Help w/itching down arms

I have been having an intense itching which is getting worse lately. I have a bulging cervical disc and several bone spurs. The neurosurgeon said the disc and spurs have nothing to do with my itching. I have itched for years and wear Lidoderm patches on both arms daily. I'm on no other meds. My neck (the bulging disc) began hurting back in the winter...no great pain just comes and goes depending on my activity.
My question is have any of you experienced this pain. I have heard of only one person that ever experienced this and he was helped by a spinal cord stimulation device. Do any of you know about this?


  • I have tingling and a feeling of something crawling on my arms sometimes. I wonder if your itching is how you feel nerve tingling.

    I don't know about spinal cord stimulators, but some people do seem to get relief for pain from them.

    I will be interested to read if anyone does get the same symptoms as you.
