Brachioradial pruritus. (severe itching on forearms and neck, no rash).

Does anyone know of this. I think its rare but does exist. My neurologist does not know about this. I have compression between my c5 and c6 cervical disk and have had alot of sun damage to my skin.

Hello, I have this exact diagnosis - same everything, no rash, severe SEVERE itching on forearm(left only) issues with my neck, and sun damage. I want to find out all I can regarding this - I am going INSANE with the itching. Only thing so far that TEMPORARILY takes the itch away is ICE.....

I have had this condition for about a year. My Dr. has me on Gabapentin and it does work. I am trying to get off it. I am down to two pills a day instead of 3.
I would like to try Chiropractic. Has anyone else tried it with any success. It is hard to find a Chiropractor that knows anything about BRP.

Welcome to Connect, @cropsey26
I moved your message to this existing discussion where you can read messages from @donnany @castlemac and @patrickcotter. While they haven't been on Connect for a long time, I'm hoping that someone will return to share their experiences with you. In the meantime, here is some information about the condition from Mayo Clinic, including treatment options.
- Itchy skin (pruritus)

Cropsey, have you had any prescribed treatment?
