just heard from my co-worker another anecdote about insane prenatal itching.
back story: when i itched, i did not blame it on ms - i blamed my new b-complex with 1000mcg b9, had my blood tested, and my b9 so crazy high (2170 but i don't have the units grr), and when stopping taking it stopped the itching, this all twigged me to the memory of my mother suffering terrible itching during both pregnancies, and only during pregnancy. i asked her if she took prenatal vitamins and she said yes. of course, prenatal supplementation involves b9 due to fears of defects. perhaps too much b9 for some?
and back to the present: the sufferer i've just heard about mentioned the itching to the doc but they never figured out what the problem was. this woman is just starting a second pregnancy. maybe this time they can drop the b9 for her a bit and save her some grief without doing the baby harm. i understand a mother-to-be needs to get about 600mcg b9 per day or thereabouts. so if they have her on 1000mcg there should be some wiggle room. fingers crossed!
what does this have to do with ms? not much i guess, just if you get a weird symptom don't automatically blame it on the crappy ms nervous system... you might be able to fix
