Gestational DM: Not sure what you mean this early... You have NOT mentioned how many weeks pregnant. Nevertheless get oral glucose testing by obstetrician or primary care provider.

B vitamins: Neuropathy can be very painful but b vitamins can be beneficial in alleviating the pain. You may want to see a neurologist to get further help as far as determining the cause; if you have not done so already.

Other things.: Knowing the source of the itch may help in the treatment. Bite? Contact with some compound you are allergic to? Unknown? Cortisone may help. It is not usually immediate. Ice to the area may help. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or other antihistamines may help. Things like this are usually self limited. If persistent, grows in size or greatly exacerbates, then get it looked at by pcp or dermatologist.

I have been getting tingling in my foot for about 2 days now and now really bad pains in my right arm and neck.. Am I having a mild heart attack?

No: Your symptoms do not suggest a heart problem. The arm and neck pain sounds musculoskeletal, perhaps a pinched nerve in the neck. The foot problem could also be irritation of a nerve in teh leg. You would need an examination to pinpoint the problem.
A 19-year-old female asked:

I have recently discovered a small round spot or lump on the eyelid of my right hand eye, it sometimes hurts and has just ever so slightly blurred the vision of my right eye. What could this be?

Lump in lid: Most likely this is a "chalazion". A cyst-like formation resulting from a specialized oil producing gland that has become blocked. It often needs to be excised surgically, but in the early stages may respond and resolve with wam compresses and antibiotic/steroid drops or ointments. Some ophthalmologists may prefer to inject the "lump" with a steroid injection with generally good response.

What could clear tissue in urine mean? 74 yr old with one kidney removed due to cancer as well as bladder infections.

Not sure what: Clear tissue may mean, but it is time to get a urne analysis and some blood work, and then decision about imaging or cystoscopy. You did not say if it was the kidney, its pelvis or ureter that was cancer. I would definitely call or visit your urologist.
