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

Posted by Patrick Cotter @patrickcotter, Mar 19, 2012

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.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Skin Health group.

I think all the drugs mentioned are part of the same family. if one is not working then try another. Also google the difference, eg, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AMITRIPTYLINE AND THE DRUG YOU ARE TAKING ? IT WILL TELL YOU. I have great relief with amitriptyline but most importantly KEEP KEEP moisturising I also find (don’t laugh) Vick’s vapor rub a great relief and ALOE VERA PROPOLIS IT’S SOLD WORLD WIDE. The PRoduct is made By
“FOREVER LIVING” you may need to ice sometimes but 85% less than before. One last tip, as BRP is light Senitive ware long sleeves even in bed or keep arms under sheet. Good luck

Thanks……I already did google all those drugs but was wondering how other people responded to them. I should have worded that better. And yes, I have read about staying moisturized and also out of the sun. I just bought some fresh aloe – so I have the actual leaf in my fridge and get it directly from the plant. I found that most of the aloe products out there are mixed with so much other stuff, but will look into the product you mentioned.

Most importantly, I am trying to rule out any type of spinal issue before resort to drugs – so my doc ordered nerve conduction studies this week after reading about the severe stenosis and foramina narrowing at my C4,5 and 6. In the meantime, I am experimenting with CBD and finally a significant amount of relief, not completely yet, but i have only been on it for three days so far.

Some years ago I cleared up my brachioradial pruitus COMPLETELY by taking MSM powder in grapefruit juice. Start with a heaping teaspoon a day…first thing on an empty stomach…and gradually increase to 4 heaped teaspoons a day…about 20 grams…morning and night. Best to dissolve in a little warm water then add grapefruit or tomato juice to disguise the bitter flavor. BP has recently come back after about two years of being free…probably stress, so I’m doing it again and it’s working again!

Also you can add two cups to your bath for an overall skin boost…it absorbs well through the skin! Soak for awhile of course! I buy in bulk from a horse company…99.9% pure MSM and much cheaper! I think the company is called “Mane and Tail”

Read up on MSM…so good for you and NATURAL!

I agree with the mail from “Relentless”
There is no cure but we can help ourselves to live with it.

What a wonderful gesture. I have a new diagnose. Acute encephalopathy, thats the shrinking cerebellum. I had a seizure and fell broke my right ankle for the 2nd time. Doctors had a fit with all the fractures both ankles. Physical therapy are crazy here in rehab, told them I won't do it. They want me to jump on left foot( left ankle which for 10 years is swollen), with a hospital walker, I would kill myself, no way to. Told them no. I am going home..

My family Dr said the encephalopathy is temporary, due from major shock as in breaking right ankle. Surgeon says break agaIn, will never walk again. I moisturized for years at least 15, never worked. I now know that was not the reason. I have severe narrowing my whole length of spine, spinal stenosis, bulging discs. Many issues with back besides scoliosis. Lottery of diseases in my family.

Good luck with ur tests, I am also going to try CBD. Just to let u know I never found the aloe from the plant helped me but the aloe mixed with propolis really helped a lot. The propolis (you may know this) acts as an antibiotic inside a bee hive – it’s very precious and “Forever Living” only use very pure ingredients. you will have to google the above but I think they are world wide and well worth a try.

The is so much! I do know the propolis provides additional support but not that it functioned as an antiobiotic.

Sorry, I did not explain it well. Propolis acts like an antibiotic to the bees,as it lines the hive to protect them.

I also have RA but I don't think it is connected. I think it was too much sun.

I am wondering if RA and other conditions too, might set up a hypersensitivity of the nerves when exposed to too much sun?
