I am having SEVERE Itching to the point I stratch to the point of bleeding any adivse down to 12mg and off completely in 5 days. I have Soma & Perks as a back up if needed. I can NOT take any pain medicines it apprears because bowels actually stop completely. Had Maker test done & looked like I was pregant. Had to cleanse alot. The Itching is crazy on tops of feet, on tops of hands & arms, everywhere it seems.? I think I went through the worst I pray.  I do not know what my 5 days coming will give me having nothing. Taking it one day at a time. Beside cortisone cream is this itching part of it? I don't see know one talking of itching? Please advise & Help! Thank you
