Hi, I have a very good friend who has been in remission from Hodgkin's for 4 years now - but in the last month or so he has had severe itching all over his body - and just an all over body pain. He went to his Oncologist for an exam - they did blood work and found that his Sed Rate was high - but told him not to worry - and checked his Thyroid - which was fine - they gave him a week's worth of steroids and Vistirol - an anti-anxiety medicine to help with the itching. I'm worried that these are symptoms of recurrence. If you have any ideas could you please post them and also e-mail me at email@example.com. Thanks so much.
