Christine, I have also been soooo fatigued and itchy. YIKES just about
drove me nuts, itching at night and trying to sleep. Anyway, I went and saw my primary doctor and she did some blood work and it came back that my b12 was low...so, I have been getting injections of b12 weekly and in 2 more weeks she will do more blood work.
I still have periods of itching, but not as bad as it was. She also told me to take claritin since I can't take benadryl or atarax due to side effects. Luckily, I had no side effects from the claritin and it is OTC now.
I am still fatigued and take a nap on work days, but I hope this goes away as soon as my b12 levels get to normal.
