I have had the same itch for 27 years. It comes and goes, sometimes ongoing for many days, months, years @ a time. Most always at bedtime or when I start t o relax. I have been awakened by it lots and lots of times. I have even put scalding hot wet towels on my arm(s) to stop the itch. The pain is much more bearable. Ice is a nightly bedtime companion for me.
