    Unhappy Really worried...itching so bad

    Hi everyone. I am a little nervous to post here but I need to talk to others who have HA like me.

    Quick background. Diagnosed OCD with major health anxiety.

    Last year I had a CT scan that found an enlarged spleen. Needless to say I fell into a deep hole with this (after googling of course). Was referred to a hematologist who repeated some tests and said he found nothing suspicious and I just have a larger spleen. But since then fears about leukemia and lymphoma plague me.

    Starting this past weekend my hands and feet are itching uncontrollably. And I have had a ear/sinus infection or the flu for the past 2 months with a never ending cough. So I am so worried about lymphoma I can barely stand it.

    I get horrible night sweats with my Zoloft so that is no help.

    If anyone can help me I would appreciate it 😢

    Has anyone ever itched like this?

    I actually went through a period of increased itchiness for like 2 months. Basically every day. Mainly my arms, hands, and legs. But occasionally other places too.

    Eventually it went away about 4 months ago.

    I too feared lymphoma, and honestly am still convinced I have lymphoma because of other reasons.

    Itching has about zero to do with cancer. Having lost 2 people to blood cancer. One to leukemia and the other Monday to myeloma, I can tell you neither one had itching. They had weight loss, tiredness, achiness. They never once questioned if they had cancer.
