Since I was a teenager I've had poor circulation with itching. It would happen when I stood in one spot and occasionally my feet would start itching.
The quick cure was to sit/lay down and elevate my feet. A few times the cure was not quick, however it always worked. Sometimes my feet would throb if I didn't catch it quick enough.
I've always had low blood pressure.
In the past few days this itching as become acute! My feet itch while I'm sitting, my hands and arms start itching through out the day, and the bottoms of my feet when I stand. Sometimes even my ears.
When I lay down I need to elevate my feet, and the itching still takes a while to subside.
A second symptom in the last few days is very dry skin. I've been slathering on the lotion several times a day. I'm drinking more water due to the dry conditions.
Perhaps the combination of the two symptoms are what's driving me crazy, however, lotion doesn't always help nor does elevating my extremities or both.
Any suggestions folks?
