Left-sided colitis, in remission for a few years now with 8gm of Sulfasalazine DR daily. Sometimes, I need to take Ibuprofen to control my migraine and that causes hiccups, never blood, just the abdominal cramps.
For the last 2 days, my skin itches as if all the places touched poison ivy, right from the back of my neck, arms, armpits, abdomen, groin to legs. All spots random and they itch randomly as well. Like in the morning, armpits will itch and then in a few hours, back of the neck and then legs. I also noticed that my sebaceous gland secretions (skin oil) smell rancid (pretty off). I do not have abdominal cramps or blood in the stool at the moment, so I am unable to figure out what the heck is going on.
Contacting the GI won't help as she would just send me to a dermatologist, and I will just get a steroid cream prescription (been there done that, without the skin oil smell though). This time, I would like to dig deeper to find out if there is any connection to colitis or something totally different.
Anybody else been through similar symptoms?
Thanks in advance.
