RESTLESS and itchy

Arg so frustrated!!!

Sooo hard to sleep and I'm restless like crazy!! And oddly enough itchy((tryin to figure out if that's a result from eating so much junk???))) I feel terrible cause my sex drive is low and it's never been this way either

Anyone else feel this way?

What you consume is a direct indication on how your gunna feel. If you eat crap you will feel like crap. If you eat healthy then...... Well you get it

Try a healthy diet and some moderate exercise and see how you feel.

itchiness was part of my early recovery and it did go away--just toxins leaving my body

The itchiness darn near drove me crazy. It's been two weeks and it is all but gone. I still have a bout if I take a hot bath .... I am going to talk to my doctor about it. The libido thing is also a problem and it's NEVER been an issue before. I thought quitting would make it even stronger, but it is the opposite and I am annoyed. I just have to believe i will normalize. I hope the doctor has some explanations.

Try aveno for the bath or some lavender oils before you got to bed. As for the libido...
it took almost three months before I would consider myself 'normal' again.
Just give it time and stick to it. It WILL get better.

The itchiness is a symptom of cirrhosis. Best to mention that to your Dr.

It can be a symptom of that, but a lot of other less worrisome things too
By all means see your Dr if you're concerned tho

Just putting in my two cents on the itching. I itched a lot after quitting but it did get better and I didn't have cirrhosis. Anyway, it wouldn't hurt to have blood work done anyway as part of a general physical exam. I've discovered I'm pre diabetic but my cholesterol is fine.

Oh ... did we have to go and mention the "C" word! And I still have two days before I go to the doctor .... now I am back in a panic. Geez. I was doing so well. I had a lot of itchiness, but it has stopped since I did. Yuck.

As far as I know noone in this thread is an MD Luisa

the chances are it's far more likely to be something more mundane.
