I have had itching all over my body since last March. It started after a bout with stomach issues terrible Stomach cramps after I eat, then diarrhea, nausea, then the itching & sores on my arms. It seems the itch stopped when the pain stopped, then I had 2 other bout with the stomach cramps & itching. I have multiple blood test, CT, x-rays, endoscopy upper, colonoscopy & next week I go for a gastric emptying test. My skin is now itching day& every night can't sleep. I have had enough of it, last year they told me I had a hiatal hernia, after this upper endoscopy they told me I have Barrett's esophagus. I am tried every cream on the market nothing works....

@trisha10, I cannot imagine what you are going through. You have mentioned lots of tests. Do you have any idea of what they are looking for? Or what they are trying to eliminate as possibilities? I had to look up Barrett's Esophagus because I am not familiar with it. Barrett's esophagus - https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/barretts-esophagus/symptoms-causes/syc-20352841

What kind of doctor is ordering these tests? Is he/she doing any follow-ups with you?
While you are undergoing this testing. I strongly encourage you to talk to him/her about the itching.

Trisha, Will you tell me what you learn from the gastric emptying test?

@trisha10 I am sorry to hear all you are going through. I know how frustrating it is to not know what is wrong with you. Do they think some of these symptoms are related to Barrett's or that they are just co-existing? I have had Barrett's for about 6 or 7 years now but my only symptom is that I am hoarse at times. I take 20mg of omeprazole a day for that. Interestingly, I never had GERD or an inordinate amount of heartburn.
