      Thanks for replying. I only have burning sensation on my stomach whenever I get hungry. And a very itchy which I couldn't sleep at night. it's a horrible feeling. I never had allergies from food and I'm already 35.

    Hi adelle 1105

    Itching over the body can be linked with liver problems. Visit your doctor and tell him/her of your itching symptom...

    Wait this is interesting lol. I haven't gone to gastro yet, but I've been having Gastritis type symptoms, and I've also been having generalized itching.

    It is mostly on my neck and arms but can be anywhere rlly. I just start feeling itchy in a spot and I scratch and then it becomes red and sometimes even little hives appear. It's not my detergent or anything, I don't know what it's coming from. I thought maybe it was a stress itch bc I also have anxiety.

    I'm interested in this discussion as I too have excess acid issues plus I come out in itchy hives, mostly on my arms. I wondered if there was a connection with histamine?

    Hi Linda,

    My gastritis is kicking back up due to a lot more alcohol intake lately, and I havent been taking my prilosec. The worse the pain in my stomach has gotten (assuming my gastritis is acting up) the more itching I get. it's usually on my arms, head, and legs. Glad to read that others experience this as well. i'll be hopping back on prilosec, tuning the diet, and cutting the alcohol, i'll see if that helps.
