I’m so happy to hear from you salemm72. Glad to hear of your remedies like Stopain!….that’s a new one for me. My dermatologist also recommended capasain which I never personally found helpful. Irritated skin even more.
Yesterday I had a second cervical epidural. Believe it or not, I’ve not itched all day!! Now that could be from the anesthesia, we’ll see. I hope your idea of a alignment works for you. Makes sense that it might help. My xrays clearly showed cervical spine arthritis so the impingement clearly was there causing the BRP.
Good luck in your search for relief. Some people can’t understand the horrible discomfort this condition causes….and I think discomfort is a mild description for it. It makes me NUTS!!!!

Hello, I have suffered from this condition for over 2 years, and it is ruining my life! I have tried many medications, acupuncture, chiropractors, dermatologists, neurologists and even doctors who have told me it is all in my head! Lyrica and Cymbalta mostly keep it at bay, but every so often it flares up, and then I need to basically shut down. I could do that with Benadryl, ice packs and an occasional glass of wine and cancelling whatever plans or work I had to do. Unfortunately, I have plateaued out on Benadryl, so all I can depend on are my ice packs. I am at my wits end! I live near Boston, home of some of the best hospitals in the world – you'd think they would be able to help me! I'd be happy to hear from anyone. Mannix
