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.

would it be prudent to test liver function (blood test) -- given Lipase has been trending upwards (just above normal) Amylase trending lower (although in range), vitamin D -- low requested to take supplements, and EUS performed was normal. I m thinking these results could be related to liver, am I on the right track?
