Scott, what did you learn from your appointment with the neurologist?
Sunbird, is this the first that you've learned about brachioradial pruritus? You mention that you've self-diagnosed. Have you suggested the diagnosis to a doctor?

I plan to, when I'm able, to see my Neuroligist. I have a feeling that nothing will really help, unless I have PT or surgery, on my neck. It is not constant itching all of the time. If I felt this itch all of the time. I'd probably be living in a padded cell!!
I have used ice packs on my arms when I get a breakout. I do have cervical neck issues as well. When I get a breakout of BP, I tend to crave Thai foods or any foods with curry. The Capsazion helps a bit, but putting ICE packs on my arms gives me the best short term relief. I have also used BIOFREEZE to mimic the cooling effect and that helps when I am unable to put ice packs on my arms!
