Im seeing a GI doc for severe stomach pain, usually after eating.........and also for rectal bleeding. She had asked me if i ever get itchy skin? At first i thought she was crazy to ask me such a weird question............but i have been having very very itch skin. Mostly my shoulder and calves. Does anyone know what this would have to do with or be associated with to having digestive/bowel issue's. Im still in the process of many tests to find out what is going on. I was thinking food allergies of some sort..........but i truly cant pinpoint to what im eating that is causing soooo much pain and discomfort.
Hi. Jaundice can cause ithcy, yellow skin. Spending time in the sunshine can help jaundice. Jaundice is a condition of the liver that causes high billirubin counts. Try to relax. Your doc is doing all the right things running these tests. Many of us here at the posts are going thru similar things. This is a wonderful place to ask questions and get feedback from people who are worried and scared as well. You are not alone! God bless you!
