Wondered if any of you out there have found any solutions to the dreadful itchies?
They are the most prominent symptom for me. Diagnosed 6 years ago at 51 with PV Jak 2 positive. Occasional venesection and daily Aspirin so far. I have extreme itchy legs at times (seems no pattern as to when it comes but it will be mornings) and the only thing I can do is go for a very brisk walk to eleveate the symptoms. This means getting up early enough to do this to try and 'outwit' the itchiness before they come! (I work freelance). It's always in the morning and I never shower or bathe then as it would bring on extreme symptoms. I shower or bathe in the evening and symptoms are only slight then weirdly enough.
It seems to be brought on by getting out of warm bed into cooler atmosphere and can also be brought on my changing clothes in the morning.
What does everyone else do? (and what meds are you on...did this change?) Would love to hear from you.
