I too have thought of suicide because of this awful itching..I know deep in my soul I cannot do that but I don’t want to live with this the rest of my life..I have been to several drs and get new creams but nothing helps but the ice pack I take with me everywhere. I have just made an appointment with a chiropractor that specializes in the neck region of the spine and hope to get some relief

@screamingmeanie, Hello. Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I’m so sorry you feel this way. It must be awful. I’m glad you have found a place here among others that also suffer with the same symptoms to know that you are not alone.

Have you seen a chiropractor before for brachioradial pruritus? Please keep us updated with what they offer to you- it may be something that will help someone else as well.

Well to add my two cents..once again…..I’m on my third Chiropractor. He believes it is a mold issue. I have to laugh…This one practices that Atlas technique reported by some to cure…Well big surprise no cure here. Cause there is none. The first order of business I think is patients not having to Educate there doctors that this is a definite condition not all in your head. My primary doctor suggested a trip to a shrink…lol Well my shrink laughs…she see’s my arms and my suffering…. Gave her the study’s . Dr’s seem to get offended when you know more than they do Pompous idiots most.

What is “atlas technique”?

Atlas is a disc cervical the belief is once again if properly alighned can correct many issues one person posted thiis worked for him alas not for nothing works for me
