Re: Don't know if this makes sense
just what reason was the puncture done for in the first place?i was thinking a possible case of shingles til you mentioned this is actually occuring in many different areas.shingles stays on one nerve root and affects one dermatome.
based on your description on how this procedure actually went,there could be some level of damage at that site caused by the idiot who did not know what the heck they were doing and had to keep poking around in a very highly sensitive area.sometimes itching is actually stemming from a 'neuropathic itch'? i have this becasue of spinal cord damage but it can occur anytime nerves are actually damaged.its just another bit of neuro wierdness that stems from nerve damage at times.i do think obtaining an actual MRI of that procedure site could reveal a possible reason for this.just a shot in the dark here.but getting this evaluated by a neurologist at this point too wouldn't hurt ya know?someone not knowing what they were actually doing and poking around in your spinal canal ,it actually gives me shivers just thinking about it,but there are alot of areas that are just susceptable to possible damage anytime something is stuck in there.it just needs to be evaluated.obtaining that MRI there would really be a good place to start.i wish you luck with this.please let me know how things are going,K?i wish i could have been more help for you, **
