Itching - a sign of something more?

For the past week my hand (and sometimes leg and foot) has been continuously itchy with so obvious cause. It’s not red, flaky, lumpy or anything physically noticeable, but it’s constantly itchy! There’s not pattern either, so not getting worse when in contact with usual allergens such as detergents or cats.

Googling suggests this might be a symptom that my liver isn’t too healthy, which usually I’d dismiss an Dr Google hysterics, but I just happen to be having gallbladder issues at the moment to the point I have a consultation next week to discuss whether it will be removed or not. Is it worth bringing the itching up with the consultant, or am I going to sound like a mad woman?
