood count came back normal except iron which was borderline and Vitamin D. On finding out I was Vitamin D deficient I decided to sit out in my back garden in the blazing heat for a good 30 minutes. Later on that evening I started feeling itchy all over my body including scalp, nose, nose, private areas...everywhere. It was accompanied by a burning sensation in my lower back. I ignored it for a few days thinking it will go away. But it didn'the. I was advised to take anti histamines like Clarityn/Piriton which had little effect.
During the same time I was given Vitamin D tablets at 10,000 iu. My levels were low at just 22. I began taking the tablets but the itching continued. I went back to my GP and was given a stronger dose of antihistamines 'Fexofenadine' which has not really helped. The itching is mainly on the face now. It's like a small twitch which forces me to lightly scratch that area and then it happens in another side of my face. This continues the whole day. It's exhausting to say the least.
I have no idea why this itching has come on just like that just by sitting in the sun, I don't really expose my skin to the sun often. There's no rash, hives or eczema situation. Could the Vitamin D from the sun or the tablets have caused this itching. It's really disturbing my life and I feel helpless.
