Itchy scalp

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey everyone I've had fibromyalgia for years now I have just been diagnosed last year with costochondritis. I've also had an underactive thyroid for 30 years. Does anyone who has fibro or underactive thyroid suffer from an itchy scalp ?..this has literally drove me insane for the past several years now and is worse in evening. Any info is much appreciated thanx

    Yes I get that symptom frequently Lynn. It is very annoying for sure! I think it has to do with circulation so sometimes a good head and neck massage could help. Just another lovely thing to deal with heh Lynn?! Hang in there girl. xx
