You know how when you sit on a hot sidewalk for too long, suddenly you get that deeeep, painful itch? Scratching doesn’t help, because it’s too deep, but you scratch anyway? That’s what this feels like. It’s happened in the past, but right now it’s driving me crazy. My feet itch like mad. Scratching doesn’t help. Hot or cold water, either, or lotion, or athlete’s foot stuff, or anything else I’ve tried so far. My feet look fine–no redness or swelling, no flaking or funkiness.
I think it’s a nerve-ending thing, because sometimes my palms itch at the same time. This time it’s just my feet.
I’ve also had a migraine, or something damn close to one, for two days. That’s finally better, after a trip to the chiro.
So: allergy? something in the water*? stress? headache-related?
Any ideas, short of foot amputation (I’ve already considered it), welcome.
karol (now my palms kinda itch too)
*Seriously. Our water here varies tremendously, and while I can’t actually smell it now, sometimes I do think it causes me to have some systemic reaction.
