Anonymous- I wholeheartedly agree with Helena. You need to see a Dr. I had some relief with a temporary application of gabapentin. You could mention that. I’m very surprised ice didn’t help. It’s the only thing that helped me. (Along with the gabapentin). I am in the camp that believes BRP is caused by improper neck alignment (weather and temperature made zero difference to my itching). I started seeing my chiropractor, I sleep with a side-sleeper pillow (which travels with me), and a zip lock bag for ice in case it returns. I’ve been itch free for over a year (knock wood), and I’m so grateful for this forum. Knowing I wasn’t crazy was a huge relief!
If your doctor is dismissive about your itching, find another one. That’s common among us.
Good luck to you!
