...there's a lot of it about. I might have picked something up from a client. I started itching on my shoulders, nothing to show but where I'd scratched. I then had severe stomach pain one night. MRI scan results awaiting but blood and other scans clear. Have not had this since. Now itching has worsened. Like burning and pricking in particular spots. Like something is crawling under my skin and eating me from inside, and burrowing into nerves. Tingly in fingers. Comes out in small blister-like bumps. Or white peeling skin. Looks like bites but bruises as well. All down arms mainly, also stomach, chest and back, not so much legs. Dr says not scabies or hives, not bed bugs, though husband says he has a few bites. My client told me she had scabies about the same time my back itched. Three months later she said it was something else because she still has it. I know it isn't sex related, having abstained for 7 years. But I seem to have had a change of character somehow. Could be menopause, but difficult to say as I've always had problems. Anyone any ideas??
