    Unhappy Neuropathy?? Rash?? The Itchies!!!!

    I get the itchies in one spot. No rash, no hives. There's never anything there except that it itches to the pluperfect darndest. I also am getting ghost pain that pops up in different spots.

    Is this the neuropathy that y'all talk about? Who do I ask about it? Rheumy. GP or the Neuro??

    Help please,
    Nonna

    The neuropathy that I have is a numb or sometimes burning feeling, mostly in my feet and toes. It feels like I'm wearing a sock, but I'm not. Sometimes, when I've been on my feet for a while, I won't be able to feel my toes at all. This could get scary when I had to drive home from school, since I couldn't quite feel how much pressure I was applying to the brakes and/or accelerator. I've also had those phantom itchies. They seem totally different from the neuropathy for me.
    I've had all kinds of neurological tests, but since they all have come back "normal", the neuro looks at me and says "You can't have neuropathy".
    I guess I have phantom neuropathy!
    Hugs,
