I'm new to this site. I have had Psorarsis since I was about
16 years old. I had the presentation where you have spots all over your body, and it took many months to be diagnosed at the time, and after many creams etc I have the UV treatment and have been mostly free of it since then. Except on my scalp and spots under my eyebrows. I'm now 30.
On and off for the last 12 months I have had this itching with no rash, tingling prickling sensation on the skin all over my body, even the soles of my feet and palms, sometimes the prickles hurt like someone stabbed with me with a pin, and tingling in my hands and feed. The tingling I can put up with as there is no real numbness but the itching can be almost unbearable. It almost feels like there is somethign on my skin, but there isn't.
I suffered this for 12mths as my Old GP thought it to be just some skin condition and didnt really do much about
it aside from blood work which was all (and apparently all clear) it comes and goes, they thought it might have been linked to my pregnancy last year, and diagnosed cholestasis. However 3months after the birth of my DD, I have it again worse than ever. It dosent even seem to have a trigger. If I have the itching symptom this seems to be worse when its hot.
The only thing that coensided with the start of this was being bitten by some bird mites from chickens we had. However we had the house sprayed at the time, moved houses etc etc, and still it comes and goes. No allergy medication helps. Taking vitamins dont help, creams dont help. I already use oatmeal cream and body wash due to my sensitive skin as other stuff just dries it out. It feels like it is coming up from the inside if that makes sense?
The only new develpment this time is more tingling in hands and feet, and I did have an episode where my arm was painful, but not muscular painful that lasted for about
4 hours. It was very uncomfortable and thought I was going to have a heart attack. I've started in the last few weeks to feel unwell, neasuea on and off, frequent bathroom trips and bloating in the abdomen. My Psorarsis has kicked off again too on my scalp and is starting again on my chest.
I also seem to have little blood blisters, tiny ones all over my skin however they aren't in big patches and becuase I have lots of freckles I've only just noticed.
Could this be linked to my Psorasis? Or could it be the sign of something like Celiac? I really feel like I'm going mad and that Dr's are just not taking me seriously but it is seriously starting to affect my life as it is becoming more unbearable to live with.
I've just had more blood tests and one thing they are testing for is Celiac's.
