    RE: unbearable itching

    Hi there. It says here ( http://wb.md/2nrf8aX) that no two people have exactly the same symptoms. The article also says that people with MS might experience unusual sensations such as numbness, itching, burning, stabbing, or tearing pains. Fortunately, these symptoms can be managed or treated.

    Have you spoken to your doctor? This is clearly a problem for you and you deserve to have it recognized and receive treatment so you can get some relief.

    Let us know how you're doing

    RE: unbearable itching

    Hi, I have that sensitivity, too, along with many other weird sensations. Itching, burning, and bruise-like pain are my main ones. I moisturize with hydrocortisone cream that helps minimize itching from dry skin/eczema, but because the underlying cause is mostly neuropathic, topical remedies don't help me all that much. Thanks for your question. I hope others will share their experiences, too.

    RE: unbearable itching

    it is unreal! I feel the same way, but my doc says it is a symptom of polycythemuia vera. and that it comes from too many white blood cells and a high hematocrit. But I also have mULTIPLE FOOD AND ENVIRONMENTAL sensitivities (some say they are allergies); then other docs said I have psoriatic psoriasis a kind of connective tissue arthritis, No one doc seems to have one definitive answer. All continue to monitor my conditions and take my hard earned savings.
    I also have had a heart attack at age 37 and a stroke 20 years later. One blamed it on my asthma and I am quite sensitive to changes in the weather. The only peculiar thing hat started recently is while sitting or standing and maybe just peeling carrots or potatoes for example, and I suddenly start gasping to breathe. Could I be getting back an old anxiety disorder? I also have 10 spinal discs which were herniated, ruptured and now dry and they call that degenerative disc disease. That leaves crown's disease and the fact that I had cancer of the prostate removed and my thyroid and parathyroid glands were removed also due to cancer. Then there is my sleep apnea. Can there be anything else? It makes me worry; too much.
