Diagnose me, haha.

I know you guys can't diagnose me (doctor? is there a doctor in the house?) but I figured I would give it a shot and maybe someone else has experienced this.

I get intense itching that comes in waves. No rash, nothing that has changed that my skin would react to... just all over itching. This kept me up until 6am, I was not amused. On top of the itching my hands felt like they were on FIRE. I had to keep running them under cold water.

My daughter keeps nagging me to go to the doctor. I don't think it's a medical emergency, but the itching does get annoying. There's no bites or rash though so what can I show a doctor? Nothing really. Except the scratch marks.

Have you ever had this happen to you?

    I get itchy sometimes but not all over. Strange. Is itchiness a condition associated with Fibromyalgia?

    Hmmm....I have no idea then. Has this just started? Or has it been going on for a while?

    What about what you've been eating? Anything different lately or the same as the last bout of itchiness?

        Benadryl did not make it stop. It did knock me out though, so there was that!

        I hadn't been stressed out, but it was right before a big exam. So I was nervous about that for sure. Otherwise I hadn't been stressed out at all.

        I was honestly wondering if it was nerves though. I have been having issues with my ulnar nerve (my pinky's have been numb feeling) but I didn't think that would cause the other issues.

          I personally have no idea what could cause this. I would call a nurse line at the hospital/doctor office and talk to the nurse about it. If you can wait you can talk to your child's pediatrician about your condition when you take your child to their next appointment. A pediatrician is a general practice doctor with a specialty focus on children, just two more years of additional study to get the specialty. I would also visit my chiropractor. When the spine is out of alignment the body can do lots of strange things. For me lately I've had two toes on each foot go numb and this is caused by the spine pinching a nerve. The chiropractor visits have been helping. Good luck!
