I was going insane this morning. I itched a little before bed last night but put an ice pack on and fell asleep and was fine. Woke up this morning and all hell broke loose. I started itching uncontrollably-much, much worse than when I went to the ER last time for it. I tried the oatmeal bath, shaving my legs(the itching ALWAYS starts in my feet and legs and travels from there), lotion, the itching tabs under my tongue the doc said to try, ice. NOTHING was working! The itching was so intense my heart was racing, I couldnt control anything and broke down and started crying. It was just so unbearable I couldnt take it. I started to feel like I was hyperventilating from it and my arms and hands started to tingly, and get numb from my oxygen level being messed up. I iced again, and jumped in the oatmeal bath again. Things started to slow down a bit and wasnt so intense. A friend was on her way over because I started to feel like I was going to faint and throw up. Hubby was working and I was home alone. Right now I feel like I have an extreme case of the flu and wish it would either go away or I would throw up so I can get some relief. I dont even know what to do anymore. Any of you Lymies out there have any tips for me??? This is one bad herx and I am not a fan! I havent eaten anything I am not supposed to, I havent done anything different....maybe from the sauna this week and eating the sugar earlier in the week by accident?? I dont know, I just know its a living hell and I want OUT!!! Not sure you will be able to see how bad the itching was but I will post pics on my legs and me icing it. Maybe some of you have had the same thing??
