Customer Question
I have had severe...

I have had severe burning & itching on my legs & arms for 2 yrs.. I cant live like this the pain is so intense.. also I cant put water on my body except to wash my hair & quickly wash my hair & hands after going to the toilet.. the pain is unbearable.. I took 4 lyrica & 10 antihistamines a few days ago because I was so desperate for a shower or bath having not had one for 8 wks.. I try oil bathing but that makes me itchy too.. I have tried everything possible on my skin but everything burns it.. I have been going to a skin doctor with no results & a neuroscience dr who ruled out MS but neoither has helped me.. after taking all those tablet an hour before my shower(it makes no difference if I bath or shower or if its rainwater or townwater) after getting out of the shower the pain from burning & stinging was so intense that I screamed for 3 hours then moaned & half screamed for ano;ther hour, after putting 3 4 kg bags of ice on my legs as that is the only thing that stops it. that is what the hospital does everytime for me. I passed out at my GP because of it but they called the ambulance as my blood pressure was in the 200's.. this was around 2 yr ago & no none has done a bloody thing to help me. I am willing to travel to see the best doctor in the world to treat me.. please help me I cant take it any more

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No if I seat I get worse.. I am aware of the drying effects of air con so I try to have a humidifier on sometimes

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
