  • Itching can sometimes be a sign your liver is playing up. I would book an appointment with your GP or Rheumy team. It must be driving you bonkers! Hope you are itch free soon, Jane xXx

  • yes i have been for bloods today thanks

  • I have been itching like crazy for the past few weeks. Even my head is itching so bad I thought that I might have nits !( I didn't!) I put it down to my levothyroxine as each time I stopped taking it the itching stopped after a couple of days and every time I restarted it, the itching started again. Clemmie

  • I agree about liver - keep us posted if you find out what it is. I get crawling all the time and my LFTs are often high. The higher they are the worse the crawling sensation is.

  • Hello beeckey, I found that I get itchy skin when it's a bit too dry. If my lovely wife applies moisturizer to my back, it usually gets a lot better. For my shins and feet, I use shea butter. No flakey skin and itches anymore. Not sure if that may help you. All the best.

  • I have exactly the same problem worst at night in bed. The French for it is fourmillements (ant crawling feelings}. There doesn't seem to be much that can be done about it. My liver is OK.If you find a cure please let me know.
