Hello, Welcome to Just answer! I would like to get more information so that I can address your concern appropriately.
Is she having fever, nausea, jaundice, pain abdomen or any other symptoms?
Nothing like that - just itching and fatigue.
Any confusion, headache, neck stiffness?
Is she still on any medication?
Sleeping through clock alarms and slight confusion.
No, she stopped the medicine yesterday.
How is her BP and heartburn?
She has remained calm, maybe a bit weak and shaky. She pops "tums" (calcium tablets) if she gets the heartburn.
Thank you for the information. Although she has few symptoms, but are not that alarming. I am little concerned about her confusion, if you think this is getting worse then she certainly needs evaluation. At this time, she is showing generalized itching which could be due to allergic reaction to systemic disease.
What is systemic disease?
If she developed itching after stopping meds, then it may not be related to it.
Diseases such as kidney problem, liver problem, hormonal problem
If you think she is very weak and sleepy, confuse, then it is better to have her evaluated in ER.
So you're saying it is an allergic reaction to her meds. She was taking them daily since October and for the past 15-16 years. The itching started suddenly, in the night, two weeks ago. In fact, she was urinating a little bit in her sleep. That lasted three days then stopped and she's urinating regularly.
If she developed itching during medication use, then it can be due to medication side effects or liver problem.
In this setting, I would certainly consider liver function test which may cause generalized itching.
