WOW! I can't beleive there are so many of us that suffer from this, and yet doctors have no idea what we are talking about. I have suffered on and off for years, as well as my mom. I have also met two other people who have it too. Same symptoms...EXTREME itching (to the point where the thought of just cutting off your arms sounds better) it gets worse at night, and ice seams to be the only real help. I take an antihistime as soon as it starts and it helps a little.
If anyone ever finds a cure....PLEASE pass it on. I am soooo tired of living like this!!!
