Hi. I have had intense itching on my upper and lower arms on and off since 1997. This pruritic condition has been non-responsive to antihistamine's oral or topical. I have suffered from tense shoulders (they have knots in them) I guess from stress, bad posture, etc. for what seems like forever now. I once woke up and my neck went out so bad that when I saw a chiropractor for an x-ray she asked if I had been involved in an auto accident (I hadn't). Anyway, I notice that when my husband works on the knotted areas in my shoulders I don't wake up nearly as frequently during the night with this itching on my arms. (The itching awakens me normally at about 1:00 a.m. and then about every 2 hours or so after that).
By the way, my arms do not have a rash, lesions or any other apparent abnormal dermal conditions. Could this itching be caused by muscles and nerves triggering in my shoulders and transferring down my arms? Please let me know if you have ever seen such a case/condition as this would be a great relief to know I am finally on the right track!
Thank you so very much for your time.
