Just wondering if anyone has had an itch as one of their symptoms, or especially a localised itch.
Finished treatment last Oct. and have been doing good except for thyroid problems due to neck radiation. (Diagnosed Hypothyroidism Jan 09)
Had 3 month check up a few weeks ago and everything seems ok. Had physical, bloods and chest xrays.
Have been having some chills, and told docs that, and I'm putting them done to thyroid levels only getting sorted out recently. Was also having some sensitivity under arms, but think that is also strange side effect of thyroid problem aswell.
But I have been getting an extremely itchy scalp/head for the last couple of weeks on and off, and think this is happening the day after drinking alcohol.
I know all over itching is recognised as a symptom, or some people get itchy legs and stuff, but have read on cancer research.co.uk that itching after alcohol is a symptom but haven't come across this as a symptom anywhere else. Have noticed some other itching on arms and body
last night (had drinks sunday) but only really head otherwise.
Original site was in my neck. I'm just wondering if anyone has came across this or has any other info. Not too worried just a little concerned. Have 1 year CT scheduled for August anyway.
Thanks a mill!
