Almost painful itching in hands and feet?

Anybody else get almost painful itching in hands/feet?

It feels like pins and needless but actually quite painful and itchy. Definitely feels neurological, no rashes or anything at all.

Comes on when I'm too hot, stressed or anxious and almost always after I've had something hot to drink or eat too.

I had that, among a zillion other bizarre things. I don't like to post unless I know something for sure. All I know is that I got better after antibiotic therapy. What is your diet like?

The only thing that helped was to rub my bare feet on concrete.
No, I haven't actually tried antibiotics yet. It's literally the only thing I've not tried yet, but as I have no reason to ask for antibiotics, there's no reason for my GP to give me any!

My diet at the moment is gluten, dairy, wheat, any mostly soya free. Has been for over a year now.

Have you been checked for neuropathy? Sounds like that and many of us have it.

No, I actually haven't as of yet. I was initially being investigated for FND but the first neurogist I saw did a few minor tests and based on an MRI I'd had done he dismissed the notion that I was suffering with anything neurological.

I am pretty sure it's neuropathy of some sort myself.

They've been on and off for months now, but recently started to get worse and more frequent.

Funnily enough, I am awaiting a date for sinus surgery too! Ha

Yes same thing. I think its due to neuropathy related to herpes virus infection. Areas are also cold and have Raynaud's disease.
