Severe itching in my leg and it won't go away!

Sep 17, 2017 11:38 PM

So I need help because I am in tears right now due to the itching in my leg. So when I had fallen and hurt my self I pinched a nerve cause I lost all feeling in my leg. Well I'm getting the feeling back. I get severe itching in my leg and I go and itch it and it bugs me even more. My mom thinks its the nerve coming back, but I'm not sure thats what it is. Does anyone have any ideas of what it might be and how to help it feel better so I can actually get some sleep?

I also have severe itching on my right thigh . I have bulging discs and wonder if that is causing itching?

Nerve damage and/or regeneration can cause severe itching. Try a topical with capsaicin or DMSO. That can help a bit.
