Hi there Uppity,
My Name is Butch, and I'm new around here. Although I've been lurking only for a few days I've found many of my symptoms here on this board. I've been waiting to introduce myself with my own thread but I did want to jump in here in case I can encourage you.
I have had VERY severe generalized (a-symptomatic) Pruritus for about 3.5 years now. So yeah I can vouch for your itching. I've also had blood in my toilet paper many times in the last 3.5 years. I've had a GI tell me I have bleeding hemorrhoids, (though they don't itch or bother me. Just bleed).
About the only medication I've found to help with the itching is Gabapentin, and Lyrica.
Good luck. Keep us informed.
