Hi Jayne, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Since you said you have Prolapsed Discs, there might be some amount of Nerve compression of nerves which are arising from the spinal cord. The itching which you are suffering from is indeed due to this nerve compression and is called Brachioradial Pruritus which happens if there is nerve damage. Kindly consult a Orhtopedist at the earliest as he shall examine you and prescribe medications like, anti depressants, anti convulsants, creams for Local application or Local anesthetics.
Good Luck.
