I'm trying not to be paranoid here...

I've had lower back flank pain (ride side) for about 6 weeks. A few days ago it got worse, so I went to the doc. She felt it was muscle strain, because my urinalysis can back "100% clean" and she ruled out UTI.

On Thursday morning, my feet started to itch. I didn't think too much about it until that night, when my hands started to itch as well. It's not a normal itch though, it's inside my body, it's not my skin that itches. The itch has come and gone, sometimes it's my legs, or forearms. Right now it's my feet, and it's so bad, I have one of those 3 pronged muscle massagers on my feet so I stop itching. On a scale of 1-10, I'm going to say the itch is now at an 8.

The back pain got really bad tonight, however, if it is truly a muscle strain, then I could have aggravated it from activity today.

The reason for my concern, is my sister had itchiness while she was pregnant, and it turned out the baby was poisoning her liver. So, with the flank pain, and the itches... comes my paranoia...

The only medical thing I've had recently is an infected finger, in early May, and had one of those mega antibiotic shots.

Any words of advice are welcome. Thank you in advance :)
