I am relieved to know I am not alone....8 years ago I had the "arm itch" but put it down to menopause. I saw my family doctor who prescribed creams (no help) referred me to a Dermatologist (no help) had physio on my spine (no help) had a test where they put pins along your arm to check nerve responses (nothing wrong), tried Ativan (no help). After 6 months it just disappeared so I was sure it was due to menopause which was also occuring at that time. It is now 8 years later and the "arm itch" is back (no rash), sometimes upper arm, sometimes elbow area, sometimes lower arm. Menopause is long gone, so now what??? Any ideas??
