I've been going through a rough patch recently with fatigue and its really been getting me down, as it is having a knock on effect on my daily life. I'm usually a positive and easy going person but this is really testing me this time. I have decided to prescribe myself complete bed rest for a couple of days just to ground myself and hopefully regain some energy. My question is the ITCH. I have developed a really terrible itch but only at the top of my arms.......... It comes on in the evening and turns into a nightmare when I am in bed and gets worse if I turn on my side. Has anyone else experienced this? I have had the usual MPN itch in the past and taken antihistamines but I am baffled by just the top of my arms? (I would suspect the itch isn't helping the fatigue because my quality of sleep is poor). My counts in October were good and under control, I take Hydroxy 1000mg daily and aspirin. I did start taking Vit B complex , B6 and B12 for the fatigue, which I have stopped since yesterday just in case it might be that................
