I don't know if this is a crohn's related issue or something else but I go thru periods of my skin hurting. Like it's tender to the touch but never everywhere - the last couple days it's been my right leg, from the knee to my hip. Nothing is visibily wrong but it feels like I should be all scraped up. Does this ring any bells for anyone?

it is the strangest thing...i've had some other skin issues also- VERY itchy patches on my arms or back/neck...neber any rashes or anything...but the knee thing is a weird one.

Are you taking prednisone? Prednisone can make the skin hurt.... and feel tender like that... I remember when I was on it, there'd be days where it hurt to put my clothes on...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Hmm.... Perhaps you should talk to the doctor about this, then.... It could be caused by any number of things...

Hey you guys!!!!!
I had this!    My legs and arms hurt to the touch, the shower, the bedsheets, my clothing....   KILLED.....   I also have swelling.
The Dr called it something I cannot spell but here is my attempt:Erythema Nodules....
 
They do go away, but it takes awhile.....
