I have a tingle, burn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itchy feeling in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span>, mostly at night. I have a lot of trouble sleeping also. There are no signs of anything on my feet or hands. the only thing that seems to bring relief is cold water or cool air. I can't find answers anywhere....
I jus got diagnosed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> really the whole body itches, but hands and feet the worse! I have been using whole plain olive oil and that seems to help some. I really gob it on though. I got the big blisters on my hands that won't heal, and I keep putting bruises on myself from itching and don't know what to do about it. I am embaressed to show them to my bf.
If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span>. If I am outside <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the weather is hot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am wearing flipflops my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
I also have tingling in toes, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> arm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fingers, as well as a crawling itchy feeling on my scalp. I have had MRI <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> blood tests to rule out LUPUS and MS. So far everything is o.k. except it seems like I have moderate rheumatoid arthitis, which I guess is not so good, but less frightening than having MS. You say you feel fine, are you fatigued, and feel pain as well as the tingling.

The hands go numb at night. I am courious, Maybe this has something to do with my body getting use to the new levels?

I had a green discharge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itchy nipple for 7 years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> had a mammogramme that they said was a bit suss. got me back and did another one and then told me it must have been a shadow on the first mammogramme and the discharge was from me being a smoker.......(b.....sht) I never believed that but now I think I have cancer of the nipple/breast and m.s.
Every time I go abroad on holiday after a couple of days I notice my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> reacting. Each year i aim to keep them out of the sun, put them in the shade, wear high factor sun cream, not walk on the sand and without fail every year they react. They feel boiling on the inside but not necessarily boiling to touch, they are not red, they swell up significantly, tingle if i go in water and are painful/itchy around the nails and tops of the toes.

I've also had tingling in the face area.........mouth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tongue. my eyes sometimes feel itchy as sometimes my skin.

I can't hold a book or magazine and turn the pages, my hands and fingers feel sore.
I then started to experience intermitant sensations of what I can only describe as light numbness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pins <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> needles in both my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span>, but primarily on my left sided extremeties.I would also occassionaly get these sensations on a small area of my left thigh.These sensations regularly come and go, but last seconds rather than minutes/hours.

The dr gave him a type of blood pressure medicine to try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> make the swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the bumps on his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> go away. But he got bad hives from the medicine. So he quit taking them, and are waiting to get new bloodpressure medicine for him. Now he has what looks like bumps under his skin on his palms of his hands, they swell for a while till they slowly go away, then come back again.

The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> are worrisome, as these can be symptoms of diabetes. Especially if there is no rash. IF you have been tested for that, and came back negative, then I would start looking at things like hand,foot, and mouth disease, eczema, psoariasis, allergies, dry skin, nerve damage, and other much worse problems. Because you said it's under the skin, it sounds more like a nerve condition. There are so many things that it could be, and without testing it may be hard to figure out.
* Sores or bruises that heal very slowly * Dry, itchy skin * Blurry vision that changes from day to day * Unusual tiredness or drowsiness * Tingling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> numbness in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> I am 19 with only my great grandma having diabetes (not sure what type…) I had my fasting blood glucose levels tested over 6 months ago and got 4 which is normal but these symptoms have only started within the last 4 months.

I have really itchy hands, feet, face, and neck. It really bothers me.
recurring or hard-to-heal skin, gum, or bladder infections, blurred vision, tingling or numbness in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itchy skin. Unlike type 1 diabetes, symptoms for type 2 diabetes usually occur gradually over months or even years, and some people with type 2 diabetes have symptoms that are so mild they go unnoticed...."

I used to wash my feet & of course hands before going to bed. I would wake up with my hands & feet that were so itchy i would scratch til my hands were swollen and hands & feet burned so bad sometimes even would get a rash due to it. I finally found out that i was allergic to yellow 5 which is in so many thigs such as Mt dew, dial soap (which explains my itchy hands & feet, i used it), shampoos, foods etc.
I apply different lotion, hydrocortosone, caladryl, bactroban (never together) but just rubbing on lotion it makes it more itchy. I rub harder, wash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> scratch with washrag, apply more lotion <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then scratch with my nails. Eventually it turns red and gets little bumps. I take either claritin or benadryl and by morning it is mostly cleared up, some spots a little red and the rash might leave little red dots. I usually do this at night, during the day I can ignore more easily.
The 4th and 5th fingers are affected by the ulnar nerve, which can be interrupted by pressure at the elbow or the chest area (e.g. thoracid outlet syndrome). Parethesias in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fingers can also be caused by broader diseases such as peripheral neuropathy (more common in the feet but hands can be affected) and various others. Correct diagnosis of the causes of finger paresthesias is important and treatment can often reverse the damage.
my legs have been itchy every day since i was born. im 21 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i have always had itchy legs. when i was younger my family would all scream at me as once i started i couldnt seem to stop. the itching gets so bad that it annoys you and fustrates you and it becomes painfull. my dad used to smack my legs where it was itching and it used to help but it didnt last too long only for about 5-10 mins and i would be scratching again.

It's a nerve disorder. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> all the nerve endings are in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>s</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> because people with spd tend to suppress the symptoms nearly all day, by the end of the day when I'm all settled in bed and relaxed (whether stressed or not) I feel like my nerves get the chance to kind of just "explode" or just fire away in other words. So the itching feeling is a result from my nerves going nuts from my suppressing my spd sumptoms all day and they are just letting loose.
i can take percoset 7.5mgs as needed for back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> leg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>feet</span> pain, that is due to my back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> back main nerve,. my pain doctor says he doesn't beleive it's really due to my meds. so what does a body do? if i have problems sleeping i can take a klolonapin 1mg. if any of this makes sense, please let me know, by writing back. i'd like to know if you all have heard any thing different about the spots and swealing and pain in feet and legs.
