Severe internal itching all through my body

I am 74 years old. For the last year or so I have had horrible, horrible itching attacks. They start at my scalp, move down into my hands and the rest of y body. I have neuropathy and no feeling in my feet but the bottoms start to itch. It is all over my body and affects al aspects of my life and it scares me because of the horrible crazy thoughts I get with it. I can't sleep or eat, when I do eat I get nauseous and feel like I am going to vomit. I have had a total hysterectomy 44 years ago, I have high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. I also see a pain management Dr. for severe back problems. It is ruining my life as I absolutely can't function. The only thing that helps are steroids, they help short term but then it comes back. A few months ago I thought they had stopped but then last week it was back. Please someone somewhere help me, I just don't know how much more I can take, that's how bad it is.
