I know there are a few other topics like this.
And i have read many comments, posts and replys relating to this same situation. But I have to say none of them were exactly 100% relatable to mine.
I saw that there was a diagnosis quiz on here, None of the possible diagnosis's? fit me. I am constantly looking for answers with every new symptom. You have no idea how desperate I am.
No, its isn't Hodgkin's- i have no swollen lymph nodes. It isn't Cholinergic Urticaria(even though it is a VERY close match)- I have no sign of a rash.
MY SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:
Extreme Painful Unbrearable Itching
Occures When I try to Excersize, Wear close/tight fitting/warm clothing, drink hot bevrages, take hot showers, whenever i swear, blush, get angry, etc.
Itching occurs ALL OVER-literally
I itch even at rest all over painfully but its not as intense and its only little pinches every few seconds
When Heatwave of itching occures my whole body gets hot and its hard to breathe or to cool down, i get dizzy, weak, and sometimes feel like im going to faint

I have a history of hives. So i know this isnt a rash. i am allergive to heat, i think. All summer i broke out in hives when i went out in the sun, and sometimes i got hives when i broke a sweat after excersering??? I dont know whats wrong with me. But this is a different case. Its winter now.
This occured Randomly. 4 months ago, a little after i started school at cosmetology, i FINALLY got out of the hospital for a 1 week VEG testing for my seizures. i was so glad to get out the hospital, the first thing i wanted to do was run, so i went to the gym. i was on the machine and i just broke out in itching. I looked down at my hands freaking out to see if i was gettting hives but i wasn't. i tried to keep going and before i new it i was literally on the floor in pain, almost crying in agony and tring to itch every inch of myself. I hurried home but not to fast because the more heat i gave off the worse it itched.my mother rubbed benydril all over me. and im a determined person. i wanted to lose the weight i gained from laying in bed and being confined in the hospital for a week. so i went right back to the gym (its part of our townhouse complex). It didnt work at all. I dont know why my mom thought it would. Benydril is for allergys right? RASHES. i dont have a rash.
I think i have a virus to be honest.
Something in my blood stream. Like HIV and im afraid ill have it forever. Im even more afraid because no one else seems to have anything like this so how could i possibly be vaccinated. Who would have a vaccination for something that only one person in the world has. i cant live like this.
Im going to be a cosmetologist, i cant cut peoples hair if im itching every second. This needs to be cured, fast.
Anyone, someone.
I beg you. If you know anything PLEASE, Tell me what you know. I can not live like this.
At school when i work to hard i end up having to rush to the bathroom, lock the door, strip down and itch for 10minutes til my heat wave is gone but ill still be itching painfully for a good few hours afterward. the itching never does stop.

  • It is probably some kind of infection. You should get a doctor to do tests for any infections which may cause this.For example, a golden staph skin infection can cause itching, without changing the appearance of the skin. It can infect the skin over most of the body. Warning: It can get much worse if not treated. This is only one possibility. There are many others.You may have difficulty with doctors. You know something is wrong, but to a doctor you may look like nothing is wrong, so they may not take you seriously. Insist on tests for any possible infections.

  • You might want to have your doctor check you for Lupus. The same thing has been happening to me for years and I was recently diagnosed with Lupus. The steriods (which are used for treatment) may help. Hope you get answers.
