Re: Uncontrollable sudden itching 24/7 & RUQ pain...MISERABLE & waiting
Hello itchy, and I know it's no fun. This type of itching plaqued me for several weeks. Nothing helped including anti itch lotions and shots. After a couple of weeks (I would guess) jaundice showed up. The first symptom before the itching was light colored floating stools. Three doctors couldn't diagnose so I went to the ER. They promptly did a CT Scan. The bile duct at the intersection of pancreas and liver was blocked. A stent was installed relieving the blockage and the jaundice and itching went away within a day or two. Ultimately I was diagnosed with stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer. Bummer. Currently undergoing chemo. I hope something else is causing your itching. Be well!
