Brachioradial Pruritus

Posted by laisseraler @laisseraler, Tue, Oct 8 1:59pm

I have had this problem for 3 months now, it is driving me crazy, itching day and night no sleep because of constant itching, scabbing, bleeding from me scratching my arms from my elbows to my wrists. Kaiser has been treating it like an rash? with creams that never work? their spine clinic refuses to look at my spine as part of the cause?

Hi I just had an injection on my neck to relieve the burning and itching due to brachioradial puritius. I'm not sure if it will help but at this point it's all I have left. I suffer from this disease and it has taken me years to finally get an MRI to determine I have severe spinal stenosis and severe degenerative disc disease. Don't give up hope I will let you know if this steroid injection helps or if I will need to continue to treat the disease with ICE PACKS

I am going to keep you in my prayers.

I am seeing Kaiser, their spine doctor never heard of this condition? I am not diagnosed with anything? she ordered physical therapy?

For lorifig1965 :
how did you get your doctor to order the injections? where are you located? is that a Kaiser doctor?

I had my doctor give me a referral to shands spine clinic but first she ordered the MRI and then I took the results to the spine specialists and the read the results and gave me an appointment for a steroid injection so far so good no burning or itch last night.

Is there anyone experiencing burning and itching on their forearms and ice packs are the only relief?

Hi, @lorifig1965 – Wanted to let you know that I've moved your post here to this existing discussion on brachioradial pruritis so that all the conversations on this topic can be in one place. Hoping that @guga @laisseraler will have some thoughts to share on whether they find ice packs to be their only relief from forearm burning and itching.

Has the injection provided relief continuing into today, lorifig1965?

It's 4am I've been up all night with burning and itching so NO the injection has not helped at all.

Does anyone know of a doctor in the U.S. that has heard of it dealt with brachioradial puritius? I will travel I can't take the burning itch any longer. Any advice will help.
