Since September 2016 I have had constant PRV symptoms - Severe pruritus, headache, fatigue, joint aches and bruising easily. Even when my HCT level has been in normal range.
I go to the hospital every 8 weeks for a blood check and tend to have to have venesection due to raised HCT at every other visit - so venesection every 4 months.
During my 8 weekly visits, I'm asked about symptoms and how I'm feeling generally...and I always let them know about the symptoms but nothing is made of it. They only say (not verbatim) "That's strange as your HCT is fine..."
I've seen my GP about it and she tested for thyroid, diabetes and kidney function and all came back OK. So I'm puzzled, fed-up and losing sleep due to the ever present itching and headache - I make sure I'm well hydrated, never take a bath (as I haven't got one) and make sure I use only non perfumed products in the shower.
My question, does anyone else suffer symptoms even when bloods are OK?
