Itchy palms and feet

I have had itchy soles and palms for the last couple weeks. Advil seems to help since it is an inflammatory. The lymph nodes on the back of my head were sore about 2-3 weeks ago and I went to the doctor for that. No visible marks but itchy from the inside out.

Hi Christine,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
Get the liver enzymes checked, sometimes whenever there is derangement of the liver enzymes you can be having this itching in the limbs.
Take care

I had and abdominal ultrasound about 2 months ago. My doctor called saying they had found a spot on my pancreas and they wanted to schedule and MRI. A few days later she called saying that she and the radiologist felt that this was just a cyst and didn t see any reason to do the MRI and suggested a follow up in 3-6 months. I have noticed that my stools have this foul odor that I ve not had before and they are soft and dark. I also have been experiencing itchy skin and also palms and feet. The itching isn t all of the time. There isn t any yellowish color to my skin or eyes. I don t know if I should be concerned or not.

I have been having symptoms that no one can diagnose for about two years. Assuming no rare disease, and no microbes or parisites, i believe 99.99 of all of my symptoms are related to my vagus nerve and digestive system as a whole!Now with that being said about on oct 14th i went out for some beers to watch a football game. I hardly ever drink though!!!!That night and next day i had all over body itching and have had it ever since!!About two days earlier my throat was hurting and i remember two days before that my teacher told me she was sick!!I have had the sore throat ever since then(about seven weeks), then out of nowhere on about NOV 8th my joints and muscles and bones have become very tender and ache, in particular my hands and wrists and knees and hips.!!!I have a high GGT liver enzyme with all other liver numbers normal, Low vitamin D in the past and now i found out that my Autonuclear test was positive when i asked to be tested for lupus!!!They did other autoimmune tests and they were normal!!!Never had any throat cultures done!!My doctor thinks that my throat hurts because of heartburn at night!!I am very concerned about the joint pain and the sore throat and NON stop itching that is NOW waking me up at night as of last night!!PLEASE HELP as the Veterans ADMIN sucks!!!!!
