      unfortunately my results weren't great!

      GASTRITIS, barretts and todays results ulcerative colitis.

      there is most definately a connection with the flare up of gastritis and itching mainly at night.

      ive found low dose valium helps ease the agitation.

      they arent bites, just my way of describing them.

      omg, where to start?

      tiredness, headaches, general feeling of unwell, bloating,stomach pain, wind, bleeding, itching,fever, rapid heart beat,heartburn, trouble swallowing certain foods, mind foginess, depression, trouble sleeping......

    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?
